More time on your hands – why not give 12 hours to Acorns

Have you got time to spare? Don’t let it go to waste, why not put some to good use for Acorns! 

We’ve all got a little bit more time on our hands. One way to help beat the boredom during isolation is to join ‘12 hours for Acorns‘. Every penny you raise will help us continue our work caring for some of the most vulnerable children and families caught up in the coronavirus pandemic.

The challenge can be anything you can think of! How about a bikeathon (on your exercise bike), a sponsored silence or knitting or reading continuously for 12 hours? You could even give up the Wi-Fi or tablet for 12 hours. The possibilities are endless! You can choose to complete the 12 hours in one go or spread them over a few days, simply set up a fundraising page and log the hours you complete.

You’ll be in good company too.

Signed up so far is Acorns Vice President Duncan Mathieson who will be cycling for 12 hours. Also taking on the challenge is super fundraiser James Wright, who is live-streaming a 12-hour run around his back garden. And joining Duncan, aiming to pedal to victory is Acorns Young Ambassador Luke Corbet.
