Daisy Chain Tribute Funds
To open an Acorns Daisy Chain Fund as a lasting reminder of your child, then please visit our Much Loved page.
Daisy Chain Tribute Funds are dedicated to celebrate the life of a child or young person who has been cared for at Acorns.
When you open a Fund you will be sent an oak tree sapling to plant where you wish as a lasting reminder of your child. When your Fund reaches £250 or more, the name of your child will be displayed on our memorial board at the Acorns Memorial Wood.
The Memorial Wood in Arley, Worcestershire is a peaceful, tranquil place, beautifully landscaped and maintained by the R.D. Turner Charitable Trust on our behalf.
“Acorns has helped us massively and when we were told about the tribute fund we thought it would be a lovely thing to do in memory of Isla while also giving something back. The tribute fund is a real inspiration not just for me but the whole family, to thank Acorns for the support given to us."

Growing your Tribute Fund
Acorns Tribute Funds give you the choice to grow your fund how you wish and anyone can contribute. You can use your Fund to:
- Invite donations in lieu of funeral flowers - If your loved one has died recently, you might like to use your Fund to invite donations in place of funeral flowers. You will be able to share the link to the Fund with friends and relatives and they will be able to make online donations and leave special messages in memory. You can also add in any money collected on the day or in the run up to the funeral as an "off-line" donation so that the amount is counted in the total raised by the Fund
- Encourage friends and family to donate and leave messages on special anniversaries
- Organise your own fundraising event, or a series of events, or take part in an Acorns event. You can create a dedicated page for each event to collect donations which you can share with family, friends and work colleagues
You can also add in any cash that you raise as an offline donation so that it counts towards your Acorns Tribute Fund total.
For more information about how to donate in memory please contact Janine Miller on 01564 825017 or firstname.lastname@example.org
