Spe­cial de­liv­ery Oys­ter pro­tec­tion Christ­mas kind­ness Santa dash

First News - - Home News -

A very spe­cial teddy bear was flown 300 miles home af­ter his owner left him at Ed­in­burgh Air­port. Af­ter four-year-old Sum­mer’s par­ents (from Orkney) re­alised she’d lost Teddy, they put out an ap­peal on so­cial me­dia. A Lo­ganair cabin crew mem­ber spot­ted the ap­peal and the miss­ing bear was found. Teddy was then flown from Ed­in­burgh to Kirkwall – even be­ing given his own seat – be­fore be­ing re­united with Sum­mer. Plans have been sub­mit­ted for four new pools where threat­ened Lough Foyle oys­ters can breed. The pools would be built at an un­used site in Muff. Num­bers of the lo­cal oys­ters have dropped dra­mat­i­cally in the last 100 years. Winchester’s Christ­mas lights were turned on by Big Is­sue seller Kev Col­lick, af­ter an on­line cam­paign by res­i­dents. Winchester’s Busi­ness Im­prove­ment Dis­trict picked Kev af­ter see­ing hun­dreds of nice mes­sages about him on­line. They said the event raised thou­sands for home­less char­i­ties. A sea of San­tas will be de­scend­ing on Clapham Com­mon on 3 De­cem­ber for the Lon­don Santa Dash. The event is in aid of Great Or­mond Street Hos­pi­tal Chil­dren’s Char­ity, and peo­ple run­ning the 5k and 10k cour­ses will raise vi­tal money for se­ri­ously ill chil­dren.
