Acorns Charity at the Wigwam Show

Recommended Posts

Image.aspx?c=53

With a couple of days till the show I wanted to draw attention to Acorns charity which has kindly sponsored the showguide this year.

Established in 1988, Acorns Children's Hospice Trust is a registered charity offering a network of care for life limited and life threatened children and young people, and their families, across the heart of England. These children and young people are not expected to reach adulthood and require specialist care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In the last year Acorns has supported over 760 children and more than 980 families, including those who are bereaved.

Acorns is the only organisation that provides this level of care to these vulnerable youngsters whilst offering a range of support services to the whole family to help them cope at every stage of their child's life and beyond into bereavement.

They provide tailored nursing care for each child; short breaks, emergency and end of life care at each of our three hospices:

• Acorns in Birmingham based at Selly Oak

• Acorns in the Black Country based at Walsall

• Acorns for the Three Counties based at Worcester

Acorns relies on the community to fund the majority of its activities.

For more information please visit www.acorns.org.uk

How you can help

Information about Acorns and the work they do will be available in the Simpson Room, where donations will be gratefully recieved.

I hope we will also have room at the reception table for a flyer and collection bucket

I have a large number of cardboard collection boxes so if anyone else would like to join in and have these in your rooms that would be smashing

Hope you will join me in supporting a terrific charity as well as enjoying music and hifi.

Thanks Wayne,

Guys, The sponsorship, is not about Acorns paying for our show guide. It's about Wayne helping pay for the production of the show guide. In return we hope that by raising awareness more money will be donated to acorns by all of you!

There will be a voluntary £1.00 suggested donation to Acorns for each guide. We hope you will also visit the Simpson room and donate further to this amazing charity.

Arrived back and now pondering lugging the gear out of the car...

A very big heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped and contributed today.

Special mention to James and Dom (sorry if I missed anyone else when I wasn't there) 'on the door', who drummed up lots of cash from contributions from the showguide.

Special mention to Evolution Audio - yer know, Paul and Sam, and to Loo, who took and made contributions.

Special thanks to khapahk (Bob), who shared proceeds from the badges - just a fabulous gesture, thanks mate.

Thanks to everyone who also kindly donated in my room or where-ever.

I'll be handing in the various proceeds tomorrow and will come back and confirm the total. For now thank you, you're all warm and generous folk, bless you all.
