Many donations that come to Acorns Children’s Hospice are made in memory of a loved one, perhaps in lieu of flowers at a funeral, or simply to remember a birthday or anniversary of someone who has passed away.
Donations made in memory are a very poignant way to remember someone special, while also helping to raise money for 640 local children with life limiting or life threatening conditions, and their families. It costs £750 to provide a full day of specialist care for a child or young person in one of our three hospices.
“No child should ever have to be in a hospice but unfortunately they do. It must be so hard for the families and from what I’ve seen, Acorns makes it easier for the child and their family. I lost my husband in September and made a donation to Acorns in his memory.”
Katie Hall, an Acorns supporter
