Acorns is a lifeline, so please help us
IN my time as Chief Executive of Acorns Children’s Hospice, every day I meet inspiring staff and volunteers who are dedicated to making every day count for the children and young people in our care and their families.
As children’s hospices take centre stage this week for national Children’s Hospice Week ( May 21- 27), I am proud to lead an organisation that is celebrating 30 years of world class care.
We know that there is still so much unmet need out there in our communities. More children and families than ever before are accessing Acorns’ specialist services, including those in Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
But to reach more of those in need we require your help. Children’s Hospice Week is the perfect time to think about how you can make a difference to babies, children and young people with life- limiting and life- threatening conditions at your local hospice.
Simply visit our website – acorns. org. uk – and find out more about the incredible and varied work that we do across the region.
Become a supporter, donate to us, take part in an event such as Bubble Rush, which is taking place on June 30, or follow us on social media to help us spread the word.
For many families Acorns is the only place that they can turn to for the support that they may need – whether it is a safe and happy place for their child to visit and stay or the emotional and practical support from our Family Team and support groups.
For them, Acorns is a lifeline. Please support us in our valuable work for these families. Toby Porter, Chief Executive, Acorns Children’s Hospice
