Xmas Gifts and Bicycles for Children in Merseyside

PICTURED just before Christmas are the Radio City crew helping the Cash 4 Kids gang by sorting out toys for the Toy Appeal 2010. The Appeal helps thousands of children across Liverpool, every year by giving them presents for Christmas morning. Radio City's Cash for Kids Christmas Appeal 2010 was in association with ASDA who ran 'Secret Santa'. That let the public buy extra presents to help make a real difference to a local child this Christmas. More information about the appeal can be found via:-

LSTM Director Professor Janet Hemingway on 23 December 2010 commended the individuals and organisations that have helped to make 2010 a year of great achievement for LSTM in the midst of challenging economic conditions:- “We have attracted new talent and new research income which further embeds our position as a leading centre of excellence in tropical and international health. To do so in the prevailing economic conditions is a testament to the skill, knowledge and reputation of our staff that helps us to compete and win out in an increasingly competitive global market. The renewal of funding for the IVCC with a further US$50 million cements the role of our staff as leaders of large scale partnerships that are well placed to push forward the frontiers of science in our quest to improve the health of the developing world. I am delighted to report that the work we are doing is now supported by a research order book totalling a record £192 million. We have been able invest in new staff and attract further talent to LSTM, significantly expanding our parasitology research capability, particularly in the area of neglected tropical diseases, and have brought our headcount to nearly 300, including 19 Professors. I was also very pleased to note the expertise we have in evidence-based healthcare being acknowledged with our designation by the World Health Organisation as a Collaborating Centre for Evidence Synthesis for Infectious and Tropical Diseases. On the teaching side we have enhanced our provision of Masters programmes and expanded our portfolio of short courses. Our overseas teaching partnerships continue to flourish with the graduation of the second cohort of students at the Centre for Strategic Health Studies in Syria and the second year of the Diploma in Humanitarian Assistance being run in South Africa. We are completing a major refurbishment of our existing facilities and can look forward to further investments and growth in LSTM’s estate over the next three or four years, as we take forward our plans for the Institute of Translational Medicine. This will pull together the numerous elements within LSTM that translate evidence-based research into policy and practice within the health systems of individual countries. As we look forward to the future, I would like thank our numerous stakeholders and donors and praise the hard work and dedication of all of our staff, without whom we would be unable to deliver the breakthroughs and innovations that make an ongoing difference to the lives of so many people in the developing world.”
