New Morrisons charity partnership will help families who need hospice care

A new three-year partnership has launched between supermarket giant, Morrisons and national charity, Together for Short Lives that will make a big difference to children’s hospices like Chestnut Tree House.

Morrisons will raise vital funds for children’s hospices, helping us to deliver essential care and support to children, young people, and their families. Families like Essie’s.

Together for Short Lives CEO, Andy Fletcher says:

“Hearing the news that your child is seriously ill is devastating – 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.” 

Every Morrisons store is calling on local shoppers to join them for their ‘Butterfly Bonanza’ between 14-27 February – a fortnight of fundraising activities to mark the launch of the charity partnership.

Morrisons CEO, David Potts says:

“Together for Short Lives is an amazing charity which supports families through immensely difficult times and hearing the very important stories from families who have received their support was incredibly moving for everyone at Morrisons. I’m really looking forward to our partnership with Together for Short Lives and helping to raise vital funds to support families with seriously ill children and the wonderful hospices that care for them.”

Thanks to Morrisons colleagues and staff for choosing to support Together for Short Lives and children’s hospices across the country. With your help, we can continue to be there for local children and families. Thank you.
