Portishead Pilot Gig Club was lucky enough to be selected by the local Waitrose Community Matters Initiative for the month of September 2017.
The Community Matters Initiative chose Portishead Pilot Gig Club as one of their three local causes because of the benefits that rowing can bring to the community, such as health, fitness, well-being and social cohesion.
The funds generated by generous Waitrose customers from the collection of the green tokens have raised £183 needed for safety kit, in order to be able to get on the water.
Store Manager James presented PPGC members with the official cheque last weekend. Every little bit really does help and we’d like to thank everyone who showed their support for this cause.
