The Norfolk store surpassed targets and raised a fantastic £490 for children and young people with cancer.

Store manager Ashley Broad said: “Thanks to the Community Matters scheme, we have been able to support many vital causes which rely on voluntary funding and we are thrilled to be able to help families coping with cancer on this occasion."

By placing a token in the Community Matters box at local branches of Waitrose, customers can choose to support one of three causes.

The more tokens a cause gets, the bigger the donation they receive. Each month every Waitrose branch donates £1,000, split between three local good causes.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Daisy Turner said: “Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a fantastic opportunity to support children with cancer and their families, and we are so grateful to the team at the North Walsham branch for choosing to support CLIC Sargent.”
