A GROUP of dedicated volunteers have clocked up more than 100 years of service to Acorns Children’s Hospice.
The six who volunteer at the Acorns Children’s Hospice shop on St John’s Close in Knowle celebrated achieving an impressive 105 years’ service, with a special presentation at the shop.
Gillian Morgan, Norma Quinney, Eileen Anne Murrie, Marjorie Shayler and Julia Baker all received 20-year service awards from Acorns chief executive, Toby Porter, with fellow volunteer Janet Howell receiving recognition for five years.
Nat Kidd, Acorns retail manager, said: “What these volunteers have achieved it’s absolutely outstanding and we are so grateful for the decades of support they’ve so selflessly given towards Acorns.
“As a charity we rely on the support of our incredible army of volunteers and without them, we simply wouldn’t be able to run our shops which raise thousands towards Acorns vital care, every single year.”
Acorns Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for life limited and life threatened children and support for their families from its three hospices, based in Birmingham, Walsall and Worcester, and in the community.
