Superdrug and Savers are celebrating their long-standing partnership with Marie Curie, having raised over £10 million since the initiative began.

Since 2013, the retailers have raised the equivalent to funding over half a million hours of nursing care for the end-of-life charity.

The collaboration between Superdrug, Savers and Marie Curie has seen years of fundraising including limited-edition product launches with donations and annual fundraisers in its stores, distribution centres and offices.

Superdrug and Savers have now pledged to continue their efforts and have increased their commitment to raise further funds throughout 2023.

Peter Macnab, CEO of Superdrug, said: “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 towards funding the great work Marie Curie do.”

Matthew Reed, CEO of Marie Curie, 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.”
