Tesco Bags of Help

Following a recent public vote in the Tesco Bags of Help scheme, we are delighted to say that Acorn has been awarded £1660. This was the amount bid for and is for a project to fund a year's complementary therapy at our Huntingdon venue. The first tranche of the grant, 75% of the award has now been paid into the bank. We can expect the balance of funding at the project end in May 2019, assuming a successful completion report.
