We think it’s important to give something back to our communities, and last year we donated over £26m to local groups and charities.
Every one of our sites has a dedicated Community Champion who plays a crucial role in connecting our stores with their surrounding communities. They support local good causes and work tirelessly to make a difference, placing Morrisons stores at the heart of the local community. Every year we invest over 700,000 hours in our Community Champions so they have the time to make a real impact.
The Morrisons Foundation supports registered charities in England, Scotland and Wales – awarding grants for projects and match funding money raised by Morrisons colleagues for their chosen charities. Since launching the foundation, we’ve donated over £30m to support over 2,500 charities making a positive difference in communities right across the country.
Here in Horsham we have already donated £1,250 to Horsham Matters, a charity that supports homeless people in the area. The grant supported the purchase of sleeping bags, blankets, pillows and camp beds for their homeless night shelter in June 2020.
