Two of the Midlands best-loved charities are coming together to test your limits in the ultimate battle of the elements. Acorns Children’s Hospice and LoveBrum have teamed up to bring a Fire and Ice Walk extravaganza to Birmingham next month.

Two great charities both helping the community

Once the Fire and Ice walks are complete, the evening will continue with celebrations, fun, food, and incredible entertainment – all in aid of Acorns and LoveBrum.

Rebecca Simkiss-Walker, Chair of LoveBrum, said: “The last 18 months have been extremely difficult for so many, and the charitable sector has been deeply affected by the pandemic. Yet, during this time of struggle at LoveBrum we have heard so many inspirational stories of those who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic to do what they can to help others in need.

“Now, with in-person events starting to make a comeback, and as we look to the future, we are thrilled to be working alongside the amazing team at Acorns Children’s Hospice to host the 2022 Fire and Ice Walk on the 11 March at the iconic Millennium Point.

“We look forward to welcoming our guests to the event, and with so much on offer, from great food vendors to family fun, there will be something for all the family to enjoy, all whilst raising vital funds for two local Charities who do so much for our region, ensuring we can carry on building a better Brum!

“The evening is set to be an amazing celebration of both our city and the power of collaboration, and a fun-filled experience for both spectators and participants alike – we can’t wait!”

Commercial activity that takes place in the Millennium Point building feeds back into the Millennium Point Charitable Trust. This enables the charity to donate to, invest in, and facilitate STEM-related projects, events and initiatives in the West Midlands. This has included over £2.7m in STEM grants to schools, not-for-profits and charities in Greater Birmingham and the Wider West Midlands.

In addition, the trust funds £16,650 in STEM degree scholarships annually, in partnership with Birmingham City University. To date, scholarships have totalled over £83,000.

Abbie Vlahakis, CEO of Millennium Point said: “Promoting STEM education across the region is what we do – increasing the opportunities for the next generation via some of the most exciting career paths available.

 “As a meeting and events space, the last 18 months has been incredibly challenging, but it’s fantastic that we have continued throughout to contribute to the West Midlands’ myriad of exciting STEM projects and initiatives.”

The trust has also announced an extension to the deadline for applications to the Millennium Point Charitable Trust STEM Grants Programme 2022, which is now 5pm on Friday December 17th.

Paul Hughes, Schools Manager at the Aston Villa Foundation, commented: “The STEM grant we received from the Millennium Point Trust funded our innovative STEM Stars project, which has allowed us to add a new dimension to our provision and provide children, teachers and schools the opportunity to embark on their STEM education journey helping to develop skills of the future and make a real difference.’’

With STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths) funding grants of up to £20,000 available, the trust has moved the deadline to give more organisations time to apply for money that can often be life-changing for young people and their future careers.

The latest round of funding in 2021 saw a wide range of successful, creative STEM projects – from a proposal to build a fully operational light aircraft to STEM training toolkits for schools.

 Abbie Vlahakis added: “Every year we are impressed and inspired by the applications we receive for our small grants programme, and this year has been no exception – and I’d urge any organisation looking to fund an exciting STEM project in 2022 that there’s still time for their idea to be considered.”
