Acorn Fund supports five Ipswich-based charities throughout pandemic

The Acorn Fund was created by Pound Gates in partnership with Suffolk Community Foundation, to provide financial support to local causes. Since its inception in October 2013 we have distributed £42,000 to 31 great causes, impacting the lives of over £4,000 people. Since the start of the pandemic, we have made grants totalling £9,000 to five Ipswich-based causes.

As with previous years, Pound Gates is making a £1,000 donation to the Acorn Fund in place of sending Christmas cards.
