Last year the Orchard Project was chosen as one of the local organisations supported by the Waitrose Community Matters scheme. This meant that we had a box in the foyer of Trumpington Waitrose, and customers voted for us by putting their green tokens in the box. The more tokens, the more dosh!

We want to say a big Thank You to everyone who put a green token in for us, and to Waitrose for turning those points into a lovely cheque. The money has already been received and used on the Swift Tower. Which is just as well, because I don’t know what the bank would say if we tried to get a cheque this size across their counter.
