Waitrose Community Matters Scheme Supports The LGF!

Publish Date: 27/11/2012


Some of you may have already seen the Waitrose Christmas TV Advert with Delia and Heston, who are encouraging everyone to support local charities this Christmas, and this is exactly what the kind folks at the Spinningfields branch of Waitrose have decided to do.

The LGF is really excited to have been chosen as one of three of the charities that the branch are going to support throughout the month of December.

There is £1,500 up for grabs and this will be split between The Lesbian & Gay Foundation, Salford Lads Club and the Lord Mayor’s Charity.  How much of the £1,500 LGF receives depends on how many green tokens our supporters donate to us when they shop at Waitrose Spinningfields, you won’t have to donate any money yourself!

The appeal will launch on 1st December and will last until the end of the month.  All funds received from the Community Matters Scheme will go directly towards providing counselling bursaries for disadvantaged lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

So, whether you are a regular customer or haven’t experienced Waitrose, why not pop along and at the same time show your support for a fantastic cause (that’s us!).

The Spinningfields branch of Waitrose is located on Bridge Street, for more information on this fantastic appeal please contact frankie.stevens@lgf.org.ukor call 0845 3 30 30 30.
