Young football fans scored a victory on Thursday (27 July) as stars from Walsall FC paid a special visit to Acorns Children’s Hospice in the Black Country.
Head Coach Mat Sadler, team Captain Donervon Daniels and Goalkeeper Owen Evans took a break from training to spend time with children, families, staff and volunteers at the hospice in Walstead Road.
The good sports took part in football-themed games and crafts and enjoyed tasty cupcakes iced in Walsall FC’s red and white colours.
Another season of support
The visit also celebrated yet another year of support for Acorns as one of the Club’s official charity partners, with over £7,000 raised during this season towards Acorns and its care for children with life limiting and life threatening conditions.
Walsall FC Head Coach Mat Sadler said: “Acorns plays such a vital role in our community and we want to continue to support them and grow our connection with the hospice. We want to show them just how much they mean to us as our official charity partners by doing all we can to enhance our already strong relationship with everyone here.
This season’s fundraising success marks four years of Club and fan support for Acorns in the Black Country and the 200 children and families who rely on its care each year.
