Bring a bag appeal

Involve everyone at your workplace, school, college or social clubs in a 'Bring a Bag' collection. Organising a 'Bring a Bag' collection is a simple and successful way to get people involved in supporting their local children's hospice. Ask everyone who is able to take part to fill a bag with items for our shops, bring them in to a designated collection point and our Retail Team can arrange for them to be collected by one of our drivers at a scheduled time*. *To ensure the collection is viable we do require a minimum of 30 bags please. Items donated in this way can be sold in our chain of shops to help fund Acorns vital work with local children who are life limited and life threatened. 60 collection bags of good quality donated items can raise enough money to cover the cost of a full days care for a child at one of our hospices. We can also accept donations of worn and torn items which can be sold on to 'rag merchants' to recycle. Find out more about the types of donated items we can accept. Companies - get involved by asking your workforce to take part in a Bring a Bag to Work collection and generate some positive PR about your support for Acorns.  Our Retail Team can support you by supplying the collection bags, providing information about the charity's work and arranging for the collection bags to be collected once they have been filled. Schools and colleges - alongside supplying the bags and arranging for them to be collected, we can arrange assembly talks to support a Bring a Bag to School collection and help inform pupils about our work in their local community. Social clubs and groups - for a different way for your group to support their local children's hospice, why not contact our Retail Team to organise a Bring a Bag collection? By asking your club or group members to take part, they can ensure that any unwanted items they might have are put to good use to raise much needed funds for Acorns whilst helping to reduce the amount of waste reaching landfill sites.
