This month, Morrisons employees across Sheffield will get an opportunity to make good things happen for families at Bluebell Wood by voting for Together for Short Lives as their new charity partner. 

Together for Short Lives - the umbrella charity supporting the UK’s 54 children’s hospices, including Bluebell Wood - have an amazing chance to win a charity partnership with Morrisons, but they need support from Morrisons staff to win.

Out of more than 100 charities to apply, a relatively small charity with a big heart, Together for Short Lives, has made it into the final two charities to be the supermarket giant, Morrisons, charity partner. The result will be decided by a 10-day Morrisons staff vote and the winning charity will enter a three-year partnership aiming to raise around £10 million.

“The funds and awareness raised through this fantastic partnership would make a real difference to the local children and families who rely on our lifeline support,” said Madeleine Oldale, Head of Communications at Bluebell Wood.

“If you work for Morrisons, we’d be incredibly grateful if you chose Together for Short Lives as your next charity partner in the upcoming staff vote.

“Remember – a vote for Together for Short Lives is a vote for your local children’s hospice.”

Andy Fletcher Chief Executive at Together for Short Lives highlights the difference this partnership would make for Bluebell Wood:

“Families of seriously ill children are pushed to their limits every day. Their local children’s hospice provides them with the time and space they need to make precious memories that last a lifetime – the chance to be parents, not carers. 

“At the same time, children’s hospices are struggling to meet demand, as the number of seriously ill children in the UK is growing, meaning more families are having to cope alone. 

“A partnership with Morrisons will make good things happen – enabling hospices to provide lifeline support to even more families who need them right in the heart of our community”.
