Under the store’s Community Matters scheme, shoppers were asked to vote for a donation to their favoured charity by placing a green token into a box.

The group received £530 from the scheme in March.

Trust chairman David Dixon said: “We are very grateful to Waitrose for this helpful donation, which is the third time from this source in recent years.

“It is good to know that so many of the shoppers support restoration of the nearby Lichfield Canal in this way.”
