LOOK out for colleagues at a Liskeard supermarket this weekend as they continue their fundraising for Young Lives vs Cancer.
Staff at Liskeard’s Morrison’ store have been holding staff room bake-offs, colouring competitions and dress-up days to raise money for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading charity for young people with cancer.
Their fundraising drive continues through til Sunday (May 30).
With the money raised during this month’s campaign, the charity will be building a ‘Home from Home’ in Manchester called Jack’s House – a place where families can stay, for free, while their child undergoes cancer treatment.
CLIC Sargent is calling on people in the Liskeard area to how their support by purchasing a Jack’s House pin badge for £1.
The new Home from Home will be called Jack’s House in honour of 12-year-old Jack Thompson, who has raised more than £100,000 for CLIC Sargent, largely at Morrison’s stores.

badge sold helps CLIC Sargent support families in Cornwall and around the country cope
following a devastating cancer diagnosis.”
Holli Kellett, Morrisons partnership lead at CLIC Sargent, said: “A huge thank you goes to Morrisons Liskeard, for organising such fantastic fundraising. All money raised will support young people who have had to travel across the country for cancer treatment, making sure they have a free comfortable place to stay surrounded by others who understand what they are going through. The store’s enthusiasm for fundraising shows the ongoing dedication of Morrisons colleagues for CLIC Sargent, and we can’t thank them enough.”
