Kind-hearted Morrisons staff in Bradford raised more than £1000 for a cancer charity with a Hawaiian-themed carnival for customers.

Staff at the store on Mayo Avenue donned flower garlands and bright clothes to raise money for CLIC Sargent. It helps young people battling cancer and is the supermarket’s charity partner.

The event featured a tiki bar, tombola, face painting, inflatable slide, trampolines, an ice cream van, fire engine, hula hooping competition and limbo games.

It raised £1,080 which will be doubled by the Morrisons Foundation.

Ciara Livermore, people manager at the store, said: “It sparked joy for kids and adults alike.

"Everybody loves a good tombola and the colleagues got to dress up and decorate their departments inside the shop to match the theme outside in the car park.

"hey all got involved and were in high spirits. Customers asked a lot about CLIC Sargent and we've had a great response to the day - they keep asking when we're doing another one."

Carmel Greene, Morrisons’ community champion at Mayo Avenue, added: “We are passionate about supporting the children and their families through such a difficult time.

"It felt great knowing that what we were doing was raising money for such a worthy cause, and also raising awareness on the topic by talking about everything CLIC Sargent is about with our customers.”

The store joined other Morrisons branches across the UK in hosting carnival events throughout August.

Jenny Dixon, fundraising engagement manager at CLIC Sargent, said: “A huge thank you to the whole team at the Morrisons Mayo Avenue store for going all out carnival this month and raising money to support young lives against cancer – the team and customers had a field day."
