On Saturday 20 October 2012, Valerie visited the Acorns Children’s Hospice and met with the Chief Executive David Strudley and Head of Care, Anne Small.
“I was pleased to visit the Acorns Children’s Hospice in Walsall South. Acorns offers offering a network of care for life limited and life threatened children and young people, and their families. It is the only organisation that provides this level of care to these vulnerable youngsters whilst offering a range of support services to the whole family to help them cope at every stage of their child’s life and beyond into bereavement.”
“The work carried out there is immensely valuable and vastley enhances the quality of life of some of many young people with life limiting conditions and their families. The staff, families and residents of the hospice are an inspiration, showing strength and dedication in the face of extremely difficult and upsetting circumstances.”
“I am pleased to support the work of Acorns Children’s Hospice and would like to thank the staff for the wonderful service they provide.”
