Ozzy backs hospital appeal


Legendary Black Sabbath singer Ozzy Osbourne paid a surprise visit to Birmingham Children’s Hospital to show his support for the charity’s £3.65 million Star Appeal to build the UK’s first Rare Diseases Centre for children. The famed Prince of Darkness used his return to his home city to revisit the leading paediatric hospital that is close to his heart. Last year the Aston-born star supported the hospital’s The Big Hoot which saw “Ozzy’s Owl”, created by Ozzy’s friend and roadie Graham Frank Wright, go under the hammer at auction to raise £12,500 for the Star Appeal.


Ozzy said: “My son Louis was in Birmingham


Children’s Hospital for quite a while as a child and the staff took such good care of him, something which I will always remember. They do amazing work for kids and I’m really pleased to drop in and once again show my support for the Star Appeal – it’ll be a national centre that will help families not only in my hometown, but also across the country.”


To join Ozzy and support the Star Appeal visit www.bch.org.uk/StarAppeal or text STAR to 70800 to donate £5 (standard network rates apply).


Global bank HSBC, set to become one of the biggest employers in the city, has agreed a three-year sponsorship deal with Birmingham Press Club (BPC). The two historic institutions –


they were both founded in 1865 – will join forces as the bank becomes an increasingly important business in the heart of Birmingham. Ed James, chairman of BPC, the


oldest press club in the world, said: “We are thrilled to become associated with HSBC at a time when they are set to be one of the most important businesses in the region. “This agreement has secured the


club financially for the foreseeable future.”
