LANDMARK BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
First this week to BBC News and to a beautiful part of the UK – Cornwall. Resident Ti Østmo has just this week celebrated her 100th birthday with family and friends on a Falmouth beach, and the keen environmentalist has selflessly asked for people to plant trees to help take action on climate change. More on this remarkable story here.
NEW WHEELS FROM THE POLICE
A truly heartwarming piece here now from Herald Sun, as Chad Wiliford, a member of the North Carolina Police Force, and his act of kindness for a local teen who had their bike stolen and has now been recognised with an honour by his force. Read more about his life changing act of generosity here.
TOP OF THE TWEET POPS
Lastly this week, we head to Pitchfork Media, and to a story about the bird conservation charity the RSPB, who this week have entered the top 20 of the UK singles chart with a track which – is quite aptly – bird song to raise awareness of their work to help our endangered feathered friends. Find out more about this most unique of chart hits here.
