The "Free Tea and Toast" Bus has recently received a donation from Wimborne Waitrose, through their Community Matters Scheme.

The bus takes up residence in Wimborne Square on most Friday evenings from 10.30 pm to 1.30 am. As its name suggests it provides toast and biscuits with hot and cold drinks to those passing through the square. Some people just want to sit for a while, to chat and to enjoy a snack, and some have become regular visitors on Fridays.

The bus is run by volunteers, mainly from Holtwood Methodist Church, but with financial contributions from some of the other churches in the circuit.

Earlier in the year, Waitrose used the "contact us" button on this website to reach the team running the bus, as they wished to feature it in their Community Matters Scheme for a month. Local shoppers can drop a green token into one of three boxes, and at the end of each month, £1000 is divided between the three charities, in proportion to the number of tokens they have received.

Peter Aston and Revd Nigel Deller were invited into the store to receive the cheque, presented by Neil Ladyman, Waitrose team manager, and Stephanie Roberts, Community Matters Champion. (Click on the photos to enlarge). We thank the Waitrose Team for their interest, support and generosity.
