VEC Chosen For Charity Scheme
VEC has been selected to take part in the Community Matters Scheme by John Lewis Poole. Every three months each shop selects three community groups to help. Customers then become directly involved in deciding how much each nominated group receives, by using a token to vote for the organisation they’d like to support.Each shop ha3 £3000 to donate which will be split between the charities according to the proportion of the vote they’ve received from customers. This means that if a charity receives 31% of the votes, it’ll receive a £910 donation. Charities will receive support in whichever way will benefit them the most, either in the form of John Lewis products, volunteering time from Partners, or as financial support.
