Solihull shoppers challenge to join the 're-loved revolution' and help raise funds

Solihull Editorial 17th Sep, 2023   0

SOLIHULL shoppers are being challenged to look good, do good and feel good and join the re-loved revolution this September to help sick children and their families.

Acorns Children’s Hospice is calling on residents to start their journey to sustainable fashion by making second-hand their first choice at the charity’s shops in the borough.

In making the shift to thoughtful thrifting, shoppers will be helping Acorns to continue its care for children with life limiting or life threatening conditions and their families.

The Children’s charity has over 40 shops on high streets across the West Midlands, packed with high quality, pre-loved ladieswear, menswear, children’s clothes, shoes and accessories including on St John’s Way in Knowle and on Stratford Road in Shirley.

Gary Pettit, Acorns director of retail, said: “Only with the community’s support can we be stronger together and continue to provide our hospice care, which is why making shopping second hand at Acorns your first choice is so important.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to look good, feel good, do good. So whether you’re after something like a cosy coat for the colder months, a new pair of heels for a night out, or you’re thinking of reinventing your style, why not browse the bargains at your local Acorns shop.”

In the past year, the charity has cared for more than 700 children and almost 1,000 families, including those who are bereaved.

Acorns needs £27,000 each day to provide its children’s hospice care, with two-thirds of these funds coming from the local community and shoppers buying and donating items at the charity’s shops.
