Our journey with Tŷ Hafan started in the early days of the Snowdogs event in 2017 when we made the decision to take on the role of Sponsor of the Snowdogs Learning Programme. This campaign brought businesses, artists and schools together in a fun way to raise awareness and money for this amazing charity.
Acorns Nurseries Limited is an independent company established in 1988. With 12 Nurseries located in South Wales and the South West of England, we provide the highest quality childcare in Cardiff, Newport, Nantgarw, Treforest and Bristol. We also operate highly regarded in-house nurseries for the BBC, Office for National Statistics and Aviva.
This partnership continued and we couldn’t have done it without the fantastic efforts and generosity of the Acorns staff, children and families who have all come together to raise money to support the incredible work that is done at the hospice.
We were delighted to hit the target to ‘Pay for a Day’ at Tŷ Hafan of £11,787 earlier this year and had a wonderful time at the hospice being presented with our ‘Pay for a Day’ apple. We were also given a painting of Wheelchair art by the children of Tŷ Hafan which we will treasure.
Meeting the amazing children, families and staff at Tŷ Hafan has been such a humbling experience and the connection between us being a provider of childcare, supporting a children’s charity has been a perfect fit. We have therefore decided to continue our partnership and have set our next target to support the #ForOurNurses campaign. Our Christmas fundraising has started with a bang in our nurseries, with Christmas jumper days, sponsored Santa Runs and even Strictly Come Dancing for the children.
