Waitrose Green Token Scheme Funding Award

Sporting Challenge have been awarded £290 from the Formby Waitrose “Green Token” scheme.

By placing a token in the Community Matters box at your local branch you’re helping your community. Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has donated around £35 million to good causes in store and online

At the end of your shop in branch, you’ll receive a token to place in a box of the good cause you’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 you choose.

Online, Waitrose.com also shares a donation of £25,000 between 3 national causes. After checkout, you will be asked to vote for one of the national causes we are supporting. Each cause will receive a share according to the number of votes – just as we do in our branches.

Edward McCarthy Activities Organiser said: “I would to thank Waitrose for this very kind funding award.”
