Superdrug, Savers & Marie Curie partnership raises £10 million
A 10-year partnership between Superdrug, its sister company Savers and Marie Curie has reached its mission of raising £10 million today.
Since 2013, Superdrug and Savers customers and colleagues have raised over £10 million for the end-of-life charity, equivalent to funding over half a million hours of nursing care.
The collaboration between Superdrug, Savers and Marie Curie has seen years of fundraising via limited edition product launches with donations, to the 3 times a year-annual fundraisers in store, distribution centres and offices.
The funds raised help ensure the charity can provide care and support for people living with a terminal illness in the UK, including essential nursing and hospice care, a free support line and a wealth of information and support on all aspects of dying, death, and bereavement.
Today, Superdrug and Savers have pledged to continue their efforts and have increased their commitment to raise further funds throughout 2023.
Peter Macnab, CEO of Superdrug says: “We are proud of our longstanding partnership with Marie Curie and the success of our campaigns. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who works and shops at Superdrug. Without your individual support, we wouldn’t have been able to raise an amazing 10 million! This will go a very long way toward funding the great work Marie Curie do.”
Doug Winchester, Managing Director of Savers commented: “We hope that our initiatives have offered some much-needed self-care and support to young people coping with bereavement and grief and want to thank our Savers teams and customer’s for supporting our fundraising.”
Marie Curie Chief Executive Matthew Reed said: “It is incredible to see our partnership with Superdrug and Savers has raised a staggering £10 million to support Marie Curie’s work. We are hugely grateful to their staff, suppliers, and their customers who have put so much energy into their fundraising efforts. We know everyone at Superdrug and Savers are hugely passionate about supporting people living with terminal illness and this fantastic support means more families across the UK can receive the high quality, expert care they need at the end of life.”
As a recognition of Superdrug’s continued support for the charity, this year Marie Curie recognised the retailer as ‘Corporate Partner of the Year’ in their recent awards. Find about more about Marie Curie and Superdrug’s partnership https://www.superdrug.com/mariecurie.
