I’m indebted to the Walsall Advertiser for reminding me that this afternoon you can meet Anna and Elsa from Frozen and really let it go at a Frozen Christmas Party in aid of the Headway Charity, in memory of Brownhills hit and run victim Jamey Coleman.
It takes place from 2:30pm today (Sunday, 7th December 2014) at the Chase Inn, just on the A5 opposite the former Terrace Restaurant in Newtown, Brownhills. It’s £2 entry per child, and there will be loads of fun stuff – faceprinting, games, tombola and more.
If you’ve a little one who’d Frozen-mad it could be just the thing for an otherwise gloomy Sunday afternoon, and it’s all for a good cause.
Walsall pub’s Frozen fund-raiser held in memory of Brownhills hit-and-run victim Jamey Coleman

Fund-raisers will be held at a Walsall pub in memory of a Brownhills hit-and-run victim.
Jamey Coleman was knocked down by a car on the A5 near Watling Street as he walked home from a night out on March 30.
Despite the best efforts of medics, Mr Coleman passed away in hospital after suffering serious head injuries. He was aged just 24.
Since the incident, his family have thrown their efforts behind fund-raising for Headway – the brain injury association.
So far, the family have raised almost £4,000 – and plan to raise more at a Frozen-themed charity Christmas party that takes place tomorrow (Sunday).
The Chase Inn, on Watling Street, will host the event from 2.30pm, which is £2 entry per child.
Families will be able to meet Princess Elsa and Anna and enjoy face painting, games and tombola.
And at 9pm on December 20, the pub will be raffling off a Christmas hamper worth over £100 and hosting further entertainment.
Tickets cost £5.
Tributes poured into popular Mr Coleman following his tragic death.
Bethany Ward, who was behind the wheel of the vehicle that struck Mr Coleman, was given a 16-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, in connection with the incident.
The 23-year-old had admitted failing to stop at a road accident, failing to report an accident and driving other than in accordance with her licence during a hearing at Walsall Magistrates’ Court in September.
