Meet Flo

Can you help FloLike last year, she’s giving up spending her Christmas with her family. Instead she will share the day with residents who would normally spend Christmas alone over at St Nicholas Church Hall, Halewood.

Along with a couple of  other local volunteers, they will be arranging transport for their guests as well preparing and hosting a Christmas meal with celebrations to follow.

If you have any donations you think can help Flo and the team of local volunteers to make it a very special and memorable day for the 24 guests or so, do get in touch.

Flo has also asked if you know of a person who may be alone this Christmas  –  she would like to invite them along to the celebration. Please email us: hello@kulo.org.uk  with your contact details and we’ll pass to Flo.

Alcohol Concern’s Dry January campaign

dry-january1-636x243As part of local action to raise safe drinking awareness, Knowsley Council is getting behind Alcohol Concern’s Dry January campaign. They want to mobilise a community of organisations and individuals to champion the campaign and get involved. What better time to kick things off than during Alcohol Awareness Week (18th-24th November)?

Their aim, with your help, is to start a new conversation about alcohol – health risks, social problems, stigmas and taboos associated with alcohol. Your challenge is to encourage as many people as possible to go booze free for 31 days in January 2014.

It’s your chance to champion a campaign to help people lose weight, feel better, save money and make a difference for themselves and others in Knowsley.

They would like to use this event as a launch platform for your organisation to get involved by promoting the Dry January campaign: Kicking off from 10am, you’ll hear about the challenges we face in Knowsley around alcohol, learn all about the campaign, explore potential activities and receive all the resources you need to get the message out through your networks. You’ll also be able to meet and network with like-minded people keen to champion the campaign.

Join em’ and be part of this exciting and important opportunity for Knowsley.

If you can’t attend but what to be involved, or have any queries email us at knowsley@dryjanuary.net

Ps – Whilst places are limited, don’t forget to share this event with your colleagues and partner orgnisations (don’t assume they’ve been invited) – we need as many people to get involved as possible, to have a real and lasting impact in Knowsley.

Please note there are two sessions available on Monday 18th November 10 – 12pm at the Suites Hotel, Ribbler’s Lane Kirkby or Huyton Suite 1 – 3pm.
