Crowe and Haynes visit Acorns ahead of charity cycle trip

30 May 2019

Senior Sports Therapist Gavin Crowe and under-18s manager Pete Haynes visited 2018/19 season charity partners Acorns Children's Hospice in Worcester recently ahead of their charity cycle ride raising money for the hospice.

Gavin and Pete are joining assistant manager Russell Milton, club supporter Barry Roberts and support driver Gary Haynes on a gruelling four day challenge in the Italian Alps between the 15th and 20th June.

They'll be taking on some of the roads used as part of the world famous Giro d'Italia bicycle race, and sections of the Passo dello Stelvio, to help raise money for Acorns, who have been charity partners throughout the season.

Acorns provides care to life limited and life threatened children and support for their families. The charity 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.

They have already held a bucket collection before the club's final home match of the season against Swindon Town, and now Robins fans can show their support by donating online to their fundraising challenge.

They have set up a Just Giving page to donate to online. If you would like to donate to their charity cycle trip in aid of Acorns Children's Hospice, you can make a donation online here.
