The three organisations featured this month are, Cash for Kids, Drifters Reach Cat refuge and Caring Hands and the Open Council will be featuring the progress of the voting throughout the month with week by week image updates and analysis of the results.
Under the scheme Waitrose customers are given a green token at the checkout which is then used to cast vote on the organisation they want to support. These can be inserted in one of three Perspex tubes – one for each organisation. At the end of the month the tokens for each organisation are weighed. Then the beneficiaries will then receive a proportion of the cash. Easy!

Waitrose Charity Box Watch

The Open Council are keeping an eye on the innovative community giving initiative in operation at Waitrose Supermarket in Eldon Square. Each trading month Waitrose will divide £1,000 between three local organisations– such as welfare organisations, community groups, schools or local divisions of national charities.
