MALMESBURY-based support group HEAlS is £240 better off thanks to shoppers.

The organisation attracted just over half the £500-worth of green tokens donated at Waitrose in Chippenham during December, which are turned into cash and handed over to local good causes.

HEALS, which launched a UK foundation late last year, is also looking for people to join the local group as trustees. People with skills including finance and fundraising, business management and leadership are sought for the voluntary role.

The group helps those in need, families and vulnerable people. Anyone interested in becoming a trustee can email for information.
