26th July 2018. Waitrose in Truro have shown their support for the NCI station at Portscatho with a sizable donation from their Community Matters fund.
Late in July, Carole Chapman from Waitrose visited the NCI Portscatho lookout to hand over the cheque for £516 and to see the work of the NCI watchkeepers at first hand.
She said “We are really pleased to make this donation to the NCI station – it is the largest single donation Waitrose in Truro have made, which demonstrates the wonderful support you have from our customers.” Sue O’Donovan, Station Manager at NCI Portscatho on Pednvadn Point, thanked Waitrose and their customers for such a Generous donation, adding that it would greatly help towards purchasing new equipment to enhance the capabilities of the Watchkeepers on duty.
During June 2018, National Coastwatch Portscatho was one of the three charities chosen by Waitrose in Truro. Shoppers expressed their appreciation for the work of the Lookout and its Watchkeepers by placing the familiar green tokens in the NCI box.
