Shoppers visiting their local Morrisons supermarket in Illingworth will see a special Tree near the entry before entering the store.
This Community Giving tree has baubles with different amounts of donations that go towards the charity Mothershare, supporting mothers of babies and young children facing hardship.
During the lead up to Christmas and the festive season, you can pick up a bauble and pay for it at the checkout. 100% of your donation goes to Mothershare.
Please consider supporting this cause.
Each bauble represents a different donation amount.

Demand for the service is extremely high and they are helping more families than ever before and simply could not do it without your support.
