Waitrose "Community Matters" Donation

We are pleased to say that Waitrose Supermarket in Truro have made The Lizard Lifeboat Station one of the recipients of a donation from their “Community Matters” scheme. We have very gratefully received the sum of £333.00 from the fund. We offer a very special THANK YOU to Waitrose shoppers for selecting us this month as one of the 3 recipients from the fund. 

Please read on for more detail of this very worthy cause supporting local charities:

Waitrose & Partners Community Matters. We support good causes and our customers decide who gets what
What is Community Matters? 

At Waitrose & Partners, we are part of the communities we work in and this is our way of giving something back.  We started our green token scheme in 2008 and it’s now the longest running community initiative of its kind.

In-store and online, we donate a portion of money between different charities each month – and our customers decide who gets what. So far, we’ve donated over £35 million to good causes around the country – and there’s still more to be done.

How it works

How the green token scheme works 

Every month, each store donates a share of £1,000 (£500 in convenience shops) 
between three causes, so  THANK YOU WAITROSE SHOPPERS!
