Walsall Football Club has today donated stock of food and drinks to Acorns Children’s Hospice.
The donation includes a variety of drinks, crisps and snacks that was collected from the Banks’s Stadium by Acorns volunteers to be distributed to families in need around the area.
Acorns are Walsall Football Club’s charity partner and pledged to raise £10,000 for the charity this season.
Noel Cramer, Director of Supporter Engagement at Acorns, said: “Acorns has a close relationship with Walsall FC fans, officials and players through their support for our Black Country hospice. This latest donation from the Club will be given to the families we support who are shielding their children at home, making a simple task like going to the shops too difficult.
“We have been inundated with gifts from individuals, groups, local businesses, schools, faith groups, sports clubs and more - which speaks volumes about how the community has come together to stand with us in the fight against Covid-19.”
Elsewhere, the Communications Team at Walsall Football Club raised over £2,500 in their 260km running challenge throughout May.
The money raised will be shared equally between Acorns and the Community Hub at the Banks’s Stadium.
