Acorns Tribute Funds

Daisy Chain Tribute Fund

A Daisy Chain tribute fund is a very special way to remember a child who has used Acorns services. Find out how you and your family can create your own memorial page and raise funds in your child’s honour.

Oak Leaf Tribute Fund

Oak Leaf Tribute Funds can be set up by anyone who wishes to remember their loved one and support Acorns Children’s Hospice. You don’t have to have known anyone who has been cared for by Acorns. It may be that your loved one’s favourite charity was Acorns, or you’d like to support a local charity in your loved one’s honour.

When the value of your fund reaches £250 we will send you an oak tree sapling to plant as you wish as a lasting reminder of your loved one. As the sapling grows it will embody the growing and strengthening support that the Oak Leaf Tribute Fund provides Acorns Children’s Hospice.

  • Donating to remember a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary
  • Collection at a funeral or remembrance service
  • Setting up a regular gift

John’s story

John and his partner John were together for 43 years and, in John’s words,

“built many happy memories full of laughter.”

They never had any children of their own, but John spent most of his life working with children. John explains why his Oak Leaf Tribute Fund is important to him.

“I found out about their Oak Leaf Tribute Funds, and I knew it would be the perfect thing for John. It would continue something he cared about. I set up the Fund and the money from his funeral was the first thing to be added to it.

“Over the years I have added to it here and there. Friends and family will contribute too. At Christmas they may donate to his Fund instead of the gift they would have given.

It’s as if he’s still continuing to support a cause which meant so much to him.”
