A stunning limited-edition dandelion sculpture is the poignant symbol behind a new charity appeal from Acorns Children’s Hospice, that’s capturing the hearts of people across the West Midlands.
The bespoke handmade ornaments represent Acorns care and support for local families during the darkest of times and are being made available as part of the charity’s summer campaign, the Acorns Dandelion Appeal.
The Appeal invites loved ones, friends and supporters to remember someone special by dedicating one of these exclusive sculptures in their memory, and in doing so help the charity’s specialist care teams continue to be there when the unimaginable happens and a parent loses their child.
Dedications of support
Over 270 dandelions have been dedicated since the campaign launched last week. With limited numbers available, people are being urged to get theirs now and make a meaningful difference as they remember their loved ones.
Jo Flemming, Acorns Interim Director of Care, said: “Losing a child is one of the hardest things a parent will ever go through. Acorns Dandelion Appeal is dedicated to raising money to help us continue to be there for those families when the unimaginable happens.
