Highbridge groups share Waitrose financial boost
Two Highbridge groups have this week been given a financial
boost by supermarket Waitrose.
Highbridge Dreamscheme and Highbridge Community Youth Club have
received a total of almost £500 from Waitrose in Weston
after receiving donations from the firm's 'Community Matters'
"Every month Waitrose customers are given the opportunity
to decide how to share £1,000 of funding between three worthwhile
local charities. We are delighted to support the Highbridge Dreamscheme
and Highbridge Community Youth Club, who are playing such a valuable
role in our local community," a spokesman from Waitrose in
Weston told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
PCSO Claire Finch added: "A big thank you to Waitrose for
their support, it will be of great help to both groups with their
running costs throughout the Summer meaning we will be able to
continue providing diversionary activities for young people in
Highbridge through our team of dedicated team of volunteers."
"I'd also like to use this opportunity to ask any local
person over the age of 16 who would consider donating just a few
hours every couple of months to helping young people in their
local area to get in touch with me by email here
or on 07825 011647 to discuss how they may be able to help."
The Highbridge Dreamscheme were given £260 and Highbridge
Community Youth Club £225.
