The young people's cancer charity Clic Sargent has extended its partnership with the supermarket chain Morrisons in a move that could generate £13m.

The two organisations' three-year partnership, which has so far raised more than £7m, was due to end in February 2020.

But staff at the supermarket have agreed to continue the relationship for a further year, it was announced yesterday.

Consequently, the target has been revised from £10m to £13m.

Clic Sargent recorded its highest-ever annual income of £28.9m in the financial year ending 31 March 2018, which its accounts say was "largely due" to the £3.6m it received from Morrisons.

A spokeswoman for the charity, which employs 535 staff, said Morrisons wanted to leave a legacy and the additional funding would enable Clic Sargent to build a new "home from home" in Manchester.

Clic Sargent currently has 10 homes from home, which are places where families can stay when they're visiting children undergoing cancer treatment.

This will be the first one in the north of England.
