This, she says, is her legacy, as she asks what the viewer’s will be. The campaign was created in-house with guidance from the agency Consider Creative. It follows Save the Children’s first ever legacies TV campaign, which launched in 2017. The new creative launches this month, with further digital and TV content rolling out in September.The advert shows the work that Alice undertakes every day to make sure babies are delivered safely. Since Save the Children built the White Plains Clinic in 2014 funded by a Capital Appeal by UK supporters, it says, Alice is able to help save many more women and babies in her area. The hundreds of babies who are named after her range from two days to 30 years old. Save the Children is hoping viewers will be inspired by Alice’s story and consider leaving a gift in their will.Gifts in wills contributed over £20million to Save the Children’s funding in 2017. Jonathan Jacques, Head of Legacies at Save the Children, said: “Save the Children has been saving children’s lives around the world since 1919 and every year the money our generous supporters leave in their wills helps us to make sure children are healthy and well-fed, protected from harm and receiving a good education.“We wanted to tell a really unique and engaging story that our supporters could get behind.

David Raleigh Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Print Linkedin Mid West Simon chief executive Jackie Bonfield at the Simon food bank.FAMILIES going hungry in Limerick is intergenerational with a perpetual gap between the rich and the poor – the haves and the have nots.And, according to Mid West Simon chief executive Jackie Bonfield, a person doesn’t have to be lying in the gutter, or begging on the street, to be classified as poor.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A food bank, run by Jackie Bonfield and her team on the Ballysimon Road, fed 6,380 families and individuals last year. This included 3,182 children.She says there has been a rise working to middle class homesteads receiving food bags with each family getting a ration of peas, beans, pasta, cereal, and tea bags.“Coffee would be a luxury item,” Jackie Bonfield says, and therefore is not included.The mother-of-two, who commutes to her office from Kilrush, paints a bleak picture of the situation in Limerick and beyond into Clare and Tipperary.“Limerick would be one of the worst areas in the country for poverty. What we are also seeing here is that there is a lot of hidden poverty.”There is a growing number of families turning to moneylenders which can bring even more problems, depending on who the lender is.“There is poverty in places where people aren’t necessarily seeing it.Poverty is when you can’t have a roast meal once a week; or you don’t have two pairs of shoes; or you don’t have warm clothes. There are people in this city who don’t have two pairs of good shoes, nor a warm coat to put on when the weather gets bad, nor fuel to turn on the heating.”The hidden homeless are families and individuals who may have a job, a car, a home, but who may be struggling with a mountain of debt and can’t afford to put dinner on the table.“There are people turning on one light in their home because they can’t afford electricity while others are living in emergency accommodation.“The amount of people looking for food is staggering. Four hundred families and 174 individuals receive food bags every two weeks from Simon. An extra 2,000 mouths were added to the register for July, August, September last year.For the same period this year, Jackie Bonfield and her crew expect to be “inundated” with further registrations from parents crippled by back to school costs.“It always goes up at this time,” says Jennifer Walsh, who organises food deliveries to families, individuals, and breakfast clubs.She found “it was a huge shock at the start” when she joined Simon Mid West two years ago.“Nothing prepares you for the poverty that is out there,” she says.The Simon workers are continuously “reassessing” the register to eliminate abuse of the system but even then the food bank, which is funded by government, is struggling to cope with the demand.Often, stock is critically low, which Walsh describes as “frightening”.“It is because we could run out of food,” Bonfield adds.They’d like to see a “social grocery” replace the current food bank system.Bonfield explains: “Instead of people being given a black bag — which is very disrespectful in a way – they would be able to come into a closed shop environment and pick the products they want. They wouldn’t be taken stuff they didn’t want or use, and they would feel they would have choice, and use their own shopping bag, which would also mean we wouldn’t be buying black bags which would save us about €9,000 a year”.The current system is subsidised by the European Union, yet, “there is no other funding to run the food bank – so the food, the warehouse, the forklift hire, the black bags are all paid for through donations from the public.“We operate on a very tight budget and depend on volunteers. We also provide training and work opportunities for people convicted by the courts, and who who may be struggling to find a job,” Bonfield explains.And she has put out a call for a premises in Limerick to provide a base for the “social grocery”.Simon is also providing a tenancy support service and housing scheme for people struggling to stay in their homes.It provides accommodation in 60 properties throughout the region for families and individuals and it runs an emergency hub accommodation service on the Dublin Road, providing ten families with an extended B&B.Last year Bonfield piloted a fund for European Aid (FEAD) to the most deprived through the Department of Social Protection which has since been rolled out nationally and provides educational tools for vulnerable children.“We’ve got 4,500 student packs coming to us in the next couple of weeks – rulers, copybooks, folders, calculators, highlighters, memory sticks and water bottles.Despite the daily challenges, Bonfield remains committed to the task at hand.She sums up the dreadful experience of those who look like they’re living within their means, but are actually living on the margins, cramped together in a hotel room or not being able to invite their friends to their accommodation for their birthday.“As much as the hubs are better than the hotels and the B&Bs, they still don’t allow for an individual’s personal development; to allow for the family to be a proper family, and to be able to fight, to love, to do whatever they need to do.“Sometimes you don’t want to look at your children for an hour or a day, and sometimes you just want to spoil one child because they’ve had a tough day at school. These families don’t get to do that.” Limerick on Covid watch list Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat TAGSCommunityLimerick City and CountyMid West SimonNews WhatsApp Email Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?

