A day in the cells for charity

12
Aug

A Birkenhead resident will spend a day in the cells on Saturday, August 22, all in the name of charity.

James Morgan’s mother passed away in September 2011 following a long struggle against Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. It is a debilitating lung disease with no preventive medication.

Her last year of life, James tells me, was one of immense struggle. Her final three months of life were spent in Arrowe Park.

Since then James has embarked on a series of charity challenges in memory of his mother. He has abseiled down Leasowe Lighthouse, swum with sharks, and zip wired above the streets of Liverpool.

The money raised from each challenge has gone to local charities helping people who suffer with severe ill health.

His latest challenge is to incarcerate himself in a police holding cell underneath the old Assizes Court Chamber in St George’s Hall, Liverpool.

He will be there between 10am and 5pm on August 22 and has asked whether residents might be in a position to sponsor his efforts.

All donations will go straight to Wirral Hospice St John’s. The hospice looks after people who are terminally ill while also caring for their families.

Should you wish to donate to the cause, might you visit James’s fundraising page at: www.sponsorme.co.uk/jamesmorgan/locked-up-in-memory-of-mum.aspx

I will be updating Wirral News readers each week on the results my office has achieved for local residents writing to ask for help.

A lady this week wrote in to say she had been fined £440 by HMRC for handing in her tax return late.

She informed me that it had been submitted on time and asked whether I could take up her case with HMRC.

I am pleased to report that following my enquiry she has since received a full refund, and HMRC have apologised for the error which had caused such distress.
