Smashing charity fundraising targets for Acorn's 20th Birthday Smashing charity fundraising targets for Acorn's 20th Birthday

2012 saw Acorn celebrate 20 years' in business and to mark the occasion we pledged to raise £20,000 for 20 local charities.  We are pleased to announce that during that year Acorn staff raised a fantastic £21,920.

Acorn would like to thank its staff, clients and job seekers who supported our fundraising activities by generously giving their time and money to support so many worth-while causes.
