Get involved in your community

At the MPS Society we need to raise at least £1 million every year to help families who need our support because they are coping wither their own or their child’s life limiting disease. and The local community plays a vital role in helping us raise this money. Here are some ideas on how you can involve your community.


Placing one of our cash collection boxes at your till points or reception areas can help the MPS Society simple but very effective way.


Waitrose has been running their Community Matters scheme since 2008 and each month stores receive £1,000 to distribute between three charities nominated by customers. Customers then vote for their favourite charity. To nominate the MPS Society at your local store just pick up a Community Matters form in store

John Lewis, after the success of Waitrose Community Matters scheme, John Lewis decided to launch it in their stores too. Each store has £3,000 to split between charities. To nominate the MPS Society as one of the chosen charities, please fill in a nomination form at your local store


Asda is accepting online nominations for the charities you think they should support. Each store has a Community Life Champion who works a day a week to raise awareness for community organisations and inspire colleagues and customers to get involved.
