As per the previous South By Five, we’re staying local with our charity and once again supporting¬†Give A Dog A Bone….and an animal a home.

Give a dog a bone

They help support over 60s to afford a pet rescue companion. Tackling loneliness for the individual and homelessness for the animal, by removing the financial barriers to an over 60s person adopting a rescue animal.

They are based in Shawlands, less than a mile from Acorn HQ – now that’s supporting local!

Litter Pick

There will be an organised litter pick for each park that the series visits – it’s nice to put something back into the parks we use. Details on times and dates will be made available closer to the time. Acorn Trails conduct regular litter picks – find out more in the “We Care” section of our website
