Waitrose’s popular green token scheme is a real asset to the local community

We are delighted to announce that the Chipping Sodbury branch of Waitrose has raised a grand total of £303 for us during February via its Community Matters scheme.  We are extremely grateful to them for their support and for their interest in the Hawkesbury Upton Literature Festival since its foundation three years ago.

Many thanks also to the Waitrose shoppers who kindly donated their green tokens as virtual donations to our cause.

The money from Waitrose will be used to pay for venue hire, thus directly benefiting the village venues that we are using, and helping to keep all the events free to attend for all our visitors. It will also cover some of the other running costs such as the provision of identification badges for authors and other speakers and for volunteers.

The 2017 Hawkesbury Upton Literature Festival will take place on Saturday 22nd April, and you can find the full programme of events here to help you plan your day.
