Consultant will raise money for Midlands charity throughout 2008

Consultant Faithful+Gould has announced Acorns Children’s Hospice as its new charity partner for 2008.

The firm’s Midlands office will support Acorns throughout the year by holding a range of fundraising events, with the first opportunity to raise money being the ‘new starters drinks’, traditionally held in April.

Gordon McDonald, director at Faithful+Gould, said: "Each year we ask employees to choose a charity from a shortlist and this year, Acorns proved to be an extremely popular charity to support because of its fantastic work across the region."

Acorns relies on fundraising for over 80% of its income.

Last year F+G supported Birmingham Children’s Hospital, raising significant funds for the cause.

Acorns offers a network of care to life-limited children and their families across the heart of England. It has three hospices situated in Birmingham, Walsall and Worcester.
