Dodge, skip and jump to join in
I AM urging schools to take part in a sponsored Skipathon or game of Ultimate Dodgeball in aid of the fight against heart disease.
These events promote the importance of maintaining a healthy heart through regular exercise whilst raising funds for the BHF’s lifesaving work into the fight against heart disease.
The scheme also allows schools and youth groups to keep 20% of the money they have raised, which they can put towards new equipment and resources to benefit their children.
Last year, BHF’s school events raised over an amazing £711,221. This year, we want to top this total and with your help we can.
Heart and circulatory conditions are responsible for nearly 15,000 deaths in the East each year, that’s over 40 people every single day.
We are asking people of the East to sign up today and help the BHF to continue to save lives.
To find out more and to sign-up, visit bhf.org.uk/schools-event mainland UK and support London Mayor,
Boris Johnson MP who wishes to be able to use them in exceptional circumstances as anti riot devices.
They have been used for this purpose in Belfast and Germany, etc. and, therefore, why not in London?
Unfortunate injuries tend to occur on all sides when serious riots happen; I do not recall injuries being caused especially by the intervention in Belfast of these machines.
All possible means – within the law – should be used to bring order to our streets at times of severe unlawful rioting!
The shocking rioting that occurred in South London relatively recently (without going into the complex situation which sparked it) was taken by many as an excuse to attack the police, commit damage, looting and arson on a large scale thereby ruining many businesses and also the torching of domestic accommodation!
What about the protection and help of innocent citizens?
Persons who set out to riot and cause mayhem know what they are getting into and they should not be surprised if all available means of protecting the public at large are used against them.