The petition filed in public interest avers that the outbreak of COVID-19 has caused widespread disruptions in the lives of Indian citizens at home and abroad, especially those stranded in Gulf countries. It points out that Indians visiting Gulf nations on work/ tourist visas are now stuck there in the absence of basic amenities; particularly those pertaining to essential healthcare requirements as well as household needs. As per the Petitioner, many Indians are stuck in a room with those who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 while many others are inhabiting labor camps that are densely populated without any adequate ventilation, thereby rendering any kind of social distancing, nearly impossible. It is further averred that pregnant women, immune-compromised people with several pre-existing medical conditions such as blood pressure, diabetes, respiratory disease and children are also stranded there. Thus, he has urged the court to direct the Respondents to establish a specialized team to identify the Indian citizens stranded in GCC Nations who require to be evacuated immediately, and take apposite steps accordingly. To this end he has proposed that the government be directed to lift the ban on international flights and grant of specific approval for these special flights as there are many among the stranded population, who are desirous of returning to India at their own cost & expense, be it through commercial flight or through a chartered flight that maybe arranged by some operators Inter alia, Raghavan has submitted that several airlines have expressed their willingness to ensure the safe return of Indians stranded in GCC Nations alongside the assurances given by these Gulf nations to support the operation of flights to India. However, it is submitted, that due to the national lockdown and shutting down of the Indian airspace, all these efforts have proved futile. He asserted, “The fundamental rights of citizens, particularly those under Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution of India stands severely jeopardised as a result of the travel embargo issued through a series of travel advisories imposed on the return of citizens. An epidemic of this magnitude would impose a positive duty on the State as the parens 21 patriae to ensure the safety and well-being of all citizens, including those residing outside the territorial borders of the nation.” Reference is also made to Sections 36 of the Disaster Management Act which obligates the Central Government to provide for evacuation, rescue, temporary shelter or other immediate relief to its citizens for the purposes of responding promptly and effectively to any threatening disaster. “Indians continue to be stranded despite several gracious offers being made by airline operators to assist their return from the GCC Nations,” the Petitioner added. In this backdrop, the Petitioner has sought for: Determination of the total number of citizens who are stranded & facing difficulties in GCC Nations and who are wanting to return to IndiaPrioritising of urgent cases who need immediate repatriation like pregnant women, those suffering from serious illnesses, immune-compromised, those who have to attend to any calamity in the family in India, those whose visas have expired, those who have lost their jobs, those whose sponsorship is being cancelled, those who have been tested negative for COVID-19 etc.; Financial assistance from the Union of India to ensure smooth repatriation for majority of those citizens, since most of them are engaged in blue collar jobs with daily/manual wages and would thus, not be in a financial position to fund their travel back home;Government initiatives to bring back desirous Indians stranded in GCC Nations may be ensured either through airways or waterways wherever possible;Lifting of ban on international flights and grant of specific approval for these special flights as there are many among the stranded population, E who are desirous of returning to India at their own cost & expense, be it through commercial flight or through a chartered flight that maybe arranged by some operators;Ensuring timely decision-making with regard to grant of permission for airlines willing to assist the Government in ensuring the return of Indians stranded in GCC Nations;Deputation of a medical team to GCC Nations to ensure adequate medical assistance is provided to those who are infected by COVID-19 with due regard to the laws and regulations of such nations. The Petitioner has further suggested certain other measures which may be kept in mind to ensure the safety of these Indians upon return, as also to ensure the safety of others around them: Corona Rapid Test facility at all international airport checkpoints and other verification measures to ascertain whether or not the arriving passengers are carriers;Mandatory quarantining of such individuals who eventually return, as per the relevant protocols to ensure that they don’t hamper the efforts taken by India;Since it is the summer vacation, colleges and schools in the vicinity of the respective airports be converted into temporary quarantine centres for the people returning from abroad, in order to curtail the spread of COVID-19 to the local population;Provision of ‘pay-and-use quarantine facility’ to accommodate those who are desirous of availing the same at their own cost & expense who can afford the same. Said option can be opted by the passenger during the time of booking their ticket. The petition has been filed through Advocate A. Karthik.

With gas and electricity prices soaring by 40% in 2005 and potentially more increases on the way, the need to be energy-efficient has never been greater. By investing in the right equipment and making simple adjustments to the way it is used and maintained, businesses could see big savings on their energy bills. This is of particular importance for refrigeration equipment as it uses energy all day, every day. Buying an energy-efficient fridge and/or freezer could cut carbon dioxide emissions produced by up to 228kg a year and save up to 70% in energy usage – meaning it is not only environmentally responsible but will also save money. Key features and new technology to look out for when choosing refrigeration units include:Hydrocarbons – these offer zero ozone depletion potential and very low global warming potential, unlike other standard refrigerantsECA approval – equipment that is registered to the government’s Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme meets stringent standards on energy efficiency. Anyone purchasing equipment from the list will be entitled to a 100% tax relief on their investment in the first yearSmart temperature control – refrigerators with this device fitted will automatically adapt to cope with how they are being used (for example, frequent door openings) and use only as much energy as they needAutomatic fan cut-out – fans stop working when the door is open to avoid wasting energySelf-closing doors – to ensure that doors are not left ajar and energy is not wastedIt is also important to have existing equipment regularly serviced, as a poorly maintained and serviced refrigerator can use the energy of two to five refrigerators. A blocked condenser can increase power consumption by 23% and a faulty door seal by 11%. Service engineers can recommend how often equipment should be serviced as this depends on usage.HACCPAt the same time, the industry is experiencing the biggest changes in food safety laws for 15 years, due to new Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) legislation, which came into effect on January 1, 2006. HACCP is an internationally recognised system of food safety management. The new legislation requires that all food businesses, regardless of size, put in place, implement and maintain food safety management procedures based on HACCP principles.The 2006 HACCP is more flexible than previous legislation in place and this has met with a positive reception in the industry. Already, notable food safety improvements in knowledge, attitude and behaviour have resulted. Foster Refrigeration has guides on energy efficiency and HACCP.
