WAITROSE in Ely announced a major new charity initiative on Thursday - and local organisations will be the ones to benefit.

Each month, the supermarket will give away £1,000 - but it is up to customers which charity that money goes to. At the checkout, they will be given tokens to put in the pot for either Highfields School, Time to Talk, and Liam's Fund.

The Ely Standard's article on the plight of a disabled youth group based at Larkfields prompted Waitrose assistant manager Jo Smith to select them as the charity for July.
