Each month, Waitrose Partners choose three causes to benefit from a share of the supermarket’s £1,000 regular donation.
Shoppers at the checkout are each handed a green token which they can place into one of three labelled boxes at the store exit, allowing them to learn about and vote for the cause they would like to support. The more nominations a cause gets, the greater the share of the donation they will receive.
The other results were:
* Tiny Tows Pre School £410
* Weston £229
* Towcester Museum £361
