Birmingham Insurance Institute has raised £5,500 for Walsall based Acorns Children's Hospice Trust.

The money was raised through an annual dinner, raffles, quiz nights, sporting events and office "casual days".

The money will be used to assist with the running costs of a recently renovated building, which contains an adolescent unit for life-limited children, designed by the children themselves.

A further £3,250 was raised for insurance charities.
