Mr Morgan, founder and chairman of Redrow Homes and The Morgan Foundation, said:
“There’s no denying the important social contribution that All Together NOW! is making. It is an excellent newspaper which provides news and information that so many people who are affected by disability and ill health just can’t get anywhere else.”
Mr Morgan added: “We are proud to be a long standing supporter of the newspaper and wish it every success.
“One of our fully branded Smiley Vans will bring many benefits.”
“Apart from making it easier to distribute the paper it will raise awareness about the charity and will, hopefully, attract even more supporters.”
More than 100,000 copies of the bi-monthly newspaper are now being distributed to about 500 venues across the North West – with more than 50,000 copies going into Merseyside’s supermarkets and health centres.
The Morgan Foundation are one of All Together NOW’s key partners.
The charity’s founder and editor, Tom Dowling, said: “This new vehicle is a fantastic boost – and is the perfect tenth anniversary present for the newspaper!
“It means we will no longer have to rely on our volunteer drivers using their own vehicles to distribute the 10,000 papers every week to more than 150 locations across the North West, and we will be able to carry more papers on each journey, saving on fuel costs, too.
“The All Together NOW! brand will also now be seen by millions of people across the region.
“I can’t thank The Morgan Foundation and our other partners enough for their fantastic and on-going support. Without it we just wouldn’t be around.”
It’s been a great year for the charity – a year that’s seen Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group and Medicash team up with the newspaper.
All Together NOW!’s other partners include the Bank Workers Charity, Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group, Liverpool Community Health Trust, Park Group, and United Utilities.
