Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre is delighted to announce that our chosen partnering charity is the Acorns Children's Hospice. The centre is aiming to raise £10,000+ via multiple in-centre activities and events throughout 2017.
The Acorns Children's Hospice require £10 million pounds each year to keep their three Children’s hospices running in Birmingham and Warwickshire, Worcester and Walsall, with only one third of this being provided through statutory funding. Therefore the hospice rely heavily on fundraising activities and the generosity of the public.
All of the children, who come to the hospice from birth to 18 years of age have life limiting conditions. The hospice not only care for the ill children, but also provide much needed support for their parents, siblings and grandparents.
Acorns help the whole family all within wonderful surroundings with no uniforms, allowing children and parents to see it as a home from home to make great memories together.
A large column has been installed in the Upper West Mall, here we will record when we reach each fundraising milestone, to keep you up to date with our progress throughout the year!
If you would like to help us reach our target, please donate whatever you can afford (no amount is too small!) via our Just Giving page by clicking DONATE.
