HAPPY FRIDAY! We've ended on a real high this week!
The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded us nearly £10,000 to open our new office premises in North Shields so that we are able to deliver more sessions to more families sooner!
The Co-op Community Fund has chosen us once again as one of their community causes for the coming year - over £2000 was raised for us this year! If you are a Co-op member, please do log into your account and choose us as your cause! membership.coop.co.uk/causes/34238
And last but not least, our fundraising provider, LocalGiving, has chosen us as one of their causes who will get unlimited match funding as part of their coronavirus response! Every donation made through our page will be matched. Amazing. localgiving.org/charity/acornsproject/

Who remembers Bagpuss?! Well we just love this stunning creation from Happy Planet Creative Arts CIC and the best part is, he is being raffled to help raise funds to support the work we do at Acorns! You even have a chance to win some free raffle tickets by guessing his weight- Good luck! 🙂Say hello to #Bagpuss. This week's weigh in is slightly different, as I am not giving away Bagpuss himself, but instead the winner will win three strips of raffle tickets in raffle to win him. Bagpuss will be going in the window today to tell everyone they can try to win him and help a great local charity @acorns who support the recovery of children and you people from domestic abuse. Tickets are available in the shop and I am sure many of you will help to share this one, as we know it has been a very difficult time for some families. As ever, put your guess in the comments, this competition will close on Friday at noon but the raffle itself will be drawn on 15th December. Good luck 😸 ...
