LATEST NEWS

Good news!
We have just heard that in the St Neots Branch N&P Building Society charity choice vote, Acorn came first. This means that Acorn will receive a cheque for £500 at a presentation event in the St Neots Office at 3pm on 15th July. Grateful thanks are due to the N& P BS and of course to all those who took the time to visit the branch and vote for us.

Something To Look Forward To
www.somethingtolookforwardto.org.uk is a charity website for people with cancer and their families to access a variety of gifts generously donated by people and companies. This can be anything from restaurant meals, hotel stays, beauty treatments, tickets for events and attractions. As the website says, like all good ideas… it really is very simple. They are generously donated lots of ‘gifts’ by individuals and companies, and they pass these ‘gifts’ on to people affected by cancer, giving them ‘Something To Look Forward To’.

We will rock you
We are  delighted to say that the Musical Director of the St Neots and Huntingdon Rock Choir has agreed that their Concert at the Huntingdon Performing Arts Centre on 10th July will be held in support of Acorn. Doors Open 6pm for 6.30pm. Tickets £17.
This really is fantastic news for as well as the money raised, it will also provide an opportunity to promote Acorn to a wide audience.

Gratitude to Attitude
We have received a donation of £300 from the proceeds of the ”Attitude” concert which was held on Saturday March 5th (see flyer below). The show, of ballet and contemporary dance, was performed by pupils of the Carolyn Parker School. Carolyn arranged the concert in celebration of 30 years teaching in this field, and with thoughtfulness and generosity had decided that the proceeds would be shared between four charities. Acorn was one of these. We also convey our gratitude and thank her for the extra work that would have been involved in rehearsals, and also ask her to pass on similar thanks to the pupils who performed.

Film club begins with lunch at 1.30pm. The expectation is that our members will not normally arrive for the event before 1.15pm.
