As well as instore fundraising, Kayleigh organised a fundraising event at Todmorden Cricket Club which saw a quiz, live music from Stereofidelic and Kayleigh’s head shave.

Kayleigh added: “We will also be applying for matched funding, where Morrisons will match the amount raised, essentially doubling the figure.”

Joseph Clark-Bland, charity specialist at Morrisons, said: “Last year, with the generous support of our customers and fantastic colleagues across the country, we raised a magnificent £325,000.

“This year we’re hoping to do even better.”
