Our CSR team were joined with Jess Druce, Corporate and Events Fundraiser at Severn Hospice, on behalf of our 90 colleagues to pledge to fundraise for Severn Hospice and the incredible service and support it provides in the region.
We have been part of the Shropshire landscape and community for nearly 155 years. Each year we donate to and sponsor a range of locally-based charitable activities and organisations. Additionally, we choose a company ‘charity of the year’ which is selected, and voted for, by colleagues. For 2023/4, it is Severn Hospice.
Katie Morris, Group Marketing Director, explained: “We have a thriving CSR team here who support our ambitions for our people, the community we are part of, and the environment. We are all delighted to be fundraising for the Hospice and to kick off, have just signed up to their ‘Walk in our Shoes’ challenge and are working on a number of other fun plans to raise funds for this vital service.
“So many of us are touched by the work of those at the Hospice and although it is incredibly hard to pick one ‘charity of year’, this was a highly popular choice.”
Jess Druce from Severn Hospice commented: “We are thrilled that the team at Morris & Company are stepping up for us, including taking on the Walk in our Shoes challenge this May.
“People always tell us how much fun they have getting involved in fundraising, especially when they’re doing it as a group or through work. I really look forward to hearing about their innovative ways of getting in those 10,000 daily steps. I’m sure there’ll be lots of healthy competition, and that they’ll have great time doing something wonderful for us and their local community.
“We have to raise £2 for every £3 we spend and are so grateful for the support from everyone at Morris’s who will make a real difference to the families we care for every day.”
