How will our £5 million help?
Colleagues at Morrisons stores across the country have been raising vital funds through many different ways such as in-store fundraisers, marathons, Treks, skydives and cycle rides. Many of the activities have been match-funded by the Morrisons Foundation which supports colleagues in raising money for charities including Together for Short Lives.
Morrisons customers have also played a part in this incredible milestone through cash donations in store and online, and through purchasing products involved in the supermarket’s ‘Every Pack Gives Back’ initiative.
With the money raised:
- Over £3,000,000 will be given to local children’s hospices across the UK to provide vital care services.
- 20 Building a Legacy grants of up to £50,000 will be given to help children’s hospices with building renovations or to create fully-accessible play areas so that children can experience the joy and freedom of play.
- 382 families have enjoyed a Making Memory experience, enabling them to have the chance to make precious memories together.
- Three Community Support Workers have been employed for two years, helping to reach thousands more families that need support with accessing financial assistance, and local palliative care services.
