On the 9th of November North Somerset Enterprise Agency (NSEA) Chief Executive, Angela Hicks, attended a presentation ceremony at the Weston-super-Mare branch of Waitrose and was pleased to receive a cheque for £200 from the Waitrose Community Matters scheme.

Since its launch in 2008, the scheme has donated £14 million to local causes around the country which are chosen by Waitrose customers each month. Other recipients for the same period were the Macular Society and Freeways, a charity that supports people with learning disabilities.

Angela gave the audience at the ceremony an overview of the work NSEA carries out in support of local businesses in North Somerset and commented,

“We are very pleased for our work to be recognised by the wider community in this way and the money will help us continue to provide our free business advice service.”
