"I'm pleased to be supporting the good work of the London Orchard Project and creating a lasting legacy to celebrate 75 years being part of the John Lewis Partnership. Finding a charity which operated specifically in London that work with local communities to promote healthy eating as well as caring for the environment fits so well with the Waitrose Way. I'm really looking forward to getting muddy by helping to plant some trees!" Ron Whitmore, Waitrose
