Waitrose Community Matters

Waitrose Community Matters

Waitrose opperate a Community Matters scheme nationally and locally within their stores.  Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has donated £14 million to local charities chosen by its customers.

For the local initiative, at the end of the the customers shop, they receive a token to place in a box of the good cause they’d most like to support. The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive. Each month every Waitrose branch donates £1,000 (£500 in Convenience shops) between 3 local good causes that customers choose.


PNEWJFC are delighted that their Dallas International Girls Cup Tour has been selected as a beneficiary of this scheme. Charlotte and her mum were on hand to receive the £300.00 cheque towards the fund.
