Charlie's charity double; HOLLYWOOD: Night out with glamour twins is top prize in Acorns auction.
TEENAGER Charlie Stanley is set for a double delight after winning the date of his life with a pair of celebrity twins.
The 19-year-old, of Hollywood, is to enjoy a night with Celebrity Love Island stunners Emma and Eve Ryan after helping to raise thousands of pounds for local charity Acorns Children's Hospice.
Charlie's mum Samantha bid pounds 300 to buy him an early Christmas present of the evening with the glamour model pair, which was the top prize in an Acorns auction.
Charlie said he couldn't believe his luck at having a night with the twins, who caused a sensation when they appeared on the reality show.
"It's the best Christmas present I've had," said Charlie.
"I'll be taking the girls to the Mailbox in Birmingham for the night."
Sam and Margaret Plumley, of Hollywood Collections, in Barnt Green, organised the auction and luncheon, which raised almost pounds 3,000 toward helping Acorns to re-open 12 beds closed through cash shortages.
Twins Emma and Eve offered their support by being one of the prizes and also modelling hair designs by Barnt Green stylist Michelle Griffin during the event at Hogarths Hotel in Dorridge.
Acorns children's charity, which has hospices in Birmingham, Walsall and Worcester, helps life-limited children with respite and care, as well as supporting their families.
Stephanie O'Sullivan, Acorns' director of fundraising, said the event had been a huge success, and would help the hospice toward targets to re-open beds.
The event was supported by local companies and helpers including Annette Bucknall and Lee Kelly from Connectivity, in Barnt Green, staff at Hogarths Therapy Hub, in Edgbaston, Huw and Claire James from Redwood Healthcare and make-up artist Liz Tyers.
