AvailableCar are delighted to announce that they will be supporting Acorns Children’s Hospice as their chosen charity for the AvailableCar Cannock store in the West Midlands area.
Since May 2009, AvailableCar Limited have supported Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough through their Castle Donington and Sutton in Ashfield Stores and have raised over £300,000 through fund raising events by staff, their family and friends, and by the generous donations of the AvailableCar customers.
And this will continue in Castle Donington and Sutton in Ashfield.
However, because we feel that it is so important to support ‘local’ causes, we’re delighted to announce on the first anniversary of the opening of our third Store in Cannock, that we will be raising funds for Acorns Children’s Hospice, based at three locations in the Midlands.
Established in 1988, Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust is a registered charity offering a network of care for life-limited and life-threatened children and young people, and their families, across the heart of England. These children and young people are not expected to reach adulthood and require specialist care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In the last year, Acorns has supported over 700 children and more than 1,050 families, including those who are bereaved. Acorns is the only organisation in the area that provides this level of care to these vulnerable youngsters while offering a range of support services to the whole family to help them cope at every stage of their child’s life and beyond into bereavement.
Acorns relies on the community to fund the majority of its activities, and that’s where we feel that AvailableCar, its staff, friends, family and customers, can play such a valuable role.
So please, support our efforts on behalf of this hugely worthwhile cause – our Cannock store will be taking on a host of challenges from sky-diving to marathon running, and any help will be much appreciated.
All the best
The AvailableCar Team
