Did you know you can nominate Kidney Wales for the John Lewis Community Matters scheme? Every 3 months, each John Lewis shop selects 3 community groups or charities to help. Customers are then directly involved in deciding how much each nominated group receives, by using a token to vote for the organisation they’d most like to support.
Each shop has £3000 per quarter to donate, which is shared between the charities according to the proportion of the vote they’ve received from customers. For example, if a charity receives 31% of the votes, it receives a £910 donation.
Charities will receive support in whichever way will benefit them the most, either in the form of products, volunteering time from Partners, or as a cash donation.
So first we have to get nominated!
You can print and fill in the short nomination card here and hand it in at the customer service desk at your local John Lewis, alternatively you can pick up the Community Matters nomination form in store . It takes only takes a few minutes to fill it in.
