£100,000 donation to NHS Charities Together

Neil Clifford, CEO of luxury British footwear and accessories retailer Kurt Geiger, presented a cheque for £103,871 for NHS Charities Together to his niece Kerry Morrison, an anticoagulant nurse specialist at Portsmouth’s Queen Alexandra Hospital last week.

Kerry accepted the cheque on behalf of NHS Charities Together following the ‘We are One’ fundraising effort by Kurt Geiger.

Louise McCathie, Director of Fundraising at NHS Charities Together, said: “It is fantastic to have the support of such a high profile business like Kurt Geiger and I’m taken aback at how much they have raised through the ‘We are One’ collection. The money raised will be used to provide vital support to NHS staff, volunteers and patients across the country so thank you to everyone who contributed.”

Kurt Geiger’s ‘We are One’ product range gives 100% of proceeds to NHS Charities Together. The range was launched in March last year as the pandemic began. Kurt Geiger then offered a 50% discount on all its products to key workers through its partnership with Blue Light Card, which has to date has totalled over £500,000 worth of discounts. It has also donated gift cards worth £100 each to critical care workers in the 70 hospitals near its UK stores, worth over £400,000.
