‘Make your extra day count and help us ensure lifeline care for local families never stops!’ – That’s the passionate plea from Acorns Children’s Hospice this Leap Year.
The charity is calling on the public to help it fund an additional day of care for children with life limiting and life threatening conditions this February 29.
It costs around £30,000 a day to run Acorns three hospices and provide its vital care and support. To help cover the cost of providing its services this Leap Day, the charity has launched a special appeal.
There are many ways you can support Acorns in the countdown to Leap Day, from running for Acorns at Birmingham Running Festival and making a direct donation, to creating your own fundraiser or supporting Acorns at work.
