Woking CFR Team receives £410 donation
from Waitrose West Byfleet

Since its launch in 2008, Waitrose's Community Matters initiative has donated over £3 million to a wide range of charities and community groups. Each month 3 local schemes are nominated and customers vote for their preferred cause using a green token each time they shop and the money each cause is given is directly proportional to the tokens they receive. In June the Woking CFR team was nominated and received the most number of ‘votes’ leading to a very generous donation from the store of £410.

Team leader Simon Ramm says:

“We would like to pass on our thanks to everyone at Waitrose in West Byfleet for their support and the generous cash donation we recently received. The money will be used to purchase additional medical equipment that in turn will benefit the local community”.
