LOCAL MP IS IN THE FRAME TO WIN VOTES
A local MP is
one of the hottest shots in the area, not for their political
achievements but for the quality of their photos.
Pictures taken by Crosby MP Claire Curtis-Thomas have been showcased
in a prestigious Westminster exhibition, for the annual Jessops
Parliamentary Photography Competition.
Over 100 photographs
were on display in the exhibition, revealing the world our peers and
politicians see during their duties or on their travels. They
range from the challenging and the spectacular to the cheerful and
the strange, yet each shows a unique glimpse of life as a lord... or
on the backbenches.
Among those going for the Commons vote are Alan Duncan with ‘Praying
Mantis’, David Heath with ‘Fatburger’ and Tom Levitt with
‘Me and My Cowshed’, while Tim Loughton, Austin Mitchell and
Nick Raynsford are also putting themselves in the frame. The
Upper House has come in with some serious competition, including
Lord Crathorne’s ‘Daily Hindu ritual on the banks of the Ganges’
and Lord Greenway’s ‘Maple Leaves’.
7 successful Judges Choice entries win a £100 bursary, which is
donated on their behalf to Jessops' adopted charity CLIC Sargent,
which provides care and financial support for children and their
families living with cancer and leukaemia. The Judges Choices
are now canvassing votes from members of the public at
www.jessops.com/parliament, in a bid to be number 1
in the opinion polls. The people's favourite wins a further £100 for
CLIC Sargent, with one lucky voter selected at random receiving £100
in Jessops gift vouchers.
A calendar featuring a dozen of the best photographs can be bought
on Jessops’ website, with proceeds going straight to the charity.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:- "PRINCE’S TRUST MEANS BUSINESS ACROSS THE
"AS The Prince’s Trust celebrates the 25th anniversary of its
Business Programme, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to
our volunteer business mentors, staff, supporters and donors who
have made it possible for thousands of disadvantaged young people to
launch enterprises and boost the North West’s economy.
In the last 5 years alone, The Prince’s Trust Business Programme has
helped 2,297 young people from across the region to set up in
business through low-interest loans, grants and mentoring for up to
3 years with access to a new Business Club launched last week. We
plan to support a further 336 before the year ends.
58% of them are still trading into their third year, which compares
favourably to the national average. This is despite the fact that
the young people we help have struggled at school, have been in
care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.
We have shown that by working together to invest in our young
people, we can add real value to the communities we live in and to
our region’s economy." Jacqueline Tyler, North West Regional Director, The Prince’s Trust,
