Fundraisers for Acorns Children’s Hospice in Birmingham were delighted to receive a cheque for £1,225 following a number of charity events undertaken by the team from the NatWest in Shirley.
The NatWest team are very much aware of the important work Acorns does in providing a network of care for life limited and life threatened children, young people and their families, and wanted to do something to help. With this in mind, the team lead by branch manager Laura Gravenor organised a series of fundraising events. These raised the £1,225 which has been presented to the charity.
Laura Gravenor, Branch Manager of NatWest Shirley, said: ‘Acorns is an important local charity which provides help to so many children and young people. They rely on donations to make a difference so we were determined to raise as much money as we could to help. I would like to say a big thank you to our friends, colleagues and customers who kindly supported us.’
John Carter, NatWest’s Local CEO for Solihull and East Staffordshire, added: ‘The fundraising was a great team effort as well as a lot of fun. Most importantly it raised some vital funds. I am determined that my colleagues and I will continue to support good causes such as Acorns and make a real difference at the heart of the communities we serve.’
