Trusts and foundations
A big thank you to all the trusts and foundations that have supported Acorns Children’s Hospice.
Without your donations, the vital care and support we provide to children and young people with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families would be compromised.
Just some of the items that we need to provide Acorns invaluable services to our children and families include:
- Hospice running costs
- Medical disposables and medication
- Nursing care
- Group work
- Outings and activities
- Bereavement support
Black Country charities on cloud 9 with donations
During December 2015 the Tipton and Coseley Building Society staff awarded cheques to nine local charities.
The Society’s Charitable Foundation has presented cheques collectively worth £5,300 to a number of locally-based good causes, including Acorns Children’s Hospice.
John Miller, general manager and secretary at the Tipton and Coseley Building Society said the Charitable Foundation strives to donate as much as possible to worthy good causes. He comments: “It’s always a pleasure to donate cash to local charities and even more so at this time of year.”
John Martin's Charity
Trustees of John Martin’s Charity came to visit Acorns in the Three Counties, to see how their support has benefited the children and young people we care for. Their continued support has made a huge difference to our work.
John Daniels, Clerk to the Trustees from the Charity said: “It was a humbling experience to see how Acorns supports children and families at their greatest time of need and how our grant assists towards the cost of specialist nursing care to those from Evesham and the surrounding area.”
Thank you lunch
One of the benefits of supporting us through a Trust is that you will be invited to an annual thank you lunch, where you can hear first-hand from Acorns families and Acorns nursing staff about the difference your support makes.
