Superstore success as biggest ever store opens for Acorns Children’s Hospice

The shelves were stacked, the signs were up and the lights were on as the biggest ever store for Acorns Children’s Hospice officially opened its doors.


The superstore, on Pershore High Street, will help to raise vital funds for the charity and its vital care for children with life limiting and life threatening conditions.


Gary Pettit, Director of Retail at Acorns, said: “This is a huge day for Acorns and for the first time ever we’re thrilled to open a fantastic new superstore, offering our complete range of items and more bargains than before all under one roof.”


The shop, which features pre-loved fashion, shoes, accessories, toys, books, homeware and furniture, held its official launch on Tuesday, 30 January with colleagues and volunteers.


Acorns has more than 40 shops on high streets across Birmingham and the West Midlands.


The Pershore store is open from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 10am to 4pm on Sundays. You can contact the shop on 01386 555 561 or to arrange a furniture collection email


Gary added: “This superstore is our biggest shop yet and will play an essential role in raising awareness of our charity and funds for the lifeline care and support we offer to local children and families.


“The easiest ways to support Acorns is to shop at our stores or donate your pre-loved items, or maybe you could give the gift of time and volunteer. By supporting your local Acorns shop you are helping us to be there for children and families when they need us the most.”


Acorns Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions and support for their families.


In the past year, the charity has cared for more than 750 children across Birmingham and the wider West Midlands, and almost 1,000 families, including those who are bereaved.


Acorns needs around £30,000 each day to provide its children’s hospice care, with two thirds of that amount coming from generous donations and fundraising by the local community.
