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


Acorns Children’s Hospice has been named Charity of the Year for 2024 by the Team following an internal selection process, a decision since it was launched back in 2022 that has been met with great enthusiasm.

The charity is renowned for its specialised palliative care services for local children and families, offering various forms of support, including respite care, therapy, and bereavement assistance.

Vicki Bennett, West Midlands Metro Customer Service Manager commented, “Last year we raised an impressive £763 for MacMillan Cancer Support through various fundraising activities.”

“In the past three years, we’ve focused our efforts on one charity a year chosen by a vote among all colleagues. This year all fundraising events will benefit Acorns’ invaluable care and services for children and their families.”

In the West Midlands alone, Acorns Children’s Hospice has delivered specialised care to more than 750 children and supported 1,000 families to create long-lasting memories.

Rich Burke, Partnerships Fundraising Manager for Acorn’s Children’s Hospice, expressing gratitude for the recognition commented, “We are deeply honoured to be chosen as West Midlands Metro Charity of the Year for 2024. This partnership embodies the spirit of community and underscores the importance of collective support in our mission to provide comfort and care to children and families in the West Midlands during challenging times. I’m looking forward to collaborating with the team at Metro to raise awareness and to support the fundraising activities.”

Thank you for supporting our fundraising.
