Gary Pettit, director of retail at Acorns, said: "This is a huge day for Acorns, and for the first time ever, we're thrilled to open a fantastic new superstore, offering our complete range of items and more bargains than before all under one roof."

The shop features pre-loved fashion, shoes, accessories, toys, books, homeware and furniture.

"This superstore is our biggest shop yet and will play an essential role in raising awareness of our charity and funds for the lifeline care and support we offer to local children and families," Mr Pettit added.

"By supporting your local Acorns shop you are helping us to be there for children and families when they need us the most."

The Pershore store is open from 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 4pm on Sundays.

Acorns has over 40 shops on high streets across Birmingham and the West Midlands.

In the past year, the charity has cared for more than 750 children across Birmingham and the wider West Midlands, and almost 1,000 families, including those who are bereaved.

Acorns needs around £30,000 daily to provide its children's hospice care, with two-thirds of that amount coming from generous donations and fundraising by the local community.
