Acorns Children’s Hospice received a donation of sports day equipment from Essential Supply Products Ltd (ESP). ESP celebrated their 21st year of trading this year and treated all of the team to a sporting weekend away. As part of this adventure the team took part in school sports day events ranging from hula hooping to the classic egg and spoon race. Now the event is over, ESP wanted to ensure that the games were enjoyed by others and have donated them to the Acorns Children’s Hospice, where they can be enjoyed by families and children alike, or used to raise much needed funds for the charity.
Acorns Children’s Hospice provide care and support for children and young people who have life limiting or life threatening conditions. This means they are unlikely to reach adulthood. The hospices are designed to be a home-from home to help children enjoy their stay and make the most of every day. Games rooms, soft-play areas, gardens and lots of toys help to ensure a happy stay. The hospices have therapeutic facilities such as hydrotherapy pools and multi-sensory rooms. Special adolescent wings ensure privacy for older children.
