Each month Waitrose in Berkhamsted choose 3 charities to which they give a share of £1,000. Wigginton Pre-School has been lucky enough to be one of the chosen charities in October. Please remember when you are shopping in Waitrose to drop your green token in the Wigginton Pre-School box – the more green tokens we get the bigger share of the £1,000 we will receive!!
