ACORNS Children’s Hospice is set to receive a cash boost after being chosen as the ‘most worthy cause’ by Rubery shoppers.
For the past three months visitors to Jack’s have been voting between Acorns, Phoenix Scout Group, Rubery in Bloom and Holywell Primary and Nursery School.
All four charities received £250 for taking part and Acorns, which received 36 per cent of the final vote, received an extra £500.
Store manager Louis Chambers said: “We launched our ‘Jack’s Supports’ scheme to give something back to the local community which has supported us since our launch.
“Each of the charities involved in the scheme do fantastic work in the local area and we’re delighted to be able to offer our support.”
Daniel O’Brien, partnership officer at Acorns, said: “The kind donation will go towards paying for our vital nursing at our Birmingham Hospice which cares for around 228 children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.”
From this week customers will be able to vote for four new charities at the New Road store.
They are The Animal House Rescue, Bromsgrove and Redditch Network BURT, Sense and 258th Birmingham St Anne’s Scouts Group.
