Give a little love
Sophie Jarvis, Waitrose & Partners community lead, Saltash store

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.

Causes we support: a case study

Local causes

Waitrose & Partners Southend recently donated £524 to local health and wellbeing charity, Trust Links, after the organisation received 50% of the votes from customers, for their cause.

This was a welcome surprise to Matt King, Trust Links CEO who said; 

“One in four people are affected by poor mental health and suicide is the biggest killer of men under 49, so this donation will literally change lives.” 

As part of our scheme, £1,000 is shared between three local causes every month and our customers decide who gets what.
