Waitrose & Partners has been revealed as the Platinum Sponsor for the Volunteer of the Year category at the Pride of Bracknell Forest Awards 2019.
A familiar household name across the country, Waitrose & Partners has three shops in the area, as well as its headquarters.
Lindsey Crompton, Partner and Social Impact Manager, commented: “Waitrose & Partners is proud to be supporting the Pride of Bracknell Awards again this year. Our headquarters are based in Bracknell and we have three Waitrose & Partners shops in the borough, so we’re delighted to sponsor the Volunteer of the Year Award in recognition of the inspirational members in our local community who give up their free time in service to others.”
Waitrose & Partners is committed to supporting the communities in which it trades. Every month, its shops in Bracknell and Sandhurst donate a share of £1,000 to three local causes – many of which are volunteer-led – and are nominated for by its customers through its Community Matters scheme. The supermarket also provides staff volunteering hours each year, which sees its employees volunteering at local schools, charities and community groups.
