A CHARITY which cares for life-limited children is appealing for help telling its story as it turns 25.

Individuals or organisations which have had a link with Acorns Children's Hospice since the first venue opened its doors in 1988 are being asked to come forward and share their stories.

Chief executive David Strudley said: "This milestone provides an opportunity to remember loved ones and thank those individuals and organisations that have supported us along the way - as well of course to remind the community that we still need their support more than ever.

"As part of celebrating 25 years of caring, we want to tell our story through the voice of all those people that have been a part of Acorns.

"We are appealing for individuals and organisations - families, staff, volunteers and supporters past and present - to share their experiences and memories with us."

Stories, photos or film footage can be e-mail to 25years@acorns.org.uk or posted to 25 Years Of Caring, Acorns Children's Hospice, Drakes Court, Alcester Road, Wythall, B47 6JR.
