There are lots of ways you can support The Acorn Centre through fundraising.


Organising an event or committing to a personal challenge are just two of the ways you could raise money and have fun at the same time! We have collection tins too, should you want to help us by collecting at events (with prior permission).


As we have limited resources at the Centre, it is difficult for us to host many fundraising events ourselves, so any help and ideas from volunteers are always welcomed.

We are registered with My Donate and anyone hosting a fundraiser can use the site to collect donations for the Acorn Centre. The site does not take any fees or commission from donations to us. 


Here are some suggestions of ways you could support us:


Run a marathon or half marathon
Taking part in a sporting event such as a marathon can bring a great sense of personal achievement as well as help raise much-needed funds. We can help you with your registration details if you would like to take part in an event of this kind for The Acorn Centre and would be happy to discuss branding your t-shirt on the day!


Host an eventYour event could be as simple as a cake sale, a trip to the car boot or a pamper evening! Involving friends and family in something such as a small, local afternoon tea party can be a successful and fun way to raise money. If you want to host something larger, such as a raffle or auction then please contact the Centre to discuss your ideas.

Hobby challenge
Love knitting, sewing or baking? Perhaps you’re a swimmer or talented dancer. Whatever your hobbies and skills, you could use them to help raise money. Selling homemade items at a craft fair or doing a ‘sponsored knit’, for example, could help you to make a few pounds while doing something you enjoy.


If you would like to host a fundraising event for The Acorn Centre, please contact us so we can provide support and promote your event.
