Sponsor of National Doughnut Week, BakeMark, is encouraging all bakers to get involved and help raise money for The Children’s Trust. The next fundraising week will take place from 9-16 May, 2009 and will be the 25th anniversary for the charity, which raises money for specific care, education and therapy for children with multiple disabilities. National Doughnut Week has raised £630,000 in its history and the aim this year is to raise over £50,000. Each participating baker will have the opportunity to boost profits, involve the local community and media, and raise money for the charity with every doughnut sold. Anyone who registers will receive posters, balloons, collection boxes and PR support, as well as the chance to be promoted on the National Doughnut Week website. BakeMark is offering a complimentary bag of Craigmillar Doughnut Concentrate or a box of Readi-Bake Topped Ring Doughnuts, to businesses that register by 3 April, 2009. Bakers can also receive £2 off Craigmillar Doughnut Concentrate and £1 off Readi-Bake Topped Ring Doughnuts at participating wholesalers throughout May. “The monies raised help a really worthwhile cause – and with The Children’s Trust celebrating its silver anniversary this year, there will be quite a bit of media interest in the event, all of which should help drive sales for bakers throughout the UK,” said Lisa Boswell, marketing manager at BakeMark. Liz Haigh-Reeve, director of fundraising at The Children’s Trust, added: “Whatever size your bakery is, however much or little you raise is invaluable, as all registered bakeries help to fund specialist services, equipment and staff – which in turn helps these children enjoy a better quality of life. We are very grateful to everyone who takes part.” Christopher Freeman of Dunn’s Bakery in North London launched the first National Doughnut Week.To register, email [email protected] or check out the National Doughnut Week website – www.nationaldoughnutweek.org.

After around two months of coronavirus restrictions in four provinces and 26 cities, the government is planning to ease the restrictions, but has yet to come up with a specific date, according to Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Pandjaitan.Luhut, a Golkar Party politician, said Tuesday that the decision would depend on several indicators, including a decline in the number of confirmed cases and the test positivity rate. In line with the World Health Organization’s instruction, massive testing and tracing are the necessary preconditions the government aims to meet.Read also: Jakarta enters transition phase to ease restrictions, extends PSBB to end of June “That is the reason we have not yet announced it,” Luhut said in an online talk on Tuesday. “But we are obviously making preparations, so when we see a downward trend for two weeks, I think it will be about time to reopen.”Jakarta, the national epicenter of the pandemic with 7,485 confirmed COVID-19 cases, has decided to extend the period of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) to the end of June as Indonesia’s capital city enters the transition phase with gradual easing plans in place for several sectors .But Indonesia’s total tests relative to the size of population only stood at 0.85 tests per 1,000 people as of Monday, far lower than neighboring Malaysia with 17.32 tests, according to Our World in Data, an open access publication of global socioeconomic data.The government did not rule out the likelihood of imposing further coronavirus restrictions if people did not comply with health protocols such as wearing a face mask and practicing physical distancing after the current restrictions were lifted for fear of a second wave of coronavirus cases, said Luhut. Read also: Government expects House to vote on omnibus bill next month: Luhut“We will implement the exit strategy gradually in three phases, which will be reviewed every month,” said Luhut. “The treatment varies from one region to another depending on its pandemic curve.”The World Bank projected that if the coronavirus restrictions lasted for four months, Indonesia’s economy might contract 3.5 percent this year. Signs of a coronavirus-induced downturn appeared in the first quarter growth, which slowed to 2.97 percent year-on-year.As part of its plan to speed up the economic recovery, the government seeks to increase the share of revenue from domestic tourists from 55 percent to 70 percent as the temporary halt in global travel hinders foreign tourist arrivals. The number of foreign arrivals fell 87.44 percent to just 160,000 in April from a year earlier.Topics :

