Aston Villa & Acorns in partnership

Since Aston Villa FC announced a ground-breaking partnership with Acorns Children's Hospice in 2006, this special relationship has gone from strength to strength as their recent activity demonstrates. 

Villa have been Acorns children's heroes by initially providing a financial donation to cover the urgent costs of 77 days hospice care to keep beds open at Selly Oak hospice. Over the past few years, Villa players have also taken the time to visit the children and families who use Acorns, bringing smiles to their faces and those of our hard working staff. Most memorable for all was when Villa became the first Premier League club to forego a main shirt sponsor fee and place a charity name on its shirts for free.

Sunday 23rd March 2014

Aston Villa has announced that this year’s Acorns Day – a major fundraiser for us as the Club’s official charity partner - will be held during the home game visit of Stoke on Sunday March 23.

Last year’s Acorns Day set its sights at raising £50,000 and exceeded this target, raising a whopping £93,000. This year the club have set an increased fundraising target of £100,000 to help Acorns launch its new growth strategy to reach 50% more children and families over the next 4 years and its associated campaign – Branching Out
