A spectacular effort by:- community groups, schools, football fans, Liverpool City Council and residents will bring smiles to hundreds of faces this Christmas. In the run up to the festive season, Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson, announced he would be donating ₤10,000 from his Hope Fund to help needy families enjoy Christmas dinner. North, Central and South Liverpool foodbanks have each given out vouchers to families for fresh meat and vegetables across their centres. At the same time an army of volunteers have been hard at work putting together special Christmas hampers to be sent out to families in need in time for the big day. The effort has seen support from a range of local groups including:- Fans Supporting Foodbanks, the Trussell Trust and local ward Councillors. It means hundreds of families in difficult financial circumstances will receive something extra on Christmas Day. In Everton, children from Our Lady Immaculate Primary School joined in the 5 day operation to get all the hampers out. The community minded pupils formed a human chain to get the hundreds of hampers out to the foodbank vans ready for delivery.

Letters to the editor:- "I was involved in a hit and run in Southport"

"ON the 17 November 2018, at around 22:20pm, myself and my partner were driving up Stamford Road, Southport, when I was turning right, at the Mini Roundabout, onto Guildford Road. The roundabout was totally clear, there was no cars that I needed to give way to. I emerged onto the roundabout with my indicator on, to turn right, and as I was ¾ around the roundabout and due to come off onto Guildford road when a BMW X6, registration X6RGY, came flying down Moss Road and collided with my car (a Citroen c2). Due to the front left impact, my car's entire front end was ripped off, my engine block was torn out and my bumper was halfway down Guildford Road. My airbags went off straight away and my car was smoking inside and out. Both me and my partner found it really hard to breathe. When my car had finally stopped spinning and hit the curb, we realised we needed to get out of the car quickly and safely. We were very fortunate to have an off duty Police Officer, who witnessed the collision, at hand. He was very helpful and efficient in contacting emergency services. Police, Fire and Paramedics attended the scene. My Citroen was a total loss, it was my 1st ever car and it's gone because it was a write off. As for the other driver, we have no idea who they were or if they will ever face any consequences for what they did. They abandoned their car and ran away on foot. Police located their car, but not the driver. Myself and my partner are now working towards recovery. The Police are still investigating the collision and I just hope we will get the answers we need to find closure from this terrifying ordeal. If anybody saw anything or heard anything or lives close to the Mini Roundabout and have any information, please contact Merseyside Police." Aimee.

Millennials are struggling the most with workplace stresses

WORKPLACE happiness comes least to millennials, according to new research, with many young adults who are focusing on carving out their career paths taking home the stresses of work.  The survey of 1,001 UK adults carried out by 1 of the UK's leading healthcare companies, Cygnet Jobs, has revealed that almost 73%) of 25 to 35 year olds have recently taken workplace stresses home, and in fact as many as 62% of workers, within this age bracket say they've felt sleep deprived, due to career stress, in the past. An astonishing 1 in 5 (22%) people in this age bracket say they noticed they were even losing weight because of this.  In contrast, only 9% of those aged 55+ said they've recently taken home workplace stress, suggesting that workplace happiness becomes more important for Brits as they age.  According to the survey, 33% of UK workers felt the need to prove themselves in their chosen career path, with an incredible 64% of the 25 to 35 year old workers, surveyed, saying workplace stresses affect their sleep. Rowan Marriott, Head of Resourcing, at Cygnet Jobs, said:- 'The research just highlights how many people in the UK, especially those aged between 25 and 55 are overworked and stressed. With work affecting their sleep, those people will soon become regularly irritable and potentially unwell. Most of us have the odd stressful day at work, but the long term effects of being unhappy in the workplace can be very negative to someone's mental and physical health."

Percentage of UK adults who say they regularly take work related stress home:-

Age 18 to 25 = 19%.

Age 25 to 35 = 73%.

Age 35 to 45 = 64%.

Age 45 to 55 = 62%.

Age 55+ = 9%.
