Morrisons: Proof that fundraising is a piece of cake
The first few months of our corporate partnership with Morrisons have been a huge success.
Staff and customers have already raised enough money to fund six new Save the Children FAST groups – an incredible achievement that will give children across the UK a chance to reach their full potential.
That’s why every one of the company’s 451 UK stores will be celebrating in style next Tuesday by cutting a special cake at 11am and offering slices to customers in return for a donation.
You’ll also be able to take advantage of a number of in-store promotions, all of which will help us raise funds, including the sale of special Save the Children wristbands at till points. These limited-edition wristbands, worn publicly by Save the Children supporters Stacey Soloman, Natasha Kaplinsky and Dervla Kirwin, are available for £1 each from all Morrisons stores.
Look out for collection tins in store, as well as at the company’s petrol stations and customer cafes.
“Everyone at Save the Children is thrilled to be working with Morrisons,” said Save the Children’s Corporate Partnerships Director, Douglas Rouse. “The money we raise through this partnership will help us transform the lives of thousands of disadvantaged children across the UK. No Child should be born without a chance. Together with Morrisons we can give them a better start in life.”
Dalton Philips, Morrisons Chief Executive, said: “As one of the country’s biggest retailers we have an obligation to give something back to the communities in which we serve. With the help of Save the Children, our colleagues and customers, Morrisons hope that our Raise a Smile campaign for 2011 will be even more rewarding than ever before.”
