City promote homeless services alongside council

first_imgThe campaign aims to encourage people to take the first step of accepting support, as letters from people who have been homeless are being placed around the city, including Ashton Gate Stadium, in a bid to reach out to people in similar situations.The letters aimed not only at rough sleepers, but those at risk of becoming homeless, include pleas from the authors to access help available from the council and other support services.John said: “At 17 I started sleeping rough and was addicted to drugs. At that time all I had was my bedding, nothing else.“There were a lot of services trying to help me, but at that point, I wasn’t ready. Thankfully people didn’t give up on me.“After 13 years on the streets I tackled my addiction and got into supported housing. I am living proof that there is a different life for you. You just need to be ready to reach out and take it.”In another letter Danni, aged 24, shares how an abusive childhood found her living in hostels and vulnerable. She says: “I eventually reached out for help. I’m in a much better place now and even have hopes and dreams for the future. I could have given up a number of times, but I’m still here, and I am still fighting.”last_img read more

Player’s transfer pushed as ‘likely’ this summer – Chelsea and Man…

first_imgThe German magazine believes a summer transfer is ‘likely’ for the RB Leipzig player, and speculation continues over where he’ll go. It’s claimed he’d prefer a move to Liverpool, yet despite the German media flirting with the Reds on his behalf for a year, there doesn’t seem to be a lot happening right now in that regard.Manchester United and Chelsea have also been repeatedly linked, and the same happens today. The clubs managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard are said to be interested, but again there isn’t any suggestion that either of them have made moves on the transfer.Werner will be available for €55-60m in the summer, thanks to a clause his agents negotiated in the RB Leipzig contract. Therefore, it would be a case of negotiating with those representatives.This week’s edition of SportBild doesn’t say that either Manchester United or Chelsea have taken steps to do that.Solskjaer doesn’t desperately need to spend such an amount on a striker now. Odion Ighalo has impressed since his arrival, and Marcus Rashford will return from injury in the coming months.Chelsea will likely have more room, especially given Olivier Giroud’s contract expires in the summer.Timo Werner won’t have the possibility of impressing at Euro 2021 and attracting further interest, given the tournament has been suspended for a year.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is AddictiveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Spinners batter Windies after Mahmudullah hundred

first_imgDHAKA, Bangladesh, CMC – Beleaguered West Indies were left needing a miracle to avoid a historic series defeat after yet again failing to survive a trial by spin, as Bangladesh took a stranglehold on the second and final Test after completely dominating the second day here yesterday. Behind Mahmudullah’s career-best 136, captain Shakib-al-Hasan’s 80 and an attacking 54 from Liton Das, Bangladesh piled up a mammoth 508 – their second highest-ever total against West Indies – before the innings folded half-hour after tea at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.Off-spinner Mehidy Hasan then snatched three for 36 while Shakib supported with two for 15 with his left-arm spin, to leave the West Indies innings in strife at 29 for five.Left-hander Shimron Hetmyer leading the Windies fightbackIt was left to rookie left-hander Shimron Hetmyer with an unbeaten 32 and wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich, on 17 not out, to save West Indies from total embarrassment and guide the innings to the close on 75 for five. The pair have so far added a gutsy 46 in an unbroken sixth wicket stand and with the Windies still trailing by 433 runs, much will lie on their shoulders on today’s day three as the last recognised batsmen.Having suffered at the hands of the Bangladeshi spinners during their first Test defeat in Chittagong last weekend, West Indies fared little better in their attempt at redemption, as they were once again mesmerised by the slower bowlers.All five dismissals were bowled, marking the first time in 128 years bowlers had achieved the feat. Stand-in captain Kraigg Brathwaite’s wretched run continued when he fell to the sixth ball of the innings, bowled through the gate by Shakib without a run on the board.His left-handed opening partner Kieran Powell survived 15 deliveries before he too followed in similar fashion, bowled between bat and pad by Mehidy for four and Sunil Ambris’s charge at Shakib was as desperate as it was ambitious, and he missed the drive and was also bowled for seven.Three balls later in the next over, Shai Hope’s 30-ball grind over 10 came to an end when he became the fourth bowled victim of the innings by one from Mehidy which crept from back of a length and hit the base of off-stump. When Roston Chase played down the wrong line first ball and lost his off-stump to Mehidy, West Indies were falling apart spectacularly.But as they did in the first Test, Hetmyer and Dowrich once again came to the Caribbean side’s rescue, resisting the Bangladeshi spin assault for the remainder of the session.The 21-year-old Hetmyer has so far struck three fours in a typically breezy 43-ball innings while Dowrich has opted for the sheet anchor role in a knock that has lasted 37 balls and included a single boundary. Hetmyer suffered a scare on 10 when he was adjudged lbw to 17-year-old off-spinner Nayeem Hasan before finding a reprieve courtesy DRS. He carried on seemingly unfazed, however, using his feet to the spinners and finding boundaries down the ground.Earlier, West Indies bowlers toiled in frustration as Bangladesh, starting the day on 259 for five, batted themselves into a near impregnable position.Mahmudullah, unbeaten on 31 at the start, produced a magnificent innings which spanned 6-¼ hours, 242 deliveries and included 10 fours.Pivotally, he stretched his overnight sixth wicket stand with Shakib to 111, keeping West Indies without any early success and seeing Bangladesh past the 300-run mark. The left-handed Shakib played freely after resuming on 55, taking three consecutive boundaries off off-spinner Chase in the morning’s fourth over, before falling three overs later when he edged a loose drive at seamer Kemar Roach (2-61) and was caught at gully.That breakthrough failed to improve the Windies fortunes as Mahmudullah and Das combined in a 92-run, seventh wicket partnership, which propelled Bangladesh to lunch on 387 for six.Das played with abandon, striking eight fours and a six in a 62-ball cameo, reaching lunch on 53 before finally perishing in the fourth over afterwards, bowled by off-spinner Brathwaite (2-57) missing a sweep. While Mehidy followed soon afterwards for 11, caught at the wicket off left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican (2-91), Mahmudullah provided even more pain for the Windies by anchoring a ninth-wicket 56-run with Taijul Islam (26) which pushed Bangladesh up to 471 for eight at tea.Mahmudullah, unbeaten on 75 at lunch, reached his third Test hundred 20 minutes before tea when he cut Chase to the point boundary.He was the last to fall, bowled by a full length delivery from Warrican after being dropped by Hope at slip three balls earlier in the same over.last_img read more

Essien issues title rallying cry

first_imgMichael Essien claims the best part of Chelsea’s season is yet to come as the Blues prepare for their crunch game against Manchester United on Sunday.Chelsea can go top of the standings at Old Trafford and give Essien the chance to end the season with a winner’s medal as he did last season.If that happens it will represent a great comeback from the side who endured their worst run for 15 years in November last year but have now taken 25 points from a possible 27 recently.Essien wrote in his blog on Chelsea’s official website: “It has been a sweet and sour season. To use a sandwich analogy: sweet bread at the top, sour filling and more sweet bread at the bottom.”He added: “We started the season extremely well, had a sour middle part and are now ending strongly.“We have hit a good run of form lately and have managed to haul ourselves back into the title race. “We have to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford this weekend to ensure we are in the driving seat and I can assure you we are up for it.“The team is playing well and I have no doubt we will give it everything we have to beat Man United.”Source: Kickoff.comlast_img read more
