Acorns Room To Grow Appeal Updates

‘Help us create a Black Country children’s hospice for the future’

Total raised so far:

We are thrilled to announce that work has now begun on the major refurbishment of our Black Country hospice in Walsall, thanks to the generosity of the local community.

As of Sunday 1st May 2022, our Walsall hospice has temporarily closed to allow phase-one of the refurbishment to commence. The work is being funded thanks to the early donations to the Room to Grow Appeal, launched in February.

Rooms and corridors in the Black Country hospice have now been stripped ready to be upgraded as we get set to modernise the spaces where children and families spend precious time.

In just a few weeks, kind donations from the community have raised over £100,000 towards the refurbishment, which is designed to modernise the spaces at the hospice where hundreds of local children spend precious time every year.

Emma Aspinall, Acorns Director of Care, said: “This is a significant development in the project to bring our Walsall hospice up to date for local families. We’re so thankful to the many people who have donated to our appeal so far, giving us the confidence to begin these works in the knowledge that the local community is well on the way to helping us reach the finish line.”

The Acorns Room to Grow Appeal aims to raise £750,000 towards these much-needed improvements to help us create a Black Country hospice for the future.
