This is not just any charity partnership…M&S Food and Together for Short Lives have come together to support and raise vital funds for lifeline children’s hospices like Brian House.
Brian House is thrilled to be benefitting from an exciting new charity partnership between UK charity Together for Short Lives and M&S Food. By joining the M&S Food family, this special partnership is set to raise money for Brian House and 53 other children’s hospices, and make a lasting difference to the UK’s most vulnerable and seriously ill children.
M&S Food and Together for Short Lives are celebrating their partnership launch in Children’s Hospice Week (22-28 June 2020) – a UK-wide campaign to raise awareness and vital funds for children’s hospices across the UK. Children’s Hospice Week is especially poignant this year, with hospices going above and beyond to both take the pressure off the NHS during the Coronavirus pandemic, as well as delivering urgent care to children with life-limiting conditions.
Stuart Machin, CEO M&S Food: “At M&S Food we are a passionate team with a big heart and we are all excited about our new partnership. We have some big plans afoot for all our colleagues and customers to get involved in raising our target of 1million for the charity. From next month, Together for Short Lives will be one of the charities available to support via our SPARKS card and we’re looking forward to introducing lots more initiatives during the year.”
Brian House fundraising has been hit-hard by the pandemic, and the families we care for need our support more than ever. Social isolation has taken its toll and families are exhausted after months of providing 24/7 care for their child at home. M&S Food’s generosity could not come at a better time. It means so much that M&S Food are recognising the incredible work of our hospice heroes and giving their backing.
