Waitrose supermarket at the Capitol Centre in Walton Le Dale recently donated £300 to Charnley Fold Enhanced Day Support, which had been nominated by the stores’ customers.
When a member of the Waitrose team contacted the day support’s Officer in charge, it was suggested that it would be a nice idea for a small number of service users to come along with staff to collect the cheque.
Waitrose then invited those staff and service users to have a complimentary drink and cake in the store’s café when they visited.
Two staff and three service users visited the store on 2nd May and enjoyed a selection of cakes and tea and coffee; the group was then presented with the cheque for £300.
It was an idea by the day support team to utilise the donation from Waitrose, to purchase two lightweight wheelchairs for the centre; this will enable all service users to benefit from our trips out.
