Together for Short Lives and Morrisons

Together for Short Lives

The Morrisons and Together for Short Lives partnership has been transformative for the UK’s 54 children’s hospices and 99,000 families caring for a seriously ill child. Thanks to colleague, supplier and customer support, our partnership has raised over £9 million and is on track to far surpass the £10 million target.

These funds have already created an incredible legacy of support, enabling children’s hospices to deliver vital care, complete essential building work and purchase new equipment. We have piloted and launched an innovative Outreach Project to connect hundreds of underserved families with support in their local community, and we’ve helped those struggling financially with cost of living support, bereavement grants and emergency food deliveries, whilst funding special events for families to make precious memories together that will last a lifetime.

Through our unique twinning model, where all colleague fundraising is ring fenced for their local hospice, we have engaged colleagues, with 99% of those surveyed saying the partnership made them proud to work for Morrisons. This has enabed us to raise nationwide awareness about children’s palliative care and the wonderful work of hospices. In short, this is a mutually beneficial partnership worth celebrating!
