At the recent Volunteers Meetings, I asked volunteers to recommend Reading Matters in Sheffield and Rotherham for the new Waitrose Community Matters scheme.
The Sheffield branch of Waitrose will be giving away £1,000 each month. The money is to be split between three local organisations of which we hope Reading Matters will be one. Shoppers will then dictate how the money is allocated.
Obviously the first step is to get Reading Matters selected, so if you fancy filling in a form they are available at Waitrose, or do get in touch with me. The forms are incredibly simple, mine had a grand total of 22 words!
There is some more useful information about the scheme on the South Yorkshire Funding Advice Bureau's Funding News website.
Thanks to Anne for the tip off on this!
