During February the GSPCA were overjoyed that the green token Community Matters box at the Waitrose stores in Admiral Park and the Rohais were in aid of the Animal Shelter.

This month GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne was invited along to the Waitrose Admiral Park store to meet Esther Langford Partner Co-ordination Manager who had a wonderful donation of £339 to help the 400 animals at the GSPCA.

Spring is without doubt the busiest time at the Animal Shelter with hedgehogs weak after the winter and baby birds being found and every penny helps make a huge difference.  The GSPCA are hugely grateful to Waitrose and all of the customers for the wonderful support as this donation will help all of the animals in our care at this busy time.

At Waitrose stores by placing a token in the Community Matters box at your local branch you’re helping your community.

The scheme across the Waitrose stores was launched in 2008 and has donated £14 million to local charities chosen by the public. At the end of your shop in branch at a Waitrose store, you’ll receive a token to place in a box of the good cause you’d most like to support.  The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive.

Each month every Waitrose branch donates £1,000 (£500 in Convenience shops) between 3 local good causes that you the public choose. also shares a donation of £25,000 between 3 national causes. After checkout, you will be asked to vote for one of the national causes they are supporting. Each cause will receive a share according to the number of votes - just as they do in their branches.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "Both Waitrose stores have helped us in many ways at the GSPCA from staff volunteering to raffle prizes and we are extremely grateful for all of their support."

"The team at the Waitrose Rohais store did so much to help Olivia the turtle and we want to thank all at Waitrose for helped raise funds for the GSPCA during our 144th anniversary which was in February."

"It was wonderful to pop down to meet Esther and the team at Waitrose Admiral Park and a huge thank you to all that supported with their green tokens."
