Morrisons is once again banding together with CLIC Sargent on World Cancer Day 2020, to raise awareness of how cancer affects children and young people - as well as vital funds. This year, CLIC Sargent are highlighting the disruption a diagnosis has on the lives of young cancer patients, including not being able to see their friends or putting their education on hold.

To support World Cancer Day, the charity have designed three limited-edition wristbands in black, teal and plum which are available in store for a £2 suggested donation. Over the weekend of 1st – 4th February, CLIC Sargent will also be holding bucket collections in store, so look out for volunteers when doing your shopping.


Join CLIC Sargent and band against cancer this World Cancer Day. Find out more about the limited edition bands and show your support for young lives against cancer. 

Tawanda’s Story

“The support from CLIC Sargent helped me to keep on track with my education and not lose sight of the end goals which is so important.”

18 year old Tawanda was just three weeks away from starting his Sports Therapy degree at University of Kent when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He relapsed after his second year at university and had to defer for a second time. Despite all of this and having to learn how to walk, talk and swallow following his treatment, Tawanda completed his degree and graduated in July, 5 years after his first diagnosis.

#BandAgainstCancer for young people like Tawanda this World Cancer Day.

How your money is helping

Morrisons partnership with CLIC Sargent has raised £10.6 million since 2017. This has helped CLIC Sargent to:


Give more than 7,800 grants to families and young people which help with the unexpected costs of cancer, such as travel and increased household bills.


Fund a ‘Home Comforts’ scheme where parents who are not staying in a CLIC Sargent Home from Home can use it as a daytime base and spend time away from the ward.


Create a new Nurse Educator programme improving the quality of support for young cancer patients closer to home, meaning less disruption to family life.


Provide new online support groups for young people and parents helping them to connect with others, as well as launching a live chat function so anyone in the UK can access professional social care support.
