Take part in an event

By taking part in one of our exciting events you’ll be doing something truly amazing.

Not only will you help raise funds to support our vital care, but you’ll also play an important role in spreading awareness of the work we do. From charity walks and bike rides, to adrenaline-filled skydives, fire walks and overseas treks, we have lots of fun-packed events for you to get involved with.

Whatever you choose to do, please know that every pound you raise or give will enable children and families across the West Midlands to receive the care and support they need.

To help inspire you, here are a few recent examples of some of the amazing support Acorns has received from people just like you…

Octogenarian Trio of fundraisers

Making their miles count

Meet David Burman, Robbin Suffield and Jeff Masters. The Octogenarian Trio from Henley-in-Arden Rotary Club walked their age in miles!

This intrepid group was inspired to come up with a challenge when their usual fundraising activities were curtailed due to the pandemic. Raising money for their local hospices (including Acorns), their dedicated efforts prove that no matter your age, there’s a challenge or activity out there for everyone.

Braving new heights

For the adrenaline junkies out there, keen to tick an item off their bucket list, look no further than our unforgettable charity skydive. Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – freefalling through the air at over 120mph!

Lily was inspired to do exactly this and take the plunge for Acorns after visiting her local hospice and seeing first-hand the vital work we do.

Foam-tastic fundraising

If you’re looking for some family fun, then events like Bubble Rush are ideal. Back in July, over 450 friends and families flocked together to run, walk and dance their way through a flurry of foam at this popular, family-friendly event.

Our amazing ‘bubblers’ took on brightly-coloured bubble cannons and a sea of foam on the 5km route around Walsall Arboretum.

Who knew raising vital funds for Acorns could be so much fun?
