Professional Dog Trainer was in the Dog House
WELL Red Nose Day
always brings in some fun ideas, but this for a member of the West Lancs Canine
located at Mosside Farm, Formby, took their motto:- "We will train you to
train your dog" that step further... Emma Fraser, who is a Pet Carer at
Comforts spent 13 hours, locked in a dog
kennel, on Tuesday, 21 March 2017. The brave 37 year old, dog mad, single Mum,
said that it was:- "I'm a single mum of 3 children
and 2 dogs. I work for the company K9 Comforts that is linked with West Lancs
Canine Centre, where we specialise in dog training, dog agility, Doggy day care
and home boarding. To raise money for comic relief I have been in the Center's
dog kennels for a total of 13 hours . It was a very cold and a very long day at
that, but I hope it was worth it... I had hoped to make £500, but sadly I'm just
off my target. All the sponsorship money I have raised will go to the Red Nose
Day, Do Something Funny For Money appeal. So if anyone reading this who has not
yet donated, please take a look at the photos I have of my time in the dog house
via my Just Giving
Page. I did this fundraising event as I know
how important Comic Relief*
is, raising money to change countless lives, both here, in the UK and across the
World in Africa."

NHS staff in Liverpool deserve a better deal - says Women's Equality Party metro mayor candidate!
Morton, who is campaigning to be mayor of the Liverpool City Region, reacted
with anger to today's reports that senior NHS managers in the city have been
awarded pay rises of up to 50%.
Morton, the Women's Equality Party candidate for Liverpool Metro Mayor, said:-
"The Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group's (CCG) decision to award
grotesquely inflated pay rises to their senior team - their chairman Nadim
Fazlani's salary rose by £50,000 to £155,000 in 2014 to 2015; is unjustified and
grossly unfair. It is also gendered; women are hugely outnumbered in senior
positions in the NHS and across working life."
Morton added that the Government has set a target of a 1% pay rise for NHS
nurses, midwives and other healthcare workers this year.
Tabitha said:- "Women take up the majority of these roles, and are working
long hours for less and less reward, while senior pay continues to rise across
the NHS. As Mayor of the Liverpool City Region I will ensure equal numbers of
men and women are represented at senior level across the public and private
sector. And I will implement policies to enable women to contribute fully to our
region's economic growth, addressing unequal pay and the lack of opportunities
to progress their careers. Liverpool's metro mayor will have new powers to make
big changes in this region. I want to use those powers to help the women here to
Voting for the new Mayor of the Liverpool City
Region will take place on:- 4 Mar 2017. Areas able to vote in this
election will be the Halton, Knowsley,
