Acorns Childrens Hospice Opens Retail Donations Centre In Halesowen

A children’s charity has officially unveiled a retail donation centre in Halesowen to support its network of over 50 shops.

Acorns Children’s Hospice, which provides specialist palliative care to life limited and life threatened children and young people across the Midlands, has opened the centre on Mucklow Hill Trading Estate.

The unit will see over 2,000 bags a week pass through its doors before they are sorted and distributed to the network of Acorns shops across the region.

The network of shops raises around £1.5million per year, which helps to meet the running costs of the hospices, which stands at nearly £10 million per year.

Kevin Ives, Head of Retail at Acorns, said: “It’s all about getting the right product in the right shop at the right time. This centre will ensure that we continue to operate a fully efficient and well-oiled retail machine, which in turn helps us raise the funds we need to help give children and their families invaluable support.”

Donating good quality items including clothing, shoes, toys, books, CDs and DVDs and household goods is a quick way to support Acorns and all profits made go directly back to the charity.
