How you can support local life limited and life threatened children.
Many of the babies, children and young people at Acorns Children’s Hospice have complex medical needs that require specialist 24-hour care and support. This is why your support with any charitable donation that you can make is vital in helping us to continue the work that we do.
It costs almost £10 million a year to run our care services in the hospices and community, and we rely heavily on the local community giving to charity to fund the majority of these activities.
Of every £1 spent by Acorns, 88p goes on providing care services.
Every donation to charity or monies raised, large or small, can make a real difference. A single charitable donation, fundraising or setting up your own monthly gift will help ensure we will always be there when families need us, now and in the future.
Every charitable donation makes a difference to the care we provide.
