Firefighters from Kings Norton are asking local people to help them contribute towards a brighter Christmas for children at Acorns Children's Hospice.

The Selly Oak hospice provides care and support to children with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses, as well as their families.

How can you help?

Donations of the following are welcomed:

  • 1. New toys: brand new toys, still in the packaging, that can be given to the children under the care of Acorns
  • 2. Used toys: in good, clean condition to be sold in Acorns' charity shops
  • 3. Cash donations

Donations can be taken to Kings Norton fire station, or dropped in to your local station for collection over the next 3 weeks.

A spokesperson from Kings Norton Fire Station tweeted: “Every little bit helps no matter how small, lets put some joy out there this Christmas and put some smiles back on kids faces…”
