Help us be stronger together for local families this holiday season. You are the vital link we need to help us create memories that a life limited child will treasure forever.

This Christmas, we invite you to be a part of something truly special. Our holiday appeal is all about recognising incredible individuals like you as a vital link in the chain that ensures families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition never face their journey alone.

Check out all that’s going on this Christmas at Acorns below and see how you can get involved.

Celebrate your star tree

Celebrate your star

Christmas is a special time; a chance to make new memories as well as take time to remember those who are loved and missed. Celebrate Your Star is the perfect gift for remembering a loved one.

This holiday, you can donate to Celebrate Your Star and two stars will be created in your loved one’s name. One will be hung on the Christmas tree at your nearest Acorns Children’s Hospice, and the other will be sent to you to hang in pride of place at home.

We would love you to join us at one of our three Celebrate Your Star events to view our lovely stars of Remembrance. Together we will celebrate every star remembered at Acorns this Christmas while looking ahead to the festive season.
