Charity fishing match raises £400 for Acorns Children’s Hospice

1 Dec 2023

Daniel-Scott Recruitment has raised £400 for its charity of the year, Acorns Children’s Hospice, with a charity fishing match and raffle.

The charity event was held on 19 November at Bells Mill Fishery in Stourbridge and attended by 16 people. As it was close to Christmas, everyone was invited to wear something festive.

Daniel-Scott Recruitment director Lucy Cashmore commented: “Thank you to everyone who braved the cold and attended our charity fishing match. 

“It was a great day for catching fish, catching up with friends and clients and raising money for Acorns Children’s Hospice. 

“We chose Acorns Children’s Hospice as our charity of the year as they offer vital services and make a tremendous difference to the lives of countless children and families locally. 

“I have seen firsthand all the work they do and how much more support they need, so I am determined to have us play our part in helping such a deserving cause.”

Acorns Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across three specialist centres in the West Midlands. It also provides support for their families.

Daniel-Scott has been supporting the hospice throughout 2023 with fundraising, charitable donations and volunteering. So far this year, more than £1,000 has been raised. 

Throughout May, the agency donated five per cent of income generated through recruitment fees to the good cause, and in June it held a raffle for an Xbox games console that was donated by recruitment consultant Daniel Cashmore. 

In April the agency also presented more than 100 Easter eggs donated by colleagues and clients to the hospice. 

In July the team volunteered their time to marshal the Acorns Bubble Rush event at Walsall Arboretum. 

Acorns Children’s Hospice area fundraising manager Claire Snape commented: “Thanks to the generosity of companies like Daniel-Scott Recruitment, we can continue to ensure we can be there for families when they need us most. 

“Their ongoing support makes it possible for us to be there for families during their most difficult moments, including providing dedicated emergency and end-of-life care."
