The British Red Cross has launched an appeal to help countries that have been significantly affected by Hurricane Sandy, including Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Cuba and the United States.
The storm has claimed the lives of at least 84 people, caused extensive flooding, damaged buildings and left thousands of people homeless across the Caribbean and United States.
Donate to the Hurricane Sandy Appeal
The Hurricane Sandy Appeal will cover numerous countries that have been affected by the recent disaster. In the unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent, any surplus funds will be used to help us prepare for and respond to other humanitarian disasters anywhere in the world.
The Oliver King Foundation – SADS
Responsible department: Office of the Leader of the House of Commons
We call on the Government to take action on Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS).
SADS can go on undetected, and is something which can affect people aged between 12 & 35 years old. It can be detected by simply having an ECG test.
The Oliver King Foundation was set up following the death of Oliver King, a 12 year old boy who died in Wavertree of SADS.
We call on the Government to introduce defibrillators to all public buildings by 2017, and provide staff with the appropriate training. We also call on the Government to offer all people aged between 12 & 35 a simple ECG test, which could reduce the current death rate of 12 young people a week.

On Friday, December 14th, a group of 8 of Liverpool fans will begin a walk from Hillsborough. This will be a journey that takes 28 hours and covers exactly 96 miles before arriving at lunchtime at the Hillsborough Memorial outside Anfield. As the straight route between the two locations is nearer 70 miles, a slightly different route has been chosen.
To show your support or get more information on how to get involved including the latest news about the event visit the dedicated website From The Kop.
Good luck to Everyone involved.
