Throughout January, the Farnham branch of Waitrose is supporting the Mayor’s charity, Garner’s Goes Bananas with its community funding scheme ‘Community Matters’.

At the end of the month, £1,000 will be divided between three local good causes. The more tokens a charity gets, the greater the share of the money they will receive.

To vote for the Mayor’s charity, please pick up a green token each time you shop in Waitrose and pop it in the box marked Garner’s Goes Bananas.

The Mayor is raising money for a project to extend and upgrade the Garner’s Field activity centre which is just outside Farnham. The centre has been used by generations of scout groups, Duke of Edinburgh award parties and other youth organisations since the mid-1970s and is now in need of improvement.
