Our Chosen Charity
Not only do we want to help our customers achieve their goals and dreams but we want to make a difference and give a little bit back.
Helping to beat blood cancer
This year we are supporting a charity that is very close to us all here at Acorn – Blood Cancer UK. Nearly 10 years ago a Precious Life Fund was set up in memory of Sarah’s sister-in-law, Ann, who despite fighting acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) for five years died aged just 37. Ann was definitely one of life’s good ones – her family were the most important people in her life and she was always there to offer a helping hand in any way she could. With a smile on her face, Ann went through months and years of radiotherapy and chemotherapy before having a bone marrow transplant but sadly it was not successful.
Ann’s family set up a Precious Life Fund, Ann Margarette West Tribute Fund, to focus on research specifically linked to AML and so far over £3,300 has been donated by family and friends. We, here at Acorn Commercial Finance, want to support Sarah’s family in raising vital funds to continue the ongoing research into AML. So we have committed to donating £1 for every completed deal along with ongoing fundraising, team challenges and a few customer activities which we’ll share with you along the way.
