MESSAGE FROM
WAITROSE
& PARTNERS

I’m very pleased to let you know that, following the huge success of last year’s new-format event, the Waitrose & Partners Garden Party in support of industry charity GroceryAid is returning on Thursday 14th May 2020.

Join us for a very special evening at Dorney Court, the beautiful country estate in Berkshire. As well as delicious food designed by Waitrose & Partners innovation chefs and refreshing tailor-made cocktails, the party will be packed with traditional garden games, fundraising opportunities and exciting entertainment. Ticket pricing is staying the same as last year, with an entry level price for smaller businesses.

As you know GroceryAid provides a range of invaluable support for industry colleagues in need. It would be great if you are able to join us and in doing so help support this amazing charity.

Thank you.

Commercial Director, Waitrose & Partners

GroceryAid is the charity for all colleagues throughout the grocery industry.

The charity has been making life better for people in the grocery industry for over 160 years and today thousands come to the charity for help, support and advice. In the last financial year this amounted to a record welfare spend of £4.7 million. The funds raised at events such as the Waitrose & Partners Garden Party will help the charity continue to make a very real difference to people in need.

GroceryAid provides financial support through crisis and longer term grants, the provision of essential and mobility items, and a tailored programme for Carer’s.

In addition the charity has a 24/7 Helpline providing problem solving and emotional support for a range of topics including;
- financial advice and debt management
- physical and mental health
- relationship issues
- career advice
- basic legal matters
- benefits and carers advice
- telephone befriending service

GroceryAid is proud to support all colleagues who need our help.
