£1 donation to Acorns Hospice for every purchase until Christmas
Christmas is a time of giving, but often those most in need get overlooked in the scramble for turkeys and shiny presents. At Great Escape Cars we're as guilty as everyone else. So this year we want to make a difference - a little one, but an important one.
For every purchase made between now and Christmas 2015 we'll donate £1 to our favourite local charity, Acorns Hospice. That's a £1 donation for every single car booked, gift bought and voucher sold. We expect to present a cheque for several hundred pounds to the hospice in early January.
Acorns Hospice really deserves this money.
Acorns provides babies, children and young people aged 0 – 18 years who have life limiting or life threatening conditions and associated complex needs with a network of specialist palliative nursing care and support. A holistic service meets the needs of both the children and young people and their families, including the bereaved. This includes short break provision; emergency and end of life care; therapeutic and psychosocial support; sibling services; and family support. A package of care is tailored for each individual child that includes their medical, emotional, cultural, religious and spiritual needs. This package is provided both in the hospice and a family’s home.
It costs £9.3 million a year to run our care services providing care for the child and support for families. Acorns relies heavily on the community to fund the majority of its activities.

We are making the full £1 donation: we don't ask you to pay a penny.
Great Escape Cars has been supporting Acorns Hospice during 2015 and will do so again in 2016. Through our Cars & Coffee events, supported by local classic car enthusiasts, we have given several hundred pounds to the charity.
"Christmas is our busiest time of year," explains Graham Eason of Great Escape Cars, "so it is the perfect time to try to help Acorns Hospice. The Hospice does vital work and the families and children really need supported, particularly at this time of year."
