Acorns Thank You Week 2022

Monday 23rd to Sunday 29th May 2022

During Acorns Thank You week we are taking the opportunity to express our deep gratitude to you, our amazing supporters and to say a huge THANK YOU!

No matter who or where you are, whether you have donated money, taken part in fundraising events, shopped in or donated to our retail stores, volunteered your time, or have helped in raising awareness of our cause – thank you!

Because of you, Acorns can be there for any child or family that needs our vital love, care and support. Children just like Yusuf, Lily-Mai, and Esme.

“If we didn’t have Acorns as part of our lives at that time, circumstances would have been very different. They were literally our family, our support network, and still are to this day.”
Lily-Mai’s mum, Liz
“Esme’s big brothers and sister had a huge amount of adapting to do. At Acorns they found a place with the expertise and professionals who understood what they were going through. Jacob, Rian and Alivia were able to access the Sibling Support Service at Acorns. It made a huge difference.”
Esme’s mum, Jenna 
“Yusuf loves it at Acorns and seeing him smile and do things he couldn’t at home just makes me so happy. It may sound small but doing things together and filling his day with fun means the world to me.”
Yusuf’s mum, Iram
