Charity football event to return


Cure Leukaemia’s football tournament – the Copa Del CL – is returning to the home of English football this year. After a successful inaugural


event at St George’s Park in November, the six-a-side football tournament is taking place again at The FA’s National Football Centre, on Tuesday 22 October. This year’s event will focus around


a Champions League theme, as, once the tournament is over, guests will be invited to enjoy refreshments while watching the two Champions League fixtures in the company of football legends. The cost to enter is £2,750 including VAT per squad (based around ten players) or £3,500 including VAT for teams who wish to include a football legend.

Networking event leads to a night spent in the cells


Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce members were ‘locked up’ as part of a networking event held at a former prison. The exclusive event for 1813 Club


and Premier members of the Chamber took place at Steelhouse Lane prison. Guests were given the opportunity to tour the old cells of the former lock-up. This building – which was used


by West Midlands Police between 1891 and 2016 – has held many notorious criminals, including the original Peaky Blinders. West Midlands Police are now


fundraising to convert it into a permanent police museum, to enable them to showcase 200 years of policing heritage of the West Midlands.


Locked up: Peter Riches and Gavin Mills from Clear Peter Riches, digital marketing


director at digital marketing firm Clear, said: “It was an interesting evening and provided excellent


networking opportunities. Some of the visitors had travelled from London for the event and it was good to see new faces.”


Prince the penguin is on the lookout for love


An unlucky in love penguin called Prince was given a helping hand to woo his ideal mate on Valentine’s Day. Staff at the National Sea Life


Centre in Birmingham made the Gentoo penguins’ enclosure as loved-up as possible to encourage the clumsy young male to find the partner of his dreams. It has been two years since the


well-known aquarium in Brindleyplace has welcomed a penguin chick, and keepers are hopeful that by Spring this can change – especially for their hapless resident, Prince. Gentoo penguin populations


have been declining in recent years, owing to the birds’ sensitive breeding nature and damage to their habitats. The species has been listed as


‘near threatened’ for many years and colonies like Prince’s may one day provide a vital lifeline for the threatened species. Keepers have high hopes for breeding this year within the colony. To prepare the penguins for the


breeding ‘season of love’ ahead of them, the team put together a

selection of pebbles, as these are the tokens they present to their potential partners. Alan Kwan, displays supervisor at


the National Sea Life Centre said: “Prince is one of our favourites because he such a clumsy one – he’s always tripping up or falling back into the water!” “He was unlucky in love last year


during his first breeding season, so we wanted to try and give him an extra helping hand this Valentine’s Day.”
