We’re raising £20,000 to assist ACORNS CHILDRENS HOSPICE with the fantastic work they do.

Their dedicated teams provide specialist palliative care for life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people, and support for their families.

This support is offered from Acorns three hospices, based in Worcester, Birmingham and Walsall, and in the community. Acorns hospices provide a home-from-home environment where children take part in a range of fun and therapeutic activities, from arts and crafts sessions to hydrotherapy. Children visit Acorns for respite, short breaks, end of life and emergency care.

Their health and social care professionals provide a range of services, including bereavement support and advocacy, as well as a number of dedicated support groups, helping to reduce the isolation some families can face.  See our Events and News pages for details of how Abacus Wealth Services will be raising funds for this important charity.

Why Acorns is our happy place…

Sophia Marshall is a little miracle. At two days old, she suffered a cardiac arrest in her father’s arms. For dad Samuel and mum Chantelle it was truly terrifying, and the first six months of their baby girl’s life was then spent in hospital.

“We had a really scary start with Sophia. We didn’t really know what was happening. We were panicked. The cardiac arrest starved her of oxygen and caused eight brain bleeds, so she was classed as severely brain damaged.” Sophia’s mum Chantelle explains.

“The doctors discovered that Sophia had 11 heart defects, which is what caused the cardiac arrest. They also found out that she has epilepsy and a condition called heterotaxy. This means that although she has all her organs they aren’t in the right place, so this causes lots of complications.”
