Morrisons & CLIC Sargent

A trio of teenagers have helped design a bag to raise funds for the cancer charity that supported them through their own treatment for disease. Amber Haney, Enna Stephens and Sam Brown (main image) helped create the artwork for the CLIC Sargent canvas bag that were sold at Morrisons stores across the country to mark World Cancer Day on Monday 4 February. An initial 50,000 bags went on sale for £3, with a 20% donation per bag going to CLIC Sargent. The teenagers were invited to a design day at Morrisons’ head office in Bradford by bag manufacturers the Solent Group. Design elements created by each child were combined in the final artwork on the environmentally-friendly jute and cotton bags. The children also suggested the words used in the design.

The 12-item collection launched in British Heart Foundation shops across the country on 15 January.
