Miss Southport to Nurse on the frontline

FORMER Miss Southport 2016, Chloe Nicole Brown, is now in her 3 year as a health care student, training as a Nurse, at Edge Hill University. She is now 1 of many students in their final 6 months (and in some areas in their 2nd and 1st half of their 3rd years) to be asked to finish their degrees whilst caring for patients on the NHS frontline response to covid-19. Also, Bhasha Mukherjee, Miss England 2019 has decided to hang up her crown and return to work as an NHS Doctor during the Coronavirus pandemic. Both of you an the many others within the NHS and support services like St John Ambulance deserve the recognition for their sacrifices and help. Please support them this Easter and in the future... Both Chloe and Bhasha are glowing examples of all that is good in our world, beautiful, brave hero's. Good luck and please keep safe!

LCR Cares Grants total now more than ₤160,000

ANOTHER ₤86,000 worth of funding from the LCR Cares COVID-19 Community Fund has been allocated in grants on Thursday, 9 April 2020, to keep the Liverpool City Region's charities and organisations providing vital services to the community. The total given to community organisations now stands at more than ₤160,000. 19 organisations ranging from Foodbanks to children's play centres have been given the grants to help them continue delivering food and care packages to vulnerable people, telephone and online services providing counselling and helping reduce isolation, as well as debt management and financial advice during this difficult time. LCR Cares was launched by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram in partnership with registered charity Community Foundation for Merseyside, with the aim of raising ₤1million to support local community and voluntary organisations on the frontline of helping the City region's communities cope with the impact of Coronavirus. Going into the Easter weekend, the fund now stands at nearly ₤500,000 after generous donations including:- ₤5000 from former Liverpool FC Vice Captain Jamie Carragher's 23 Foundation, ₤50,000 from Liverpool City Region based retailer Home Bargains, and a further ₤123,250 from the National Emergencies Trust, as well as scores of smaller donations from individuals.

Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said:- "We've been able to get more than ₤160,000 out into the community at a time when people need it most so that organisations at the frontline can support the most vulnerable. I'm humbled but not surprised by the amazing work these groups are doing in our communities. I'd encourage everyone to give what they can, if they are able, to help continue this work during these tough times."

Liverpool's Micah Foodbank was one of today's recipients. Its Executive Director Paul O'Brien said:- "At Micah Liverpool we are providing emergency food parcels to those who are in poverty and those affected by the Corona outbreak, with the help of the LCR Cares grant we are able to continue to support those that are most in need for the next 12 weeks and beyond. Thank you!"

The Venus Project in Sefton also received an award. Chief Executive Lorraine Webb said:- "I would like to express our sincere gratitude to LCR Cares and all who donated to the fund. Being able to provide emergency provisions to local families at this worrying time makes a world of difference to their lives and wellbeing."

Details on how to donate are on the Combined Authority's website. Search "LCRCares" on website. Community organisations can apply for grants by visiting:- CFMerseyside.Org.UK.

Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram appeals for people to stay home and help beat the Coronavirus this Easter

LIVERPOOL City Region Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram has appealed to people to stay at home this Easter weekend to help stop the spread of the virus and bring the crisis to a swifter end. Speaking in a video message ahead of what would normally be a key holiday weekend of family gatherings and outdoor leisure activities, Mayor Rotheram has appealed to people to not let 'corona complacency,' set in and please stay home and only make absolutely essential journeys.

Steve Rotheram said:- "The Coronavirus poses a challenge unlike anything ever seen in modern Britain. You've heard the message many times to stay home, stay safe, save lives But it's probably more important than ever; to reinforce that 'life saving' message; as we enjoy the Bank Holiday. It's the only occasion I can remember when everyone's answer to the question:- 'where did you go over the Easter break?' should be exactly the same:- 'I stayed home and saved lives.' I've been really impressed with most people's behaviour so far in following Public Health England advice. The Weather might be changing, but our discipline has to remain the same. Don't let 'Corona Complacency' set in. This virus doesn't discriminate, the Prime Minister's fight for health proves that, our NHS and frontline workers are doing their bit; you have to do yours... Stay home, stay safe, save lives."
