‘Term Time says NO to Violence’

THIS year, Term Time Needs YOU! The National Schools Campaign Term Time is to take a stand against the impeding threat of violence young people in the UK face. The group will be marching through Liverpool City Centre on Sunday, 31 August 2008 and they would like to offer all readers of Southport & Mersey Reporter the opportunity to unite with us and join us in our quest to reduce violent crime in the UK.

The march involving hundreds of peaceful protestors will begin at 12.00hrs from The Liverpool Anglican Cathedrals Piazza, from here we shall walk peacefully along a designated route along Hope St, Mount Pleasant, Lime St, St Johns Lane, Whitechapel, Crosshall St, Dale St and Castle St, finishing at Derby Square at 14.00hrs.

The march is being held in the memory of all the lives lost due to senseless acts of violence this year. Nearly 14,000 people last year were taken to hospital for injuries caused by knives and other sharp weapons. 446 of whom were no older than 14.

The aim is to raise awareness on the growing issue and bring our community together and lead by example.Moreover Term Time is to lobby for tougher sentencing on violent crime and for the increase of funding for youth organisations, which offer alternatives for the youth of Liverpool.

Santa Claus is coming to town for cancer research

THIS Christmas may still be almost five months away, but that doesn’t stop some people from starting their Christmas planning. This year, why don’t you remember Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust (CCRT) on your gift list and sign up for the 5K “Santa Dash” in Liverpool City Centre. Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust is looking for fun-loving Santas to participate and help raise funds for the trust’s world-class cancer research.

The popular event, this year taking place on Sunday, 7 December 2008, sees 7,500 participants walking, jogging, running, skipping and hopping through the streets of the city, all dressed as Santa Claus.

Places are always filled quickly for the Santa Dash, so Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust (CCRT) is encouraging participants, who wish to raise funds to support its groundbreaking research work, to register as soon as possible before all the places are snapped up.

The entry fee for the event costs just £15 and runners without a Santa suit will be able to borrow one free of charge. On completion of the event, all participants receive a goody bag, a t-shirt and a commemorative medal from the event organisers. There is also a prize on offer for the best dressed Santa!

Sponsorship raised for CCRT will support the all-important research into cancer taking place at the J K Douglas Laboratories in Bebington, which aims to develop more effective treatments to counter individual cancers.

For information on registration and a sponsorship form for CCRT, please contact Jackie Roberts, Community Fundraising Co-ordinator at Clatterbridge Cancer Research Trust on 0151 343 4300 or via email.     To register online for your place please and follow the links for 2008 Santa Dash.
