ACORNS Children's Hospice is urging people to step up at Christmas and support its vital care for local life limited and life threatened children in Worcestershire. 

At Christmas time Acorns becomes a very special and magical place with decorations and fun activities which makes this a very memorable time for Acorns children and their families. 

Acorns’ families receive care free of charge, but most of the funds have to be raised from the local community so everyone needs to get involved.

People can pick up a bargain at an Acorns’ shops, some which have postboxes for Santa in them; buy a gift at Acorns’ online shop; organise fundraising support in the community or workplace; sign up for a new year challenge; make a one-off donation or start giving regularly.
