Waitrose Community Matters Supports NW7hub 

The NW7hub is delighted to have been chosen as one of Waitrose Community Matters recipients for the month of June. Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has donated over £30 million to good causes in store and online.

At the end of your shop in the Mill Hill East branch you’ll receive a green token to place in a box of the good cause you’d most like to support. The more tokens we get the bigger the share of the £1,000 available.  Your support would be much appreciated – everything we raise will go towards continuing the work of our charity and the future new build at Daws Lane

We were honoured to receive, in conjunction with the other Partnership Awards, the accolade of highly commended in the category of Outstanding Contribution to the Community.   In our nomination our Libraries Community Engagement Officer, who has supported us throughout the preparation and opening and for the past 2 years said:  “Through a combination of hard work and excellent commitment to customer service, our four partnership libraries have won over the local community. As well as committing to deliver a traditional library service to a high standard, they have also run a range of activities and events for the community and been a friendly face for the isolated.”
