Acorns children’s hospice benefits from KFC donation

Solihull Editorial 4th Oct, 2017   0

CHILDREN and families from across the region are set to benefit thanks to a donation of £131,000 from KFC to Acorns Children’s Hospice.

The donation comes thanks to KFC’s Add Hope Foundation and the activities of staff at KFC branches across the Midlands who encouraged customers to purchase fundraising scratch cards.

Proceeds from the scratch cards will go towards the nearly £10 million Acorns has to raise each year to continue it’s vital care for children and their families in their hour of need.

Amanda Smallman, senior manager, corporate and community fundraising at Acorns, said: “We are so happy to receive this significant donation.

“At Acorns, we rely on fundraising and donations from organisations like KFC’s Add Hope for the majority of the income needed to provide our services.

“The donation will make a huge difference to people’s lives by helping us provide nursing care for children and young people and vital support for their families.”

Acorns offers a network of specialist care for children and support for their families across the West Midlands.

In the past year the charity has cared for more than 870 children and more than 1,090 families, including those who are bereaved.
