Bottles Needed As Walsall Children’s Hospice Gears Up For Garden Fete

Acorns staff, Tanya Fellows, Louise Meehan and Carisa Coley prepare for the fete.

Excitement is building for this year’s Spring Fete at Acorns Children’s Hospice in Walsall and the charity is appealing to members of the public for help.

Donations of unwanted gifts and bottles are needed for the family-fun event on Saturday 29 April, which is being held to raise vital funds for local life limited and life threatened children and young people. Carisa Coley from the fundraising team at Acorns for the Black Country, based in Walsall said:

“We’re really looking forward to the fete which will be a fantastic day out for all ages but we really need donations. If anyone has any unopened alcoholic or non-alcoholic bottles for our bottle stall please get in touch!

"From shampoo to champagne, bubble bath to Bacardi we will happily use them on our bottle stall.”

The fete will take place between 1pm and 4pm and will be held in the hospice gardens on Walstead Road. The day will feature fun and games, a photo booth, a range of stalls and even the chance to meet donkeys and alpacas. Carisa added:

“With lots going on, it’s the perfect event to bring friends and family. Refreshments will be available and all money raised will go towards the care of local children and support for their families at Acorns.”

Acorns offers a network of specialist palliative care and support for babies, children and young people across the Midlands. The charity relies heavily on fundraising to continue providing its services, which costs nearly £10 million every year. For any donations, please contact Carisa Coley on or call 01922 422508.
