In 2012, our close links with the Acorns Children’s Hospice resulted in the trustees deciding to offer some of our reserves to the hospice to offer holidays for two families. One family were offered a short break in a cottage in Devon and the other took a week’s holiday for the first time in many years.  

The life limited conditions of children at Acorns places a huge burden on the families of the children.  The Healing Ways Foundation was able make a significant contribution to a short period of respite and happiness for the troubled families.
