As the 2013-14 season continues, Villa enter in to their eighth year of working with Acorns Children's Hospice.

Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, Acorns offers a network of care for local life limited and life threatened children and young people, and their families.

These children and young people are not expected to reach adulthood and require specialist care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Initially becoming charity partner in 2006, the relationship was cemented when Acorns became the club's shirt partner to worldwide acclaim.

The bond between the two organisations grew stronger and stronger in the process as more events were organised and players visited the charity's three hospices in Walsall, Selly Oak and Worcester.

Since then Villa have been involved in numerous fundraising activities, including dedicating two home games in consecutive seasons as 'Acorns Day', with the money raised from these two days being in excess of £300,000!

The new season also sees the Acorns logo proudly return to the shirts of the U18s team, and will also feature on all junior replica shirts.

Acorns Chief Executive David Strudley said: "The ongoing support shown by the club and fans for Acorns is immeasurable and clearly demonstrated by their efforts to include us in their discussions with Dafabet.

"We are extremely grateful to both Villa and Dafabet in what is a crucial year as we celebrate 25 years of caring and look to a future where we can help to provide care and support to each of the 2,000 plus life-limited and life-threatened children in the region."
