Sidmouth Lifeboat helps mark Waitrose charity landmark

WAITROSE in Sidmouth celebrated handing out �40,000 to local causes since their Community Matters Scheme started in 2008.

Sidmouth Lifeboat – one of the first beneficiaries of the project along with Sidmouth Living with Cancer and Children’s Hospice South West – joined in celebrations last week and received a cheque for �560.

Branch manager Mark Shepherd is pictured with crew members including Theo Burgess, an assistant section manager at the store, in celebrating the handover.
