Waitrose Community Matters Donations –
Supporting Local Charities and Good Causes in Chippenham
Community Matters is a Waitrose scheme that supports local charities and good causes. Also known as the ‘green tokens’ scheme. Every Waitrose shop selects three local causes a month (nominated by the local community) to receive a share of a £1000 or £500 donation from Waitrose. Since 2008 they have donated over £30 million to more than 90,000 good causes through this flagship scheme. Theses donations really make a difference to local communities, and help shops to engage with their local communities, from supporting youth sports to providing care for people suffering with life threatening illnesses.
To get involved simply post a green token (provided to you on completion of your shopping trip in Waitrose) into the Community Matters box of this month’s local good causes.
In July your Waitrose Branch in Chippenham supported the following good causes through community Matters Donations:
Wiltshire Air Ambulance – £310
Avon Court Care Home – £100
Friends of Chippenham Museum – £90
In their Community Matters this month are:

From everyone at Waitrose Chippenham and Borough Parade we would all like to say a very big “THANK YOU”.
