Regular Waitrose shopper? Nominate us in store!

The good people at Waitrose & Partners donate a portion of money between three different charities each month and, best of all, customers decide who they'd like to support. So far, they've generously donated over £35 million to good causes. We would love for Hearing Dogs supporters who shop at Waitrose to nominate us at their local store.

Whilst the green token scheme is currently suspended, shoppers simply request a Community Matters application form when they next shop, fill it in and submit it at the welcome desk for Hearing Dogs to be considered as one of their next chosen charities.

We know our volunteers and supporters can wax lyrical about their favourite charity, but here's some suggested wording to get you started with this worthwhile and potentially profitable microvolunteering task:

Hearing Dogs work to help deaf people leave loneliness behind and reconnect with life. They help by alerting their owner to important sounds such as a doorbell, alarm clock and lifesaving sounds such as a fire alarm. They are also their constant companion and help them to regain the confidence to reconnect with their friends, family, people in the community and life. Deafness can be extremely isolating, and Hearing Dogs are ensuring that deaf people never have to feel alone again.

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People encourage shoppers and supporters like myself to help raise money locally to provide awareness, support and care for deaf people in the area who already have hearing dogs and for those who need one.

It costs £40,000 to train a Hearing Dog, and the charity is reliant on the generosity of the public to ensure that they can continue to change the lives of deaf people for the better.
