Damascena makes £8K donation to Acorns Children’s Hospice

The team at Damascena coffee house, Birmingham, are proud to announce that their birthday celebrations have raised £8K for the much-loved charity, Acorns Children’s Hospice.

Back in June, the Damascena pledged to donate 10% of total sales during its 7th birthday week to this worthy cause. Dedicated to helping the families of local children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, Acorns allows them to make the most of their time together.

The idea proved popular with customers and the city-wide business raised £7,168 across its four sites, generously bumping it up to £8K before writing the cheque.

West Midlands Combined Authority Mayor, and Acorns Ambassador, Andy Street met Damascena’s Anas Zein Al-Abdeen on Thursday 5th August. Presenting the £8K cheque at his Temple Row West venue, the Managing Director said: “We’re both grateful for and proud of what we’ve achieved over the past seven years and wanted to mark this milestone by repaying the kindness that Birmingham has shown us. We don’t think we could’ve celebrated in a better way than by fundraising for this truly worthy community cause. Thank you so much to our customers who have supported us during this time. We couldn’t have done it without you. And the money you’ve raised will be used to help bring some light to local families in the most difficult of circumstances.”
