Acorns and Aston Villa in partnership
Acorns and Villa 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.
