Morrisons customers and colleagues have raised £5 million in less than 18 months for our charity partner, CLIC Sargent - meaning we are on course to break our fundraising record.
To date, we've been able to help CLIC Sargent provide 3168 families with a grant to help pay for hospital parking, travel costs and basic provisions. The money has also funded a team of Nurse Educators who will work with community hospitals so confident cancer care can be delivered locally. That means less travel and disruption to family life.
The 4015 children and young people diagnosed with cancer each year will also be able to access support and information anywhere and at any time, thanks to a Morrisons-funded transformation of CLIC Sargent’s digital services.
“Cancer leaves families emotionally and financially devastated. It means mounting bills, disruptively long commutes for treatment and fear over the future. We can’t stop cancer, but we can limit the damage it causes, and with Morrisons support we can fight for more young lives than ever before. Thank you to every colleague and customer for supporting this life-changing partnership.”
Kate Lee, Chief Executive of CLIC Sargent
