Cadbury’s “A team” of volunteers are going into double time to help Acorns Children’s Hospice.
The Bournville firm’s business development project management team restored the memorial garden – used by hundreds of families supported by Acorns in Birmingham.
They have also opened up the rest of the gardens, planting out and creating steps with an assist rail to help people with mobility problems to enjoy more of the beautiful space for some of the 215 children in Birmingham and Warwickshire. and 104 bereaved families, which Acorns looks after.
They teamed up with Acorns’ supporters Travis Perkins, who support hospice children, and supplied fencing, panels and balustrades to transform and freshen up the gardens. Local facilities management company ADI at Kings Norton also donated £200 worth of supplies, plants and shrubs.
Cadbury project manager Dave Moreton said: “We are all committed to a local Community Challenge, to support Acorns in the fantastic work they do. Our team visits every year, coming back because it is so rewarding: we intend to bring along a second team later this year.”
