We are delighted to be supporting Jersey Employment Trust's extra special advent calendar fundraiser this year.

JET created a wish list on Amazon and asked businesses and donors to choose a number between 1 and 24. Each item on the wishlist was then allocated a number. When you choose your number Acorn then reveal the item in the wishlist. Items range in price from just a few pounds to a few hundred.

Our lovely Sarah Allchin chose number 13, lucky for some! Number 13 was plain white mugs to be used for printing logos on.

Caroline Spencer, Fundraising & Relationships Manager sent us this lovely message:

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the mugs which have arrived safely. Our clients are delighted with them, as we can now start printing on them, like in the photo. 

Islanders who attend projects at Acorn tell us that life becomes a lot more interesting and helps them talk to new people, which boosts their self-esteem and their confidence, makes them less isolated and helps make friends.  In a feedback form, one said: ‘Acorn gives me a purpose, helps me meet people and I go home with a smile.’"
