first_imgMarie Curie Cancer Care and Tesco launch Charity of the Year partnership Howard Lake | 14 February 2008 | News Marie Curie Cancer Care and Tesco yesterday launched their Charity of the Year partnership at the flagship Tesco store in Kensington. The partnership, which lasts until 31 December 2008, will see Tesco staff committing to raise funds for their local Marie Curie nursing service.Under the theme of ‘Providing more nursing care at home’, Tesco staff and customers are aiming to raise £2.5 million to fund an additional 125,000 hours of nursing care for patients and their families in local communities across the UK.Throughout 2008, Tesco staff will be getting involved in fundraising events in store to raise funds for the charity.Tesco customers will also be able to raise funds by purchasing selected products in store where a donation is going directly to the charity.Products available now include:* Ten pence from every specially-labelled card purchased from the Tesco standard range of Greeting Cards will go to Marie Curie throughout the year* A donation from the purchase of fresh Speciality daffodils in store will go to the charity* A Marie Curie Cancer Care spring bouquet is available from Tesco.com with £2 of the purchase price going to Marie CurieLucy Neville-Rolfe, Corporate and Legal Affairs Director, Tesco, said: “One of the key attractions of our fundraising campaign is that it is geared towards helping people at a local level. Marie Curie Nurses provide a vital service for terminally ill patients and their families in local communities throughout the UK and I’m sure that our staff and customers will really get behind the campaign”.Since 1988, Tesco has chosen a different charity every year to be the focus for staff fundraising.

Miles perfect score leads Horned Frogs to victory

first_imgprintSenior Mindy Miles became the second athlete in NCAA history to fire two perfect scores in a career over the weekend, shooting her second 600 to lift TCU to victory over Memphis and Nebraska. “Mindy is a world class shooter producing world class scores,” head coach Karen Monez said. “To shoot a solid 10 on that last shot of the match when you know you are working on a perfect score demonstrates just how mentally tough Mindy is.”Miles’s 600 in Air Rifle led the team, and strong scores from the other four shooters, including a 596 from junior Rachel Garner, gave them the second highest Air Rifle mark in program history at 2,382.The Horned Frogs finished with an aggregate score of 4,711, which was their lowest of the season, but still enough to defeat the second-place Memphis Tigers by 48 points. The team recorded the top five individual aggregate scores of the match for the third time this season. Freshman Elizabeth Marsh continued her strong season, leading the field with a score of 586 in Smallbore and the second-highest aggregate score of 1,178.“The team had their ups and downs during the course of the match, but they still produced a record-setting Air Rifle team score and a solid aggregate score today,” Monez said. Next week, TCU travels to West Virginia, where they will face a Mountaineers program that has won the last five national championships. The two teams are ranked 1 and 2 in the current College Rifle Coaches Association poll. TCU has been the national runner-up to West Virginia by a combined 26 points over the last two seasons.

More than 475K sign petition to bring charges against men seen assaulting a deer

first_imgWhiteway/iStock(PHILADELPHIA) — More than 475,000 people are petitioning for criminal charges to be brought against two young men who were seen assaulting an injured deer.The online petition, which, at the time this story was published, was just a few thousand signatures short of its 500,000 goal but was growing by the second, wrote that “charges need to be filed with maximum sentencing.”A video that circulated on the internet — allegedly showing two people kicking the deer in its face, stepping on it and ripping its antlers out in Pennsylvania — prompted the petition. The video has since been removed from Facebook but images appear to show the attack.A spokesperson with the Pennsylvania Game Commission told ABC News on Wednesday authorities are expecting to announce charges soon, but no arrests have been made.He said he could not release details about the attackers or the area in which the assault took place.He also would not say exactly what was seen in the video, but the commission on Sunday called it “reprehensible and potentially a violation of the law,” according to a statement.The attack comes about a week after President Donald Trump signed a bill into law that make animal cruelty a federal felony.The bipartisan bill, Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, criminalizes certain acts of animal cruelty.Anyone with information regarding the deer incident is asked to contact the Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-888–PGC-8001 or the Game Commission’s Northwest Region Dispatch Office at 814-432-3187.

