JOHN Lewis Trafford has boosted three charities through its Community Matters scheme.

Community Matters allows John Lewis customers to vote on how much a charity receives out of a £3,000 pot.

The three organisations to receive support were Children's Air Ambulance (£1,260), Age UK Salford (£990) and the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital (£750).

David Reeves, fundraising manager of Children's Air ambulance, is pictured receiving the donation from Carole Hartley, John Lewis' community liaison coordinator.