Tags: Coaching Conference, Volunteer Manager of the Year, Wendy Lodder Volunteer squad manager Wendy Lodder has been honoured with an award at the England Golf coaching conference.Wendy, who suffers from a rare cancer, was hailed as the 2017 Volunteer Manager of the Year, in tribute to her inspirational dedication to her players in the England U18 East region squad.Guests at the awards dinner watched a video of player after player speaking about Wendy’s contribution to their progress. They told of her positive attitude, her encouragement, her welcome, her big smile, her friendship and her belief in them.Squad coach Sarah Bennett said: “Wendy is just incredible. The connection she has with everyone and the respect she has from the players is amazing. She makes everything run so smoothly and has so much desire and commitment for the people who matter, the players.”Wendy, a member at Colchester Golf Club in Essex, was a late starter to golf, achieving a single figure handicap and becoming a Level 1 volunteer coach 10 years ago.She’s been the East Region U18 squad manager for the past two seasons and said of her award: “It’s a great honour to be recognised by England Golf, the East Regional coach Sarah Bennett and my Team East squad.“I love working with the coach and the squad and get a great deal of enjoyment from seeing them grow as players and people. I’m thrilled to use my life skills to help other players strive for their dreams.“I have had great support from England Golf, Sarah and the squad in recent months after I was diagnosed with cancer. This has inspired my fight against the disease and made me even more determined to beat it.”Wendy was recognised alongside two top coaches. Yorkshire’s Steve Robinson, who led the England women’s team to back-to-back European championship wins, was named Coach of the Year 2017 for the second time in succession. It’s the second year in a row he has received this award.Top putting coach Phil Kenyon received the Award for Excellence in Coaching, in recognition for years of service to the England men and boys’ squads.

As the Netherlands gear up for their World Cup opener against England, the mostly amateur team is drawing inspiration from the day it played “total cricket” at the tradition-steeped headquarters of the sport.The February 22 match in Nagpur gives the Dutch a chance to repeat one of the most celebrated moments in the country’s relatively short cricket history – beating England by four wickets at Lord’s in a thrilling start to the 2009 Twenty20 World Cup.”We know what the feeling is like winning a massive game,” said left arm spinner Pieter Seelaar, who took the crucial wicket of England captain Paul Collingwood in the Twenty20 World Cup opener. “No one will underestimate us this time around … hopefully we can do something to make the world go crazy.”Writing in London’s Daily Telegraph newspaper, former England allrounder Derek Pringle described the Dutch performance as “total cricket,” a flattering reference to the dominating “total football” played by the Netherlands’ football teams of the 1970s.The match was a rare highlight for the Netherlands, which has managed just two wins – against Namibia and Scotland – in three ODI World Cups but wants to improve its record this time around by pulling off a shock win against one of cricket’s established powers.The likes of Seelaar know that a repeat of the stunning Twenty20 victory over England is unlikely in the longer form of the game – especially as a few England players will likely be out for revenge.”I think there are still some guys who’ve got some feelings there,” Seelaar said. “Stuart Broad obviously.”advertisementIt was Broad who bowled the last over and missed a run out on the final ball of the match, allowing Ryan Ten Doeschate and Edgar Schiferli to scamper through for an overthrow to seal the unlikely Dutch victory.”They’ll be fired up to show how good they really are,” said Seelaar, whose spin helped restrict England to 162-5 after a century opening stand by Ravi Bopara and Luke Wright appeared to have put the hosts on track for a huge total.The Netherlands captain Peter BorrenThe Netherlands’ New Zealand-born captain, Peter Borren, acknowledged that beating England again would be a very tall order for a team with only a handful of full-time professional players.”I guess it’s a completely different ball game, being 50-over cricket, but it gives you confidence,” he said. “We’ve competed with them before, albeit at a different format. Each ball’s a new event and we can compete with them again.”Ten Doeschate, the Essex all-rounder who played for Tasmania in Australia’s Twenty20 competition this season, is likely to again be the Netherlands’ biggest star at the World Cup.The 30-year-old from Port Elizabeth, South Africa, played a pivotal role with bat and ball in the victory over England.Bowling his right arm medium pace, he snared the wickets of both England openers and then smashed an unbeaten 22 off 17 balls to secure victory.While Ten Doeschate makes a living playing cricket, the Netherlands has not been able to cash in on the brief global exposure generated by the England win.The team has struggled to find sponsors even for the World Cup in cricket-crazy Indian, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and most of the players still have to combine training with work or study.”There are not enough sponsors here,” Seelaar said. “I would like to play as a professional, but unfortunately it’s not there.”Seelaar, who is studying sports marketing, said some English county sides “showed an interest” in him after the 2009 Twenty20 World Cup, but not enough to sign him.Now he’s hoping he can make his mark at the 50-over World Cup.”Hopefully I can show what I can do and there’ll be someone who believes in me and says ‘yes we’ll give him a shot,'” he said.
