REDDITCH'S MP was all of a flutter after failing to bet on winning football teams.

But the link up between Karen Lumley and bookmakers William Hill has still seen £50 sent to the Primrose Hospice.

Mrs Lumley backed Birmingham City to win against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United to win against Fulham as part of a charity bet donated by the firm on a recent visit.

Despite neither of her predictions coming true, the Unicorn Hill betting shop agreed to donate the original stake money to the hospice.

Mrs Lumley said: "I was pleased to hand over the £50 cheque to the Primrose Hospice. Encouraging responsible betting is important and I support this initiative. Unfortunately my bet didn't win, however I know the money given to the hospice will be spent on a very good cause."
