Peter’s Pies has teamed up with a Welsh comedian to launch a new savoury pie range supporting the Noah’s Ark Appeal.The Caerphilly-based bakery, part of Peter’s Food Service, visited the Children’s Hospital for Wales with comedy performer Max Boyce, who is vice-president of the charity. Pies were handed out to builders as part of the launch, who are working on phase two of a building project at the Cardiff hospital. Boyce said: “It’s really good to see a Welsh business supporting such a worthy charity, and I was delighted to be a part of the launch. Peter’s support will help the Noah’s Ark Appeal to raise vital funds for sick children in need of critical and intensive care.”The range of savoury pies is available nationwide and carries the Noah’s Ark Appeal logo, with a proportion of each product sale going directly to the charity. They are 30% larger than the existing range and are available in steak, steak and kidney, minced beef and onion, chicken and mushroom and meat and potato varieties.Welsh singer Shirley Bassey, who is one of the charity’s patrons, has also backed Peter’s Pies’ promotion and partnership with the Noah’s Ark Appeal.Neil Court Johnston, director of Peter’s Food Service, said: “We’ve worked with the Noah’s Ark appeal for many years, and have renewed our commitment to support the appeal and raise its profile. Our plan is to generate as much money as we can for the Children’s Hospital for Wales over the next three years. “We’re delighted that high-profile celebrities like Dame Shirley Bassey and Max Boyce are supporting our cause. Their endorsement, alongside our bigger, tastier pies and a really worthy cause, will help us to raise a really significant amount of money for a fantastic charity.” It is believed that the support of Peter’s Pies could raise funds of around £50,000 each year for the charity, which solely raises money for the hospital.

The Gunners spent 128 days at the Premier League summit this season but they lost top spot with a 5-1 hammering at Anfield in early February and never regained it. Arsene Wenger’s side eventually finished fourth, although they went on to win the FA Cup, and Giroud believes a number of issues contributed to their league campaign unravelling. Striker Olivier Giroud admits a lack of maturity meant Arsenal “cracked” as the title race started to heat up. “We were on top for a good half of the season and then we cracked,” he told French newspaper Midi-Libre. “I believe we lacked maturity and that we had a lot of injuries at an important time. “Above all we weren’t able to adapt to the big teams. “We have to show progress in these matches, to maybe play less football, but it’s difficult because it’s our playing philosophy.” Giroud finished his second season in England with 16 league goals and feels comfortable enough to already be looking to extend his current deal with the Gunners. “I feel at ease in the league. I’ve had a not bad first season and a second that was mainly good. I hope to do even better,” he added. “I’m progressing from year to year, in the image of the team that plays a polished game. “I still have two years on my contract but we are in negotiations to extend it.” Press Association
By Ossian ShineLONDON, England (Reuters) – This year’s Wimbledon singles tennis champions will receive £2.2 million each – a hike of £200 000 for both the men’s and women’s winner, organisers said yesterday.Tournament chiefs unveiled the increased winners’ cheques among a larger total prize pot of 31.6 million, up from £28.1 million last year.The bigger pot benefits players throughout the draw, with first-round singles losers set to walk away from the All England Club with £35 000.In percentage terms, first-round losers benefit the most — their prize being almost 17 percent higher than last year, reflecting the club’s commitment to the lower reaches of tennis.“We are proud of the important leadership role that Wimbledon plays locally, nationally, and internationally, and are committed to continuing to invest to secure the future of The Championships, and of our sport, for the years to come,” club chairman Philip Brook said.The winners’ cheques for the men’s and women’s singles have doubled since 2011.Brook said the club had “taken into account” exchange rates, but that the ‘Brexit effect’ had not been instrumental in their calculations.“Exchange rates go up and go down over time,” he said. “In my time with the club I think all four grand slam tournaments have led on prize money, and now the U.S. dollar is particularly strong.”The pound has fallen 14 percent against the dollar since Britain’s vote to leave the European Union last June.The U.S. Open has yet to announce its 2017 prize money while this month’s French Open recently announced that total prize money had risen 12 percent from last year’s levels to 36 million euros (£30.4 million).Both the men’s and women’s singles winners at Roland Garros will receive a cheque for 2.1 million euros.The grass-court grand slam tournament takes place on the fringes of south-west London July 3-16 – the latest start for the tournament since 1895. Organisers said work to install a roof on Court One — the second-biggest showcourt after Centre Court – was on schedule and would be completed in time for the 2019 championships.
18 January 2013 Sport Minister Fikile Mbalula has called on sport fans around South Africa to take to the streets with their flags and blow their vuvuzelas at noon today to welcome the teams and spectators for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon). From offices, factory floors, farms and various work stations across the country, Mbalula urged South Africans to come out any time from 12:00 to 13:00, armed with vuvuzelas, whistles, horns, flags and ululations, to show their support for Bafana Bafana – who play the tournament opening match against Cape Verde on Saturday. Bafana Bafana, joined by the Bafana class of ’96 and national rugby and cricket players, will be in Sandton, Johannesburg to mark the vuvuzela moment. “Take your valuable lunch time from your busy schedule to blow a vuvuzela in your Bafana Bafana jersey as we welcome the sons and daughters of Africa in the land of our forebears. The land of Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo, Charlotte Maxeke, Helen Joseph,” said Mbalula. Mbalula called on the country to unite in the same spirit of the 2010 World Cup. “Please let’s show our pride and patriotism as we did in 2010, when the football frenzy of the World Cup hit our shores. The beat is truly and indeed within our African veins as we traverse with our troops wearing our Bafana Jersey and hoisting our flag high and singing to the top of our voices.” Source: SANews.gov.za

Virat Kohli is the greatest batsman in modern day cricket and is in line to break most of Sachin Tendulkar’s records but there was a time when his childhood coach had to keep a strict eye on a rather naughty boy who loved mimicking and binged on biryani and kebabs.Recently, Virat Kohli became the first Indian captain to win a Test series in Australia. He led India to history again, winning a three-match ODI series in Australia before overseeing a series win in New Zealand.Kohli also swept all three major ICC awards after a stunning 2018 in all formats. He currently has 39 ODI hundreds and 25 Test hundreds and could one day become the second man after Sachin Tendulkar to score 100 international hundreds.However, Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma said his ward needed extra attention growing up. Virat went to Sharma’s academy when he was 9-and-half-years old and the sharp-eyed Sharma immediately realised his potential. But there was plenty of work to be done.”Virat was a very naughty boy. He was always mischievous and loved mimicking. He used to love partying and dancing,” Sharma told Sportswallah. “And then came a stage when I had to take extra care of him especially when they won the (under-19) World Cup and he was signed up by RCB.”That was the moment I had to pay extra attention but after that he has matured enough. He has got a brilliant head on his shoulders and I need to say he is a very good student of the game,” Sharma said.advertisementVirat Kohli is a self-confessed foodie but he is today among the fittest athletes in the world. Recently, he turned vegan and his diet is a master-class for sports stars who want to succeed for long periods.But Kohli wasn’t always like that. Sharma recalled a young boy who loved feasting on biryani and kebabs.”The first time he was dropped, he felt very bad about it. So he thought ‘I have to work hard and that place belongs to me.’ For that he worked very hard. Initially, he as a complete foodie. He used to love non-veg food like tikkas and biryani. A typical Punjabi boy. He would get food for me at the academy too and say ‘sir don’t bring your lunch today, I’ll bring kebabs and biryani for you. We will eat together.’ He used to love it,” Sharma said.Virat Kohli will next be seen in action in the limited-overs series against Australia starting February 24.
