Mor­risons gives us their sup­port

Lennox Herald - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

CLIC Sar­gent is the UK’s lead­ing sup­port char­ity for chil­dren and young peo­ple with can­cer and their fam­i­lies.

Last month, col­leagues at Mor­risons su­per­mar­kets in the whole of the UK held a col­league bal­lot for their new char­ity part­ner, and we are de­lighted to an­nounce that we won!

Thou­sands of peo­ple across the UK, got in­volved in our cam­paign - and with­out them this sim­ply wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble. So if you are read­ing this now – thank you.

We can’t wait to start fundrais­ing with the won­der­ful peo­ple at Mor­risons, and wel­come all of their em­ploy­ees and shop­pers in Scot­land to join CLIC Sar­gent’s fight for young lives against can­cer.

Last year our teams in Scot­land sup­ported 600 chil­dren and young peo­ple and awarded £76,500 in fi­nan­cial grants that helped fam­i­lies cope with the ex­tra costs a can­cer di­ag­no­sis brings.

Our nurses, so­cial work­ers and other front­line staff across the UK work tire­lessly to limit the dam­age can­cer causes be­yond a child or young per­son’s health.

The £7mil­lion this part­ner­ship is an­tic­i­pated to raise will trans­form so many young lives. To­gether with Mor­risons, we’ll be able to stop can­cer de­stroy­ing more young lives than ever.
