Rice Lane Infants and Nursery strut their stuff for British Red Cross

PUPILS at Rice Lane Infants and Nursery in Liverpool have created a fashion show and unique t-shirt designs to raise money for the Red Cross Hundred2Hundreds campaign.  The Walton school has a history of winning enterprise competitions, previously receiving the top prize at:- 'Global Entrepreneurship Congress 2012.'  On 24 June 2015  their fundraising efforts seed funded by £100 from the British Red Cross ended with children under 7 years old giving professional catwalk models a lesson in walking and posing with hands on hips showing the latest in children's fashion tee shirts, raising a total of £771.25.  British Red Cross project Hundred2Hundreds was introduced by Gary to Liverpool primary schools following his meeting with Tina Robinson (Senior Community Fundraiser; Merseyside) and Clare Henderson (Community Fundraising Manager; Northern Region) at his Thursday Business Clinic Drop-in session in Central Library. The Red Cross offered Gary £4000 for up to 40 enterprise projects (£100 each) delivered across Merseyside by young people. Rice Lane Infants and Juniors Primary School were the 1st to sign up and receive their £100 "seed fund".

Councillor Millar said:- "Working with the Red Cross we have a fantastic opportunity to inspire an enterprise culture in our schools. We can use the Hundred 2 Hundreds project to stimulate team work, create great business ideas, help our local communities and raise money for those most in need. Rice Lane's fashion show was professional and fun. Their fundraising summed up exactly why I love this amazing City."

Liverpool City Council's Mayoral Lead for Primary Schools, Councillor Lana Orr, said:- "This is an exciting opportunity for children in Merseyside to make a difference to the lives of people with the help of the British Red Cross while gaining new skills in literacy and numeracy. Well done to Rice Lane Infants and Nursery."

Tina Robinson, a senior community fundraiser for the British Red Cross in Merseyside, said:- "We are thrilled Councillor Millar has chosen to support the British Red Cross to encourage young people to develop their enterprise skills and raise vital funds to help people in crisis. If you have your own idea just like Rice Lane Infants and Nursery did and you think could sell with the support of your school please get in touch with Tina at the British Red Cross by calling:- 0151 702 5061 or send them an email."

Ruling could cut tenants' heating costs

LIVERPOOL City Council has won a property tribunal ruling which could see landlords throughout the country having to provide affordable heating for their tenants.  The case concerned a flat in a converted property over 100 years old in Botanic Road, Wavertree, owned by Mr. Anwar Hadi Kassim. Its heating consisted of panel convector heaters and a towel rail which operate on peak electrical tariff. The City Council served an improvement notice requiring the installation of either a gas fired central heating system, or modern fan assisted storage heating system Mr Kassim appealed against the notice to the 1st-Tier Tribunal Property Chamber (Residential Property. However, the Council successfully argued that the panel convector heaters and electric towel rail were so expensive to run compared with a gas central heating system or modern fan assisted storage heating system it would mean that the likely occupiers of the flat would not be able afford to use them as required. This would lead to the flat becoming unhealthily cold.  The Housing Act 2004 places a duty on councils to take enforcement action where what are known as Category 1 hazards; those that present a severe threat to health or safety of a resident; are identified. The tribunal agreed with the Council that the current heating provision at the flat resulted in a Category 1 hazard for excess cold and confirmed the improvement notice and the works which were needed to remedy it.  Councillor Frank Hont, cabinet member for housing, said:- "This is a very significant ruling. Fuel poverty is a real issue in the City and it has now been firmly established that landlords cannot rely on inefficient and expensive heating for tenants.  We want tenants in the private rented sector to be able to live in warm and safe accommodation and not have to have to choose between heating or eating.  This decision will have nationwide repercussions and will be welcomed by tenants throughout the country."
