Safer Sleep Week

A hospital trust has been supporting:- 'Safer Sleep Week'  which is aimed at preventing cot deaths.  Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the sudden and unexplained death of a baby where no cause is found.  Southport and Ormskirk Hospital Trust and other locations throughout the UK have given out leaflets and advice to visitors promoting safer sleep for babies.  While SIDS is rare, it can still happen and there are steps parents can take to help reduce the chance of this tragedy occurring. 'Safer Sleep Week' is The Lullaby Trust's national awareness campaign targeting anyone looking after a young baby.  The event ran from 14 March to 20 March 2016 and The Lullaby Trust and partners hope that is has increased parents knowledge about the importance of safer sleep. They also hope that it has made more people aware of how to reduce the chance of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).  For more information about safer sleep, visit:- LullaByTrust.Org.UK/Safer-Sleep.

These are a few 'Safer Sleep' tips:-

Keep baby away from smoke, before and after birth.

City Region Put baby in a cot, crib or moses basket to sleep; never fall asleep with them on a sofa or chair.

City Region Never fall asleep with baby after drinking or taking drugs / medication.

City Region Put baby to sleep on their back with their feet to the foot of the cot.

Search for a star comes to Southport

IF you want your chance to be a singing star the perfect opportunity is coming because a competition to find new singing talent will take place in Southport.  Southport's heat of this competition will take place this summer and entry is completely free. The 1st prize is a recording session at a professional studio.  "There's no age limit to the competition and we're looking for future stars so we hope the competition will appeal to the very young. We're hoping for entrants from aged 5 upwards." said Louise Nutter, one of the organisers of the competition.

The competition is being run by Charity Aid, a Northern based volunteer group. "We've raised well over £500,000 in the last 12 years holding singing events with music and singing as the focal point.  We're hoping that as well as unearthing a lot of musical talent the competition will raise at least £20,000 for charities we support. Several of our team are cancer patients so we mostly fundraise for the main national cancer charities. Our philosophy is never to turn away a charity which comes to us for help so we have fundraised for many small charities as well and we are always pleased if any new charities which haven't approached us would like to contact us. We organize charity nights at pubs and clubs and again would be pleased to speak to any pub or club which would like to hold a charity night. We do all this free of any charge."  explained Louise.

To enter all you need to do is text your full name, age and address to:- 07807 541 438 and someone will call you back to enter you into your local heat.
