Special delivery Oyster protection Christmas kindness Santa dash
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.
