Revitalise Sandpipers marks National Paralympic Day with accessible sports day

SOUTHPORT centre's day of fun coincides with Anniversary Games at Olympic Stadium As Team GB's Paralympians including Hannah Cockroft and David Weir competed once more in the Olympic Stadium during the Anniversary Games, the Revitalise Sandpipers respite holiday centre in Southport celebrated National Paralympic Day with a sports themed day of fun on Sunday, 26 July 2015.  Disabled guests at the centre enjoyed a day long programme of accessible competitions and sporty fun, including Boccia, Table Tennis, Basketball and Swimming, also sport based Wii Games and other accessible activities. The day culminated fittingly with the awarding of medals and a traditional closing ceremony. Sandpipers is one of three accessible UK centres run by the national charity Revitalise. The centre provides respite holidays, with 24 hour nursing care on call and personal support, for disabled people and carers, together with a wide range of accessible activities and excursions.

Help to Buy Show comes to the City

THE 1st ever Help to Buy Show Liverpool is set to take place at the BT Convention Centre, on Saturday 5 September and will connect potential buyers in Southport with all the information they need to purchase an affordable home.

Following on from the successful Help to Buy Show Manchester which took place at Manchester Central earlier this year and saw nearly 1000 people attend, the government appointed agent for Help to Buy North West, Plus Dane, will host the event.

Help to Buy is a government scheme to make home-ownership more accessible. The Help to Buy equity loan scheme and Mortgage Guarantee scheme make it possible to buy a new build home with just a 5% deposit, and both schemes are open to 1st time buyers and second steppers.

Over 390 homes have been purchased in Sefton under the scheme since 2013.

There will be 30 exhibitors at the Help to Buy Show Liverpool, offering legal and financial advice. In addition, representatives from housing developers will be on hand with information about their latest projects in the North West area, such as Redrow, which owns a new development in the village of Banks, consisting of 3 and 4 bed homes in the popular location between Southport and Preston.

Sandy Kelly, head of Help to Buy North West says:- "We're really pleased to bring the next Help to Buy Show to Liverpool. We hope to build on the success of the Manchester show and provide more help to hopeful homeowners across the North West region.  The show really is a unique opportunity for prospective buyers to be able to speak to a range of advisers in the same room about purchasing a new home. Visitors will get the chance to meet financial advisers, legal representatives and agents from different housing developments to find out more about Help to Buy and the process of buying a house."

To date, Help to Buy has helped nearly 94,000 people take their first step on the property ladder and has had a particularly positive impact in the North West. Sandy then added that:- "It's brilliant that nearly 94,000 people have been made homeowners through the Help to Buy Scheme. Home ownership is a dream for many people and the Help to Buy Show Liverpool is a key way of spreading the message of how prospective buyers can get closer to that dream."

People wishing to attend the show should register online for their free ticket  online.
