England cricketer Ian Bell lit up the scoreboard at the Edgbaston Stadium earlier this morning.

The ashes star raised £15,000 during his testimonial year for Acorns Children's Hospice.

David Strudley, Chief Executive, Acorns Children's Hospice, said: "This was a magnificent effort. It is wonderful to have Ian's support, as it costs £750 a day per child to provide Acorns' services.
