Acorns Children's Hospice Trust

We offer a network of care to life limited & life threatened children

Charity Registration No. 700859


127 miles, seven days, two men...and one canoe!

On 15 October, we'll be zipping up our life jackets and picking up our paddles to undertake a gruelling seven-day canoeing expedition along a 127-mile stretch of Britain's longest river, the Severn.

We're doing it to raise money for MITIE's regional charity, Acorns Children's Hospice in Birmingham, and after weeks of training we're really up for the challenge!

To make it all worth while, we're asking our suppliers, customers and contacts for their support through donations. All our equipment has either been bought or donated, so the cash we raise will go directly to Acorns. Acorns relies solely on donations, and it costs £4,500 to run each hospice for a day, so every donation will make a big difference.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor us: Acorns Children's Hospice Trust gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please sponsor us now: together, we can make a huge splash for charity!

Colin and Stan
