CHILDREN and families supported by Acorns Children’s Hospice are set to benefit thanks to a charity partnership spearheaded by a Worcester Warriors legend’s business venture.
Worcester entrepreneur, Nick Baxter, ex professional rugby star and MD of Baxter Williams has announced five per cent of sales from The Safety Screen – a patented workplace screen to combat the spread of coronavirus – will go towards the charity and its specialist palliative care for children and families.
Baxter, a prolific try-scorer and popular fixture at Sixways during his Warriors days, visited Acorns hospice on the Bath Road to launch the partnership and donate one of the screens to be used by the hospice.
“Providing the right safety equipment to help businesses get back to work quickly and safely has always been our main focus, and now we can support a fantastic local charity at the same time,” he said.
Vicki Rowles, head of fund-raising at Acorns, said: “We are immensely grateful to Nick for choosing Acorns to benefit from his latest venture.
“Not only can businesses help ensure their workplaces are safe, but the proceeds will go directly to local life limited children and their families who rely on the vital services Acorns provides.”
