£10k to #BillyWhizz

Acorn donation to #BillyWhizz

Delighted to say that thanks to so many motorsport fans, Acorn Printing & Tshirtuk.com have donated £10,000 to the @BillyMonger #BillyWhizz appeal.

These donations were in exchange for stickers and t-shirts that we gave away in support of Billy Monger, after his horrific accident at Donnington Park. A few days after the accident I was talking to Paul O’Neill and we both admitted that it had affected us more than pretty much any accident we had ever witnessed. With Paul’s help I set a webshop on TShirtUK.com to give away stickers and t-shirts in exchange for donations, so we could add to the donations on the justgving page set up by Billy’s team JHR Developments.

I never in a million years thought we would hit £10,000 in donations. I have wanted to collate everything and make the donation for the last two months, but people from all over the world kept sending requests in for t-shirts and stickers and the figure kept creeping up. Even now we are getting donations for t-shirts and stickers, so expect small top up donations from us, as time goes on.

I’m super proud of how my team helped to raise this money. With the amount of donations, it certainly wasn’t an easy task to keep on top of it all and to look after our clients at the same time.

Charity Hoodie Printing

#RIPMakayah Bromley FC

Acorn was delighted to have helped a junior football team commemorate one of their players recently.

#ripmakayah

Makayah McDermott was sadly killed, along with his aunt, in an accident in August last year. Makayah was one of Bromley FC’s Under 11 players and had been with the club for several years.

Over the May Bank Holiday weekend the Bromley Junior Section were on tour in Great Yarmouth and the players, parents and volunteers all wore hoodies bearing Makayah McDermott’s name.

We supported the event by by providing free printing for the backs of the hoodies. It was great to support the youngsters – we know that it meant a great deal to everybody involved.

 

#BillyWhizz Fundraising

Supporting Billy Monger

As you may have seen from our blog and social media pages, Acorn is heavily involved in motorsport.

We were deeply affected by the news that 17 year old Formula 4 driver Billy Monger had been badly injured in a crash at Donnington Park racing circuit.

Custom Conference T-Shirts

Saving Seabirds Globally

Acorn is delighted to have helped out the RSPB’s Centre for Conservation Science, International Marine Team prepare for a forthcoming event.

The World Seabird Conference is taking place in Cape Town, South Africa from October 26th to October 30th.  The conference, which is organised by the World Seabird Union brings together the global network of seabird organisations that are working to enhance seabird conservation and research.

The event is an ideal opportunity for members of the International Marine Team to share the results of research and conservation work such as the Save the Albatross programme, and discover what other groups are doing around the world.

Two members of the team are presenting at the conference: Mark Bolton is looking at the challenges of applying tracking data to Marine Protected Area identification, and Matthew Carroll is describing the impacts of oceanographic change on UK kittiwake breeding success.

The team are now suitably kitted out with very fetching t-shirts suitably adorned with the appropriate branding.  They must have liked them because we got this message, “The t-shirts have arrived and we love them! Thank you so much!!!! Awesome job, everybody is really happy with them see photographic evidence!!!”

It’s always nice to have such happy customers and Acorn wishes the entire team well on both the conference trip and for their fantastic work in protecting wildlife.

Acorn stocks a huge range of t-shirt styles, sizes and colours, and we can print or embroider them in almost any way that you need.
