Baxter's screen venture nets Acorns £5k

Rob George 27th Oct, 2021

CHILDREN and families at Acorns Children’s Hospice will benefit from a £5,000 donation from Covid Safe UK, a venture launched by county businessman and former Worcester Warrior Nick Baxter.

Baxter launched Covid Safe UK at the height of the pandemic last year to provide a range of coronavirus protective equipment for workplaces, including plastic safety screens, purifiers and an array of sanitisation solutions.

The popular figure and prolific try-scorer during his time at Sixways had committed to supporting Acorns with a percentage of sales from one of the products, the Safety Screen, and visited the hospice on Bath Road to hand over the first cheque of £5,000.

“I’m delighted to be supporting such a fantastic local charity. Providing organisations with the right safety equipment to help bring back the workforce has been our main business focus, but supporting those who benefit from the brilliant work Acorns do is a great added motivator,” he said.

Toby Porter, Acorns Chief Executive, said: “Nick is one of the most generous people we have the privilege to work with and has done so much for not just us but so many other charities in the region.

“This £5,000 means so much and will be spent on the vital services for children and families in Worcester and the surrounding counties that we deliver from our hospice here in the city.”