Making the most of muffins

first_imgBB’s Coffee and Muffins is a place where teenage girls congregate, sipping cappuccinos eating cookies and catching up on the latest celebrity gossip. Meanwhile the odd ’suit’ pops in for a quick fumble through the newspaper, a fresh baguette and double espresso. It also offers a safe haven for the hard-core shopper – or the more mature lady – to catch their breath and get a sugar hit before re-entering the scrums of people searching for those all-important bargains in the sales.BB’s Coffee and Muffins is the fifth-largest coffee chain in the UK and the leading shopping centre café operator in the UK and Eire. Its 155 stores provide fresh snacks and a selection of hot drinks, soft drinks, ice cream and smoothies. Muffins, the chain’s largest-selling bakery product, are mixed and baked in-store each day and the sandwiches are freshly prepared. The muffin mixes come from Dawn Foods and the added ingredients, such as fruit pieces and chocolate chips, come from wholesaler BFP.”Our main competitive advantage,” says Michele Young, general manager UK, “is that we bake muffins fresh every day. Over half of the people that come in buy muffins and 75% of these are female. People walking past the store catch the aroma, which entices them in. It’s all part of the theatre and, of course, fresh muffins taste much better.”We are trying to educate our customers, by teaching them what a freshly baked muffin should taste like, with a crispy, plump top, yet moist and soft on the inside.”Muffin flavours include banana and pecan, blackberry and apple crumble, cappuccino, cherry and coconut, country style, coffee and walnut, cranberry and apple crumble, double chocolate, jam roly poly, maple & pecan, mixed berry, orange chocolate chip, St Clements, strawberries & cream, toffee apple and more. “It’s funny,” says Young. “Different regions enjoy different flavours. In the north-east, consumers like coconut and cherry, while in the south they go for the low-fat muffin. In the Midlands they prefer the sticky toffee pudding and in Scotland they like the sultana and raisin.”BB’s believe that the way people tuck into a muffin says a lot about their personality. “We conducted an on-line survey and the most popular method is to ’start at the top’,” says Young. “A third eat their muffin this way. We call these ’Muffin Magnets’. One out of five are ’Muffin Logicians’, they pull the top and bottom of the muffin apart and then take bites from both. Next are the ’Muffin Maniacs’ – 18% of our respondents simply dive in and pull the muffins to pieces, while others take theirs home and eat it warm or with custard. Fourteen per cent are ’Nibblers’ and the remainder eat from the bottom up – ’The Bottoms Up Brigade’.”The survey taught us a lot about how to serve muffins. For example, in some stores, we can give people the choice whether to have their muffin heated up or with custard. We also give people the chance to take away a box of muffins – these account for 20% of sales – which are perfect for Friday afternoon in the office.”—-=== Did you know? ===? Muffins sales were up by 5% last year in retail and 19% in foodservice? BB’s Coffee & Muffins serves approximately 30,000 customers each day in 155 stores, selling 28 different flavours of muffin, with an additional ’muffin of the month’? January’s ’muffin of the month’ was the low-fat muffin, less than 3% fat and 300mg per 100g of sodium? BB’s has 155 stores and plans to open another 20 before the end of 2007? BB’s puts over 24,000kg of chocolate chips and 24,000 apple pieces into its muffins each year, which is the equivalent to the weight of eight African elephants? The biggest BB’s muffin eaters are the customers of cafés in Bluewater, Cheshire Oaks and Uxbridge? Chocolate chip is the best-selling BB’smuffin, closely followed by Raspberry and Apple andSticky Toffee? If BB’s stretched out all the 1.5 million baguettes it sells each year, it would reach from London to Liverpool? Each year, customers drink the equivalent of one-and-a-half Olympic-sized swimming pools full of coffee and buy 187,000 litres of ice cream a year? The first BB’s café was opened in Maidenhead in 1997, so this year BB’s will celebrate its 10th anniversary in the summer? BB’s brought out a rich strawberry-flavoured pink muffin for a breast cancer charity and, so far, has managed to raise £15,000? BB’s recently held a BBC radio competition.
