Charity appeal after office phone lines knocked out.
AN urgent appeal was sent out by the Acorns Children's Hospice today after a freak storm knocked out phone lines at its registered offices in Birmingham.
The flood damage at Drakes Court, in Alcester Road, Wythall, means that people cannot get through to order tickets for a money-spinning Soap of the Season charity football match at Halesowen Town FC. Stars from Channel 4's teatime show Hollyoaks are to face rivals from Coronation Street in the match on August 5 to raise funds to help lifelimited children. Dawn Pawlett, fundraising manager with Acorns, said: "Because of the problems with the phones at our registered offices in Wythall, we now want everyone to buy online for pounds 6 a ticket, to save money and avoid disappointment. Go to the website at www.acorns.org.uk and save the pounds 1 booking fee."
