ACORNS CHILDREN’S HOSPICE ANNUAL GARDEN PARTY
The Acorns Hospice Garden Fete took place in September, and despite a wet start, a splendid day was enjoyed by all concerned. You may recall that last year, the first cheque for £10,000 was handed over as a result of the PGM’s Famous Five initiative to the Acorns Children’s Hospice HQ in Wythall, Birmingham.
This year, the opportunity was taken to donate a further £10,000 from the Famous Five on the day of the Garden Party. John Hayward, Provincial Charity Steward handed the cheque to David Strudley, Chief Executive, in front of a large gathering during his address to all present. Amongst the numerous stalls in operation on the day was a burger stand – the burgers and onions were provided by the Province, with the buns being provided by Simon Beckett of Beckett’s Egg Farm, and were greatly appreciated.
There is a summary of the event on the acorns website – click this link. Other details can be found on the Acorns facebook pages.
