MESSAGE FROM
WAITROSE
& PARTNERS

I’m very pleased to let you know that our event to support the industry charity GroceryAid this year will be the Waitrose & Partners Garden Party on Thursday 16th May 2019 at Dorney Court, Berkshire.

We’re planning a relaxed and unforgettable evening in beautiful, natural surroundings. Underneath the canopy of our large tented structure you’ll enjoy a delicious menu designed by our executive chef Jonathan Moore and refreshing tailor-made themed cocktails and drinks. The party will be packed with traditional garden games and exciting entertainment throughout with Jennifer Saunders hosting.

The Garden Party replaces the Waitrose Ball we’ve held for many years. In response to feedback you will see that we have looked at ticket prices and we have also included an entry level for smaller firms.

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.

Managing Director, Waitrose

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. We want to keep it this way long into the future, so thank you for supporting Waitrose.
