‘Term Time says NO to Violence’
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
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
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.
