Welcome news came today for children’s hospices like ellenor and families caring for a child with a life-limiting condition as Morrisons announced they have reached £5 million pounds in their fundraising efforts for charity partner Together for Short Lives.

“We are honoured to be benefiting from this hugely successful national partnership." says ellenor Corporate Partnerships Manager, Jemma Kemp.

"Engaging with the Morrisons teams has been an absolute pleasure as it provided them with first-hand experience of the profound impact their support has on our patients and their families”.
The partnership with Morrisons is raising vital funds for children’s hospices across the country and helping families make precious memories together. Together, they are also reaching out to those families across the UK who don’t know about the support they can access in their local community, and from Together for Short Lives.
Morrisons hopes to raise £10 million by October 2024 to help us be there for every family caring for a seriously ill child. Mum Samantha is immensely grateful for the support they’ve received over the years from ellenor.
Twelve year old Harry Woodgate, who has cerebral palsy and complex health needs receives specialised paediatric palliative care from ellenor. In the last six months, Tina has been their dedicated nurse, building a strong sense of trust between Harry and Samantha.
