Letters to the Editor:- "Action for Blind People"

"IN the past Action for Blind People Merseyside has always enjoyed fantastic support from your readers enabling us to provide a range of services to blind and partially sighted people.

Action for Blind People and Alliance & Leicester have joined up to raise vital funds and awareness for our services for blind and partially sighted people.

Until the end of February, you will be able to support the charity by purchasing a specially-made pin badge from your local branch in Merseyside. There will be a choice of five badges of the current stars from the Nickelodeon cartoon ‘All Grown Up’, formerly the Rug-Rats. Featuring Angelica, the bossy but popular blonde; Chuckie, famous for his square-rimmed glasses; Tommy, a purple-haired science whizz; Susie, talented singer and envy of Angelica; and a fifth badge with all four characters together. Each badge will be available for a suggested donation of £1.

By working with Alliance & Leicester to promote the ‘All Grown Up’ pin badge campaign we can continue to fund local services for visually impaired people in Merseyside.

Thank you for your continued support."

Letters to the Editor:- "Animals in our throw away society!"

"EARLIER this month, 2 hamsters were found thrown out with the rubbish. Such shameful lack of responsibility and disregard for life is unfortunately a growing trend. The Alternative Animal Sanctuary has found that the numbers of creatures brought to us by owners who have simply 'changed their mind', or their 'circumstances', is growing. Most animals live for years, not just weeks or months, and taking one on is a big commitment. But it's not just small animals who suffer.

Troy is one of around 30 horses in our care. As a young animal he was badly abused, regularly beaten and made to jump so much his owners had to give him painkillers to keep him performing. He has been badly affected psychologically and now suffers from chronic arthritis. To help ease his condition a heat lamp is desperately needed, at the cost of £3,000. As a registered charity, The Alternative Sanctuary relies completely on donations to feed, house and treat the animals in our care. If you can spare a donation, however large or small, you can help ease the pain for Troy - and the other animals who have been abused, neglected and abandoned."
