Waterfields Bakers are a family business who are very proud to be associated with the communities around the 47 shops that we have in the North West.
Waterfields are pleased to support local hospices through the sale of our carrier bags and during a full calendar year the £13,000 that will be raised will be divided thus.
Half the money will be divided between the following
The other half will go to Macmillan nurses who play an inspirational role in both the hospices and the community.
Waterfields also have a number of shops that work with local charities that distribute food that is left at the end of the working day. If you work with a similar organisation we would be pleased to hear from you.
At a more local level, Waterfields continues to offer raffle prizes in support of deserving causes. If you are having a fundraiser for a deserving cause, please contact Mr Richard Waterfield, Chairman of Waterfields ([email protected]) and consideration will be given to all requests. We cannot guarantee to support everyone but will reply to all.
In 2015, we raised in excess of £6000 for Macmillan Cancer support and over £7000 for Children in need, thanks to the generosity of our customers and the inventiveness of our staff through raffles, tombola's and the sale of cupcakes throughout the shops.
Waterfields supported schools and organisations with raffle prizes and during 2015, we donated over £1500 in products to help with their own fund raising.
Until the end of March this year a total of £5996 has been raised, of this £2998 will go to Macmillan which is our Company Charity
And £428 will go to each of the following local charities:
Wigan & Leigh Hospice – Leigh Area
Willowbrook Hospice - St Helens Area
Halton Haven Hospice - Widnes Area
Claire House Children's Hospice – Wirral Area
St Rocco's Hospice – Warrington Area
Queens Court Hospice – Southport Area
Zoe's Place - Liverpool Area
I am a community Nurse and on Wednesday this week I called into the Earlstown branch of Waterfields to purchase a sandwich. As it was cold, the soup on sale caught my eye, it was Halloween soup; pumpkin. I decide to buy some even though I've never had pumpkin soup before. I sat in my car eating my sandwich and eating the soup and I was really surprised, it was delicious! Really flavoursome. I just thought I would let you know as in my profession we do not get many compliments, and I know how much it means to receive some!
