The Green Token scheme is one of the many ways Waitrose gives to the local community.
Every month Waitrose donates up to £1000 to three good causes chosen by Waitrose customers.
In the month of July this year, Nacro Bracknell was featured in the green token scheme at Waitrose Bracknell, alongside 2 other local charities, we got the opportunity by building relationships with the Waitrose community matters team at Waitrose GiveandGain events and thanks to the recommendation of Nacro by WPC 5829 Lucy McDonnell of the Bracknell Youth Offending Team.
Big thanks to WPC Lucy McDonnell for putting Nacro forward.
Nacro green token box raised £538 the most out of the three charities who were in the July 2015 green token scheme, which shows great support from the local community for the work we do in Nacro, at Bracknell Nacro we provide education services for young people, we have a construction workshop and work pairing courses.

Waitrose created a ‘BIG’ cheque so I could take some pictures to put on Twitter. @
John Lewis partnership / Waitrose community matters team have rules about how the money is to be spent; they stipulate the green token scheme money is to be spent locally.
We are aiming to spend this on an interactive white board for the Nacro Bracknell centre.
All Waitrose stores have a Community Matters Team and Nacro Bracknell will now be participating in the green token scheme every year.
John Lewis Partnership a great example of quality CSR.
