HAVING trouble making room for all those Christmas gifts? Acorns Children’s Hospice is appealing for people to donate any unwanted presents to their shops to help local families.
Acorns is appealing for seasonal supporters to help refresh stock at the charity’s Solihull, Shirley and Knowle shops by donating unwanted Christmas presents.
Gary Pettit, director of retail at Acorns, said: “Don’t let your unwanted presents gather dust, give them a new lease of life by donating them to your local Acorns shop and show your support for local children and families across Solihull.”
Acorns needs around £30,000 each day to provide its care and support services, with the charity’s network of over 45 shops across the West Midlands playing a key part in helping to raise those funds.
The Acorns shops in Solihull are in Knowle, in St John’s Way, and in Shirley on the Stratford Road.
“There’s no time like the ‘present’ to declutter your home and get into the spirit of giving by making those holiday leftovers count,” said Gary.
“You might even need to clear space on your shelves or in your wardrobe for the presents you love.
“So why not donate your preloved items too? You’ll be helping us be there for families when they need us most.”
Acorns Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions and support for their families.
In the past year, the charity has cared for more than 750 children across Birmingham and the wider West Midlands, and almost 1,000 families, including those who are bereaved.
Anyone who would like to donate their unwanted Christmas presents can take them to their local Acorns shop.
