John Lewis has announced the first three local charities that will benefit from its Community Matters scheme.
The charitable scheme allows Cheltenham customers to decide which of the three charities they would like to support by donating tokens provided after shopping.
The scheme will run for 12 weeks from Thursday 18 October 2018 and will finish towards the end of January 2019 when a new set of three charities will be chosen.
The first charities chosen are:
Help2 (Cheltenham Borough Homes) – an independent, non-profit organisation run by Cheltenham Borough Homes. They identify tenants who find themselves in unexpected financial hardship and are facing exceptionally difficult circumstances.
The Leukemia & Intensive Chemotherapy Fund (LINC) – a cancer support charity working to improve the care of patients receiving treatment within Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court – The only palliative care inpatient unit in Gloucestershire and provides expert palliative care and support for people who are living with a life-limiting condition, as well as supporting their families.
The store is set to open on Thursday 18th October – read more about it here.
