Why do we need your donations?
Up until now everything at Acorns ‘n’ Oaks has happened on a voluntary basis. The 5-strong admin team are voluntary, between them they have self-funded all expenses, all group leaders are volunteers, and care homes receive our playgroups for free.
Given the demand, and the rapid growth of the organisation, we find ourselves at a critical point where we are struggling to operate under the good will of our volunteers, as the workload and associated expenses exceeds what is an appropriate ask of a volunteer team.
We are therefore looking for donations to help continue our work.
