In January 2017, Morrisons colleagues voted for CLIC Sargent - the UK’s biggest children and young people’s cancer charity - to become our charity partner for the next three years. Together we'll help children, young people and their families fight cancer. On this page you'll find stories from just some of the people this amazing organisation has helped, along with updates on Morrisons fundraising and special events. You can find out more about CLIC Sargent's work as well as useful information and support on their website.
This Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Morrisons and CLIC Sargent are helping young people with cancer cope with the costs of cancer. As part of our partnership, we have given more than 3,000 families financial grants, meaning parents have one less thing to worry about. You can help us reach more families by buying a gold ribbon in store for a suggested donation of £1.
How Our Partnership Is Helping Clic Sargent Provide Invaluable Support
We'll help to raise funds that will allow CLIC Sargent to create a brand new team of CLIC Sargent Nurses, who will educate other health, social care and education professionals close to families’ homes. This will spread the skills and experience needed to provide the best possible care for young lives against cancer.
Together, we will create new 'Home Hubs' close to Specialist Treatment Hospitals, which will provide a welcoming environment where families can take a much needed break from the intensity of the hospital ward, and grandparents, parents and siblings can have a cup of tea and chat
Working together, we will be able to help expand CLIC Sargent's financial grants to families, which will in turn allow them to focus on important things like getting well. CLIC Sargent also want to develop a groundbreaking new digital hub, giving thousands of families home access to advice from healthcare professionals.

Why bells mean more to us at Christmas
End of treatment bells, which can be found in oncology wards across the world, are a way for children and adults to mark a milestone in their cancer journey. Family, friends, nurses, consultants and other hospital staff gather to watch as the bell is rung in what has become a symbolic rite-of-passage for those fighting cancer.
World Cancer Day
World Cancer Day falls on Monday 4th February in 2019, and will help raise awareness of how cancer affects children and young people. Look out for news of how Morrisons and CLIC Sargent will be working together on the day.
