All profits made from OddCon will be going to Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust.
Acorns Children’s Hospice currently care for over 500 life-limited children from across the West Midlands and Three Counties. Acorns offer a network of care services through its three hospices in Birmingham, Walsall and Worcester. The Acorns community team provides support to the whole family at home, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It costs Acorns £4,500 per day, per hospice, to provide these services free of charge to families, and it receives very little of its funding from the government, relying almost entirely on community donations.
