Meanwhile AVFC staff will be fundraising, with cake sales, sports challenges, and donations.
There will also be a limited edition match day programme and Associate match sponsor for this fixture, Beaver Metals, will also make a donation for every goal scored during the game!
An Acorns family joined us at the launch of Acorns Day and are keen for people to support what is set to be a brilliant event.
Matt and Natalie Greaves are parents to Megan, Bethany and Jessica. 12 year old Jessica has cerebral palsy and quadriplegic spasticity which means she has to permanently use a wheelchair and is dependent on others for many of her daily needs. The family has been using the services of Acorns Children’s Hospice for the last four years, including respite and group support.
Matt explains: “Acorns give us the opportunity as a family to a have a break from the strains and stresses of everyday life, as well as providing Jessica with the essential stimulation she needs to develop and grow as a person in her own right.
“It’s so important that Acorns gets the funding it needs to keep running and supporting families like ours. We’re excited to be fronting this year’s Acorns Day and hope it’ll be the biggest success to date.”
