Make your unwanted presents the gifts that keep on giving

You can make your unwanted presents the gifts that keep on giving by donating them to Acorns Children’s Hospice.

The charity is appealing for people to help refresh stock at their Black Country shops by regifting their unwanted presents.

In doing so, supporters will be helping Acorns continue its vital care for children with life limiting and life threatening conditions across the Black Country and wider West Midlands. Gary Pettit, Director of Retail at Acorns, said: 

“Don’t let your unwanted presents gather dust, give them a new lease of life by donating them to your local Acorns shop and show your support for local children and families.”

Acorns needs around £30,000 each day to provide its care and support services, with the charity’s network of over 45 shops across the West Midlands playing a key part in helping to raise those funds.

Acorns shops in the Black Country include: 

• Aldridge, The Square
• Bilston, Church Street 
• Blackheath, High Street 
• Bloxwich, High Street 
• Codsall, Wolverhampton Road 
• Dudley, High Street 
• Halesowen, High Street 
• Kingswinford, Market Street 
• Perton, Perton District Shopping Centre 
• Walsall, Victorian Arcade 
• Wednesday, Union Street 

Gary added: “There’s no time like the ‘present’ to declutter your home and get into the spirit of giving by making those holiday leftovers count. That board game you’re bored of, that extra pair of socks could make a real difference.

“You might even need to clear space on your shelves or in your wardrobe for the presents you love. So why not donate your preloved items too? You’ll be helping us be there for families when they need us most. Together, we are stronger.”

Acorns Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions and support for their families. 

In the past year, the charity has cared for more than 750 children across Birmingham and the wider West Midlands, and almost 1,000 families, including those who are bereaved.

Anyone who would like to donate their unwanted Christmas presents can take them to their local Acorns shop.
