 Liverpool John Moores student fights UK hunger with 52 mile fundraising challenge

STEPHEN Lea, an IT student at Liverpool John Moores University and intern at global animal health company, Elanco, is running 52 miles across Merseyside to raise funds for surplus food redistribution charity, FareShare.

Starting on Sunday, 3 July 2016, Stephen will take on 6 races, over 7 days, including the Southport ½ Marathon, the Thurstaston Multi Terrain 10k, and Sustrans Cycle Trail 10 Miler. The last leg of the Tour of Merseyside challenge is a 12 mile coastal run from New Brighton to Hoylake, and back again.

Stephen is hoping that his fundraising challenge will raise at least £300 for FareShare, to help the charity redistribute more good quality food that might otherwise go to waste, to charities and community groups that support vulnerable people across the UK.

Claudine Piggott, Corporate Development Manager at FareShare, said:- "We are delighted and grateful that Stephen is taking on this challenge to help FareShare tackle food waste and fight hunger across the UK. For every £1 that Stephen raises, FareShare is able to redistribute enough food for charities to serve up 4 nutritious meals, so we'd urge people to sponsor Stephen generously and wish him luck with all 6 events."

Mark Hall, Development Manager at FareShare Merseyside, added:- "Taking on the Southport ½ Marathon is quite something, let alone following that up with another 5 running events in the days that follow, so I'm full of admiration that Stephen is taking on this challenge to raise awareness and funds for FareShare's work, both here in Merseyside and across the UK."

Elanco, where Stephen is an intern, has been supporting FareShare since 2012. To date, the company's donations have enabled FareShare to redistribute enough food for more than 800,000 meals for people in need. The company's staff also volunteer regularly at FareShare's Regional Centres, where surplus from the food and drink industry is sorted and redistributed to local charities and community groups.

Stephen can be sponsored on his Just Giving page.

Police Netball Team are celebrating European glory

MERSEYSIDE Police Netball Team are celebrating European glory after winning this year's European Corporate Games, at Edge Hill University, in Liverpool. The team comfortably won the final, an all Police occasion against our counterparts from Staffordshire Police, after going unbeaten throughout the 2 day tournament. Companies taking part in the elite event included the NHS, Virgin Trains, Capital One, Asda, and the Chamber of Commerce. Joint team captain Leanne Lloyd said:- "This was a brilliant end to what has been another great season for the team, who have worked so hard all year."

Leanne's co-captain Victoria Williams said:- "The trophy cabinet is bursting with silverware, with the Liverpool League and Cup, Cheshire Elite, Lilly Cup and now the European Corporate games. We were also runners up in the Police Sport UK final, but you can't win them all… at least not this year!"
