Naismiths has been committed to raising funds for worthy causes for many years, and our latest efforts are focussed on raising awareness and much needed funds for Acorns Children's Hospice. Our 6 members on this Three Peaks Challenge are looking forward to 12 hours (hopefully less) of meaningless banter and camaraderie, and a well deserved pint at the end.

Acorns Children’s Hospice provides care, support, fun and laughter for life limited and life threatened babies, children and young people and support for their families. Acorns’ hospices provide a home from home environment where children can take part in a variety of fun and therapeutic activities, from arts and crafts sessions to hydrotherapy. Children visit Acorns for short breaks, end of life and emergency care, whilst providing families with a much needed break from caring round the clock. Acorns understands that family time is precious when a child’s life is limited, and supports families in any way they can to create lasting memories.
