Staff at a Lichfield shop have handed over £1,000 to the Acorns Children’s Hospice.

The money came from the Vodafone Community Connection Award after the charity was nominated by staff at the phone company’s branch in the Three Spires Shopping Centre.

The Acorns Children’s Hospice was set up in 1988 to provide care for children with life limiting or life threatening conditions.
Carisa Coley, community fundraising administrator at Acorns, said: “We are absolutely delighted and look forward to ensuring the award makes a real difference to those children and families that use our hospice.

“Acorns relies on donations for the majority of our funding, so this money is a big help and vital to ensuring we can continue to support life limited children and their families right across Lichfield and the Black Country.”

Emma Willingham, Vodafone Store Manager, in Lichfield said staff were pleased to back a local good cause.

“There is nothing more rewarding than being able to help a worthy charity,” she said. “It’s amazing that we’re able to make a difference and give hope to the children and their families.”
