Children and families cared for and supported by Haven House Children's Hospice are set to benefit from a new partnership between supermarket giant Morrisons and charity Together for Short Lives.

When life’s short there’s no time to waste: New Morrisons charity partnership with Together for Short Lives to help families supported by Haven House Children's Hospice.

Welcome news for Haven House today as a brand new partnership launches between supermarket giant, Morrisons and charity, Together for Short Lives that will benefit families caring for a seriously ill child from in your local community.

Together for Short Lives is the only charity supporting the UK’s children’s hospices, including Haven House and families facing the heartbreak that their child will die young.

Together for Short Lives and Morrisons are set to raise vital funds for children’s hospices across the country, just like Haven House, as part of a flagship three-year-partnership launching 15 February 2022.

Morrisons will help us be there for families like Sara, who has been supported by Haven House.

"Monty was so precious to us no matter how short his life was. Taking him to the hospice, other people cared for him and loved him too. The staff gave his life value, and this was so special to us. Monty died at home on 7 December 2020." Mum, Sara

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.

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.”

Every Morrisons store is calling on local shoppers to join them for their special ‘Butterfly Bonanza’ between 14-27 February – a fabulous fortnight of fundraising activities to mark the launch of the partnership, as the charity’s famous butterfly flies up and down the country in support of seriously ill children.

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."
