Thank you Waitrose!

12 October 2020

WESC Foundation has benefitted from Exeter Waitrose’s latest donations to local community charities and causes.

The Exeter-based charity was recently presented with a cheque for £333 to support its work with young blind and partially sighted children and young adults.

The money from the Waitrose and Partners Community Matters scheme will go towards providing specialist expertise, equipment and adapted facilities to help the charity’s young people, many of whom also have other complex and additional needs.

Cameron Merry, WESC Foundation’s fundraiser explains more:

“We’re grateful to businesses here in Exeter for stepping up and helping us break down the huge barriers that are often in place just because of someone’s vision impairment or complex needs.

“Together we’re able to support our incredible young people to overcome their own challenges and empower them to live their best lives.”
