We want to say a HUGE thank you to our colleagues and customers who have raised a whopping £18 million for the UK’s leading cancer charity, Young Lives vs Cancer since 2017, helping us end our partnership on a high.


A HUGE thank you

We want to thank each and every one of you who has supported the partnership in some way over the last five years, whether donating in stores or online, buying our charity products or cheering on our staff, you've been with us every step of the way.

You, our colleagues and customers, have taken part in numerous fundraising campaigns, challenges and activities across all 498 of our stores. Our Community Champions organised fundraising events both in and out of stores, raising over £11 million of the final total! We've more than doubled the original target, making it our most successful charity partnership to date.

The money raised from this partnership has helped to fund financial grants to help families with the extra costs that cancer brings, funded families to use facilities in the charity’s Home from Home facilities whilst their child is undergoing treatment in a nearby hospital, and introduced support groups for service users and their families.

CEO of Morrisons, David Potts, said:

“There is no doubt that this is our most successful partnership and this is down to the tireless commitment shown by our colleagues up and down the country. I’d also like to recognise the role our customers and suppliers have made; without them we would never have reached such an inspiring total.”

CEO of Young Lives vs Cancer, Rachel Kirby-Rider said:

"It's been such an incredible five years working alongside Morrisons, and the final total has far exceeded any of our expectations. The difference this will make to the children, young people and families we support cannot be overestimated. We're sad to see the partnership come to an end, but I know on behalf of everyone at Young Lives vs Cancer and all the families we support, we will be forever grateful for all they have done."
