From Little Acorns to....... HOPE!!

Its not very often that I go out on a limb and praise the activities and attitudes of another football club but here I go.

Aston Villa FC has given up on a £2m shirt sponsorship deal for the season to highlight a Children's Hospice charity based in and around the West Midlands area of England.

The charity called "Acorns Children's Hospice Trust care for life-limited children and their families from across the West Midlands region. Since 1988 more than 1,100 families have been helped by Acorns but we know there are many more who need the care Acorns offers."

So from the start of the 2008/09 Premiership season whether you watch your football on the TV or at a game and you see the Acorns logo on Villa's shirts, spare a thought for those Acorn little ones and their families.
