Cheltenham Town Team Up with Local Children’s Hospice

5 September 2018

Cheltenham Town Football Club are delighted to announce a charity partnership with Acorns, Gloucestershire’s local children’s hospice, for the 2018/19 season.

Cheltenham Town Football Club are delighted to announce a charity partnership with Acorns, Gloucestershire’s local children’s hospice, for the 2018/19 season.  

The Robins have chosen Acorns as one of their charities of the year for the 2018/19 season to support the charity’s work providing care to life limited and life threatened children and support for their families. 

In the past year, Acorns, which this year celebrates its 30th Anniversary, is currently caring for more than 60 children and 80 families across Gloucestershire, including those who are bereaved.

Lynne Carter, Head of Fundraising at Acorns, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that the Robins have chosen to support Acorns over the current football season and we’re really looking forward to developing a strong partnership over the coming months.

“The work we do with families across Gloucestershire is absolutely vital, so to have the support of the football club, especially during such a significant year for our charity, is wonderful. I hope lots of people are inspired to get involved and help us raise the funds we need.”

Acorns provides a network of specialist palliative care and support for children and families across the West Midlands, through its hospices and in the community. It costs the charity nearly £10 million each year to continue, with the majority of this amount coming from fundraising and donations.

John Finnigan, Commercial Manager at the Robins, said: “We’re delighted to be working with a brilliant charity in Acorns, Gloucestershire’s local children’s hospice. The support that Acorns gives to families and young children in Gloucestershire is outstanding and Cheltenham Town Football Club are pleased to be working with such a worthwhile charity going forward”.
