Golf Day a successful drive for Acorns Children’s Hospice

Bromsgrove was swinging on Friday 21st September, as Tom Shevlin’s team The Likely Lads triumphed in a charity golf day organised in conjunction with the 2012 Birmingham Games, raising money for the Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust.

Established in 2007, the annual Birmingham Games – comprised of teams contesting ten sporting events over a period of ten months – have so far raised over £31,000 for charities including the MS Society and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.  Co-organiser Luke Mason hopes to generate over £8,000 for Acorns through this year’s tournament, which will run until November.

Next year’s Birmingham Games is scheduled to commence in February 2013, and is open to all participants, male and female.  Typical events include ten pin bowling, badminton, football, tennis and pool.  Prospective entrants should contact Luke and Gerry at, or visit the Games website,

Acorns Hospice offers a network of care for life limited and life threatened children and young people, and their families, across the heart of England.  To find out more, visit
