THE race is on to find local company employees who are prepared to run in this year’s Liverpool Corporate Cup 5K challenge and raise sponsorship for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, a charity which continues to search for a cure for muscle disease.  As part of its 2007 ‘Big Push’ appeal, the Regional Office of the charity is asking teams to enter the event and to get sponsored for running or to contact them for sponsorship forms if they have already entered. In return, everyone who raises funds can claim some great sportswear rewards for each member of the team.

Says Charles Horton, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign Regional Fundraising Manager:- “We need as many teams as possible to enter the Liverpool Corporate Cup 5K challenge race and raise sponsorship if we are going to beat this disease. It’s a great way to help others and help yourself to keep fit. Why not join our Big Push to give people with muscular dystrophy a chance in the future”.

The Liverpool Corporate Cup 5K challenge race/walk takes place on Wednesday 5 September 2007, starting at 7pm in Croxteth Park. Teams consist of 4 people employed by the same company, which must contain at least 1 female. In addition, families and friends who do not work for a company, but would like to take part, can enter a team into the Charity Shield division of the race. To enter the event to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, contact their Regional Office by sending an email to them.


BACK in January, Magnet issued a survey revealing the truth behind DIY. The results showed that 1 in 4 of us simply didn’t have a clue when it came to DIY and 1 in 5 Brits harboured a DIY disaster in their home.  In response to the research, the kitchen experts at Magnet launched a nationwide search to find the British kitchen most in need of a makeover. Magnet’s ‘Kitchen SOS’ aimed to find the most botched DIY kitchen in the UK and believe they may have just that in Liverpool.

After thousands of entries and a public vote, the list of destruction has been whittled down to just ten suspects and a local resident from Liverpool, is in the running to be named Britain’s Worst Kitchen.  Alison Moody, from Formby just out side Liverpool, stunned the judges and leaped straight into the top 10 after submitting images of her DIY kitchen crime scene. The kitchen, which pleads for Kitchen SOS help, comes complete with blood, sweat and tears and features a distinct lack of flair for design!

Alison, comments:- “It started out as such a small dream but things quickly deteriorated from there on. I soon found myself living and cooking in a war zone, it really is an absolute nightmare. And then of course, I was told about Magnet’s Kitchen SOS competition to which I knew this was the one for me. I’ve never won anything in my life but it looks as though my luck’s about to change!”

If successfully selected as the overall winner, Alison can expect to receive a brand new £10K kitchen, but this time fully fitted and installed by the kitchen expert, Magnet. Five runners-up will also receive a flipdown TV worth £473.90 – at least drawing their attention away from the kitchen itself.  Alison’s kitchen and the other 9 contestant’s nightmares are available for the world to view and you can see every mistake, accident, disaster and mishap at
