Kernos gets a funding boost from Waitrose

Each month Waitrose in Sudbury – as part of their company remit to help local community projects – selects three good causes to share a donation of £1000, in proportions decided by customers’ distribution of their checkout tokens.

In February one of the three local charities that Waitrose selected was the Kernos Centre – a welcome recognition of our continuing provision of professional counselling and support for people suffering from emotional and psychological difficulties in Sudbury and the surrounding area.

Waitrose customers seem to have contributed their tokens generously to the Kernos cause since, last month, we received a cheque for £268 – our share of the February scheme. This donation will go some way towards providing essential counselling for people without sufficient means to fund their own.

If you were not a contributor to the Waitrose scheme – but would still like to help the Centre by providing vital funding – you can do so either by:

1) sending a cheque, made out to Kernos Centre, 32-34 Friars Street, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 2AG


2) clicking on the Donate Now’ button at the top of the this page, and following the instructions

If you are a taxpayer, your contribution could also be eligible for Gift Aid – which means that every £10 contributed is worth £12.50 to us. For a Gift Aid Declaration form, please contact us – either at the above address or by e-mail at
