Waitrose are again donating to FBCL. For the month of February, Waitrose North Finchley include FBCL among their three local charities of the month, and Waitrose Whetstone will do likewise, probably in April. All we have to do is to ask for green tokens when we shop there, and put them in the appropriate slot. Last time we were on their list it raised over £700 for the library.
