Together for Short Lives is proud to have been chosen as Morrisons charity partner until October 2024. We’re thrilled that the partnership which launched in February 2022, has already raised £6.6 million for families caring for a seriously ill child.
When colleagues hit the £5 million milestone earlier in June, our Patron Simon Cowell had this message of thanks to everyone who has helped to the partnership to raise this incredible amount of money.
This fantastic amount is thanks to the generosity of Morrisons customers, colleagues and suppliers. We’re delighted to welcome McColl’s convenience colleagues into the partnership in June 2023, who will help us get closer to the £10 million target by October 2024.
Together, the partnership is raising vital funds for children’s hospices across the country and helping families make precious memories together. We’re also hoping to reach out to those families across the UK who don’t yet know about the support they can access through our helpline and online family support hub, and in their local community.
Reaching thousands more families
“Hearing the news that your child is seriously ill is devastating, ” says Together for Short Lives CEO, Andy Fletcher. “Families can be left feeling scared and alone. I can’t tell you what a difference this amazing new partnership will make for these families. Knowing that Morrisons colleagues up and down the country are on their side, means the absolute world.”
The money raised through our partnership will give families access to vital care from local children’s hospices and help them to spend less time worrying and more time making memories together. It will also enable us to reach thousands more families caring for a seriously ill child who need support.”
The money the partnership has raised has helped do all of this:
