Acorns Launches FREE House Collection Service

 

It’s sofa so-good as Acorns Children’s Hospice launches a FREE house collection service.

 

Anyone looking to give their unwanted furniture a new home can benefit from the brand new service which offers to pick up goods completely free of charge.

 

By donating top-quality items householders will be helping to raise vital funds to support local children with life limiting and life threatening conditions as the goods will be sold in Acorns furniture shops.

 

Debbie Foy, Acorns House Collections Manager, said: “Our new house collection service is a fuss free way to donate your unwanted furniture and help raise money for local children and families. Our shops offer a range of high-quality large and small home items from sofas and dining tables to lamps and furnishings at great bargain prices. ”

 

House collections can be arranged between 9am and 3.30pm, Monday to Friday, with limited availability on weekends and out of hours.

 

Acorns is also offering a new house clearance service, which includes clearing a house of items and cleaning the house ready for sale, and is quoted on an individual basis.

 

Debbie added: “We understand that house clearances can happen at a very difficult time and our staff will always be very respectful of that. This service aims to make it what could be an incredibly hard step for families and loved ones as simple as possible.”

 

Acorns furniture shops at Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre, Birmingham; Pershore, Worcestershire; and Becketts Farm, Wythall raise money towards the £10 million per year the charity needs to continue proving vital care for life limited and life threatened children and support for their families.

 

Donating good quality items is a quick way to support Acorns and all profits made go back to the charity.

Notes to editors:

  • Due to the sensitive nature of Acorns care services it refrains from using the words ‘terminal’ or ‘terminally ill’ in its press releases and public communications when describing the children who use Acorns and the conditions that they have. Instead, Acorns uses the words ‘life limited’, ‘life limiting’, or ‘life threatening’. Acorns kindly requests that you respect this in your communications when referring to Acorns Children’s Hospice. Acorns children have a lot of living to do. Thank you.
