Fight Against Maturity

Apparently rabbits like cherries…

A rabbit has become an unlikely regular at a Worcestershire pub where he enjoys nothing better than a sip of cider while playing the fruit machine.

Daisy, who is a male despite his name, was brought inside the Prince of Wales in Malvern by landlord Ian Randall to escape the cold weather.

Mr Randall, 29, said: “He’s quite an inquisitive rabbit, and he keeps on looking at the flashing lights and reaching up to have a go.

“The locals have to keep a careful watch where they stand when they’re having a flutter, because Daisy’s usually right behind them waiting to have a go himself.”

“Boy, 7, raises £80,000 for Haiti” Small boy, big results.

A seven-year-old boy from London who hoped to raise £500 for Haiti by a sponsored bike ride ended up raising more than £80,000.

Charlie Simpson, from Fulham, cycled five miles around South Park near his home to raise funds for Unicef’s earthquake appeal.

His call for support touched the hearts of people around the world after he put a message on the JustGiving website, reports the BBC.
