Waitrose Community Matters
If you shop at Waitrose please
nominate MHM Wales as your chosen local charity by completing the
nomination form found in store.
Three good causes receive a share
of £1,000 every month from the Waitrose Community Matters initiative.
The charities and community groups are selected by nominations from
customer and Waitrose employees, so please be sure to nominate MHM WALES in
your local store.
Customers shopping in store are
given a green token in which they can vote for which of that month’s three
charities they want to receive the donation by placing the token in one of
three Perspex tubes. At the end of the month the cash is divided up in
proportion to the number of tokens a charity has received.
You can also save your green
tokens when you shop until MHM WALES is nominated in your store, or to send
to MHM WALES so that we can pass the tokens to volunteers where there is an
MHM WALES nomination in a Waitrose store near them.
To nominate MHM WALES just pick up a leaflet in the store
from the customer services desk, and complete the details and then hand
back to the customer service desk. The form is very brief, and will
take just a couple of minutes to complete. You can also download and print out a copy of the form
here. We have provided some example wording for you below:
I think MHM
WALES(*town/county name* project) deserves support from Community
Matters because MHM WALES is a charity supporting people who are
affected by Mental Health which is an often overlooked illness that can
really have a devastating impact on sufferers.

nominated cause (if known) MHM Wales, Union Offices,

If MHM WALES is nominated and
successful in receiving a donation, we will be sure to spend that donation
in the local area where the store is based. This may be through funding a local
support group, hosting a Mental Health awareness event or distributing
Mental Health educational materials around local schools, universities and
mental health centres.
