Toy donations needed at Acorns Hospice shops

Sarah Mason 7th Nov, 2019

ACORNS Children’s Hospice is appealing for toy donations to make sure its Solihull shops are fully stocked in the run up to the festive season.

The charity, which cares for sick children and supports their families, needs £27,000 per day to provide services across the West Midlands.

But in order to pull in the pounds, the shelves need to be full – and that’s where Solihull residents are being called on to help.

Gary Pettit, head of retail and retail operations at Acorns, said: “Our shop managers are telling us that now is the perfect time to have a good clear out and help us keep our shops fully stocked in the run up to Christmas.

“The festive period is a really busy time for us as people start to shop for toys to give as presents and we want to make sure our shelves are brimming with the best bargain buys and stocking fillers.”

Anyone who would like to donate toys can take them along to the Station Road shop in Solihull or the Stratford Road shop in Shirley.
