McColl’s convenience stores have announced today that they are joining Morrisons colleagues in their fundraising efforts to raise £10 million by October 2024 for charity partner Together for Short Lives.
Together for Short Lives is the leading UK charity for children’s palliative care and supports the UK’s 54 children’s hospices, including Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice. Morrisons chose Together for Short Lives as their charity partner in February 2022 and stores have been working together to help raise vital funds for children’s hospices across the UK, helping families treasure every moment they have together.
