4th January 2012 ACORNS GANG HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS PARTY

The Ross Acorns Support Group (or the Acorns Gang as I know them), certainly know how to have a good time and I was delighted to be invited to their Christmas party which took place on Saturday, 17th December. During the past two years, the gang have raised thousands of pounds for Acorns Childrens' Hospice by holding regular, fun, fund raising events such as fancy dress cycle rides, race nights, quiz nights, golf days, triathlons, fun days and charity football matches.

The gang aim to have as much fun as possible whilst raising these fantastic amounts for such a great charity and are always thinking up new ways to boost the funds. Even the Christmas party was another great money raiser as a huge raffle was held with many brilliant prizes up for grabs and an auction was also held. Barclays Bank agreed to match fund the proceeds from the latest event as long as at least £750 was raised. Well, the guys did more than that, raising approximately £1,000; yet another fantastic achievement.

Well done to all of the Acorns Gang. I am looking forward to your 2012 evens already.
