Villa clarified last week that they are looking for new Sponsorship, having given free sponsorship to Acorns charity for the last two seasons. However they have also insisted that this was always the plan and that they will continue to support Acorns and keep the great relationship going.
General Krulak also said in our forum that if an appropriate sponsorship deal isn't negotiated, the Acorns deal could carry through into next season.
A spokesman for Aston Villa said: 'We have made clear that any new commercial partnership would still work very closely with Acorns and that would be an integral part of any agreement. The club are very proud of this groundbreaking association and the work that has been done thus far and believe everybody will benefit from making sure this continues.'
David Strudley, Chief Executive of Acorns Children`s Hospice, said in the Birmingham Mail: 'Acorns` presence on Aston Villa`s shirts for the last two seasons is only one element of an extremely strong partnership that both parties are committed to in the long term. This tremendous gift has provided a unique platform which is leading to many exciting, new opportunities. We are confident that as we continue to work closely with Aston Villa no one will forget us or the important role we play in supporting life limited and life threatened children and their families across the heart of England.'
And on our very own Acorns450 challenge. We have surpassed our two season target in just one season. So thanks to the kind generosity of our Vital Villa readers, that is £1011 Thanks to all who donated.
I have now re-set the target to £2000 as I think it is a great thing to keep going into next season, hope you all agree! So we were at 100% but now go to 50%!!!
