Our CEO, Trevor Johnson, spoke to the Express & Star recently about Acorns, the challenges the charity has faced and our plans for the future. Read on to hear what he had to say.
Before I stepped into the role of Chief Executive at Acorns Children’s Hospice – where I’ve been now for about five months – I knew all about this charity and its work.
I’m from a hospice background, so I’m very familiar with these vital organisations.
Now that I’m actually here, and I’ve had the chance to meet the incredible teams and some of the many local children and their families we care for – the reality is beyond my expectations.
The difference our wonderful employees and volunteers make at Acorns is awe-inspiring. Every single day, committed and passionate teams pour their hearts into everything they do, touching countless lives. The many stories I’ve heard, of local families supported in their hour-of-need is humbling.
