Life in Isolation…


It’s been so challenging for us all.

Over the next few weeks we’re going to bring you stories from different areas around Acorn Village and how it has affected them. Lockdown through the eyes of the residents and tenants to the volunteers and the staff.

There’s been lows but also extreme highs especially on a Thursday at 8pm which coincides with staff changeover so they get to hear the clapping first hand.

We’ve been asked by a number of people how they can help us.

At the moment, as it stands, we can’t accept donated items, as you will no doubt understand.
Our incredible volunteers and staff have been busy listing previously donated items for sale as much as they can online to help raise funds through this avenue whilst the Charity Shops, Coffee Shop, Second-Hand Furniture and Creative Craft Centre remain closed to the public.
As we said previous this is an approximate loss of £10,000 a month alongside our fundraising events.

Please see the links below on ways you can help if you are able to, don’t forget to save ‘acornvillagecharity & acornvinylrecords’ as your favourite sellers if you use e-bay as they are listing new items everyday.
