Waitrose Tokens

Haddenham Baptist Church is one of three charitable options currently vying for green plastic tokens in the Waitrose supermarket in Thame.

Over the last couple of years Waitrose has supported the Haddenham Baptist Church Christmas Lunch by making a financial contribution.

The amount of the contribution varies depending on the quantity of tokens received in the appropriate collection column near the exit door in the Thame supermarket.

This money is used to provide a traditional Christmas lunch, quizzes, fun and games and to give attendees a small food parcel to take home with some goodies.

Anybody is welcome to come along on Christmas Day, but they do need to have booked in advance. Booking is done by telephoning Marjorie Johnston: 01844 290060.

The Baptist church can arrange transport if required. And given the new wheelchair friendly transport that is now available in Haddenham (see here) organisers can now offer wheelchair transport with the new community bus.

Some of the attendees like to pay, so organisers provide a donation plate and any excess monies are given to the church to cover energy costs.

Waitrose also encourages its staff to join in a Christmas activity and in the last two years the church has had help from two Waitrose employees.

If you'd like to help raise funds for this excellent initiative, please remember to request tokens at the till and then place them in the 'Haddenham Baptist Christmas Lunch' collection column.

If you'd like to help on the day, please get in touch with Marjorie, Tel: 01844 290060
