A Welwyn Hatfield charity that provides Christmas Day meals for elderly and lonely people is urging residents to show their support.

The Mixed Group is one of three charities selected by the town’s Waitrose to take part in its Community Matters scheme, which involves shoppers pledging support for who they think deserves the most money.

The Mixed Group founder Sean Cox said: “I am delighted that Waitrose in Welwyn Garden City has selected The Mixed Group to be one of the three charities under their Community Matters Scheme in October.

“Your support and that of your friends in putting the green tokens in our section will be greatly appreciated.

“At the end of the month they calculate the tokens in each of the three sections and the £1,000 is divided pro rata. Last year we received the highest amount.

“With the help of you, family and friends let us hope we achieve the greatest amount of green tokens.”

Each month Waitrose donates £1,000 between a trio of competing local charities.
