MORRISONS Skipton has given away hundreds of paper chain links in the lead-up to the Platinum Jubilee in a nationwide initiative to spread a million messages of hope across communities.

Morrisons Community Champions have partnered with schools, charities, and community groups to gather messages of hope and celebration, and to decorate the paper chain links. The paper chains will be donated to community hubs, schools and care homes to be used as Jubilee decorations, and displayed in Morrisons stores.

Morrisons Skipton will be celebrating: A Hero - A local who goes above and beyond to help others. An Organisation - A charity or community that does outstanding things. The People’s Choice - Someone who has been nominated by the community for their work in the local area. An Eco Warrior - Someone who is supporting their local environment.

Customers can share their nominations for the People’s Choice award, on the Morrisons Skipton Facebook page. Entries close at midnight on May 29. Winners will be contacted the following week.

Clare Reed, Community Champion for Skipton Morrisons, said: “It has been a challenging year for many people in the UK and we want to help spread hope and positivity amongst our customers and communities."
