Big Yellow Self Storage backs Cambridge University RUFC

for third successive season

Support from the UK’s favourite self-storage provider will go towards helping The Blues achieve their season aim of beating old rivals Oxford

Big Yellow Self Storage is proud to announce it has extended its sponsorship of Cambridge University Rugby Union Football Club (CURUFC) for a third consecutive season. As the main title sponsor of CURUFC, Big Yellow will provide support and financial backing for the 2018/2019 season, which kicked off last month with notable wins against Loughborough and Welsh Academicals.

Donations from Big Yellow, who operate a network of 96 storage facilities across the UK including a site in Cambridge behind Homebase off Newmarket Road, will help towards the further development and running of CURUFC’s coaching programmes – in particular the employment of dedicated strength and conditioning coaches.

Commenting on the announcement, Big Yellow CEO and Co-Founder James Gibson says: “As a company Big Yellow prides itself on providing help and support to the many customers we cater for each day. This ethos extends out to the wider community around us and we’re pleased to offer backing to a wide range of charities and local initiatives, including sporting

programmes such as Cambridge University RUFC. It goes without saying we’re all huge rugby fans at Big Yellow and we’re looking forward to cheering on CURUFC for the forthcoming season and sharing in their continued success.”

As one of the founding members of the Rugby Football Union in 1871/72, CURUFC has seen significant success over the years, and boasts the accolade of having more internationally capped players wear its famous light blue jersey than for any other club.

The development of specialist strength and conditioning coaches, which wouldn’t have been possible without Big Yellow’s sponsorship, has already born fruit for CURUFC in the form of a double victory at Twickenham over arch rivals Oxford in the Varsity match last year.

With Big Yellow’s continued support, CURUFC hopes to repeat the success of last year by beating Oxford at the annual meeting on 6th December this year, especially in the Women’s fixture as they celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Women’s first Varsity Match in 1988.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Jeremy Macklin, in charge of fundraising at Cambridge University RUFC, says: “We are absolutely delighted to be supported once again by Big Yellow Self Storage. They have been our partners for three consecutive years, and thanks to their help we have been able to improve radically the strength and conditioning programmes across both the Women’s and the Men’s sections of the club.

“The support Big Yellow provide has been unwavering over the past two seasons and we’ve seen dramatic improvements year on year, in terms of players’ acceleration, endurance and brute strength. The intensity of the Varsity match surprises even hardened professional rugby players, but with Big Yellow’s support we know we already have an advantage over the old enemy.”

DODDIE WEIR MY NAME’5 DODDIE

The Autobiography

The extraordinary, life-affirming autobiography of rugby legend Doddie Weir.

Packed with anecdotes and from his playing career and a life well lived, it’s also the poignant story of the challenges he now faces following his MND diagnosis.

Publication date: 25/10/2018 | Format: Hardback | ISBN: 978 1 78530 224 4 | Price: £20

There has never been anyone quite like Doddie Weir. As truthful and immensely entertaining as the man himself, My Name’5 Doddie is a humbling, courageous and very funny celebration of a remarkable life being lived to the max. Known for his sportsmanship, infectious sense of humour and boundless energy, Bill McLaren’s famous description that Doddie was “on the charge like a mad giraffe” sums up the charisma and prowess of a player who was irresistible to watch. In his rugby career, this giant of Scottish rugby made the Scotland number 5 jersey absolutely his own. Following his debut against Argentina in 1990, Doddie won 61 caps for his country, toured South Africa with the British & Irish Lions and was the first recipient of the Famous Grouse Scotland Player of the Five Nations award in 1997. At club level, he played with distinction for Stewart’s Melville, Melrose, Newcastle Falcons and Borders until he retired in 2005. Now, at the age of 48, Doddie is facing an entirely different challenge: Motor Neuron Disease. In November 2017, 67,000 fans at Murrayfield stood in unison to support Doddie as he brought out the match ball for Scotland’s autumn international fixture with the All Blacks, with his three teenage sons at his side. Since then Doddie has worked tirelessly – often in his signature “explosion in a paint factory” tartan suits – to raise funds and awareness for his charitable My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, which provides money for MND research and makes grants available to MND sufferers to help them live as full a life as possible.

Co-author Stewart Weir is a former sports reporter at the Evening Times, chief sportswriter at the Scottish Mirror, and Head of Sport at the Herald & Times Group. He was also deputy editor for official publications at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Stewart has also worked extensively in PR, for governing bodies, and, individual clients such as Sir Chris Hoy, Stephen Hendry and Ronnie O’Sullivan. He is also a regular on talkSPORT

Dollars and Sense: How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter

We think of money as numbers, values, and amounts, but when it comes down to it, when we actually use our money, we engage our hearts more than Cover artour heads. Emotions play a powerful role in shaping our financial behavior, often making us our own worst enemies as we try to save, access value, and spend responsibly. In Dollars and Sense (HarperCollins), bestselling author and behavioral economist Dan Ariely teams up with financial comedian and writer Jeff Kreisler to challenge many of our most basic assumptions about the precarious relationship between our brains and our money. In doing so, they undermine many of personal finance’s most sacred beliefs and explain how we can override some of our own instincts to make better financial choices. Paperback will be available for the holidays.

“No Slade = no Oasis. It’s as simple as that.”
Noel Gallagher

SO HERE IT IS
How the boy from Wolverhampton rocked the world with Slade

The Autobiography by Dave Hill

18th October 2018 | PB £8.99

• Featuring a foreword from Noddy Holder and an afterword by Noel Gallagher
• Slade own Christmas with their classic anthem, ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’, which has sold over a million copies and charted every year since 1973
• Packed with never-before-seen photos from Dave’s personal collection, plus a brand new chapter

With six consecutive number one singles and the smash hit ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’, Slade were unstoppable. Now, the man whose outlandish costumes and unmistakable hairstyle made Slade one of the definitive acts of the Glam Rock era tells his story.

But there’s more to Dave’s life than rock ‘n’ roll and good times. So Here It Is also covers the band’s painful break-up, Dave’s subsequent battle with depression, and his recovery from the stroke that threatened to cut short his performing career.

If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to be a working-class lad from the Midlands suddenly confronted by unimaginable fame, So Here It Is is the definitive account, told with heart and humour and filled with never-before-seen photos.

About Dave Hill
Dave Hill was born in a castle in Devon and moved with his parents to Wolverhampton when he was a year old. As a teenager he taught himself to play guitar and in 1966 formed the band Slade.

After the break-up of the original band, Dave eventually reformed Slade, and twenty-five years later they are still regularly touring the world, playing to hundreds of thousands of fans. Dave married his wife Jan in 1973, and they have three children and six grandchildren. They still live in Wolverhampton.

Dave tours extensively with Slade but will be available for interviews and events around publication.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

The range includes beautiful Greetings Cards, ideas for Stocking Fillers and Children’s Toys, and we also have a brand new, special range to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the much-loved Christmas classic story, ‘The Snowman’.

The full range of gifts are available from gosh.org/shop and 100% of the profits from sales will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity to help support families this Christmas.

For families at Great Ormond Street Hospital, time together is very precious.

Sky Sports announce Betfred Super League fixtures for 2019

Forget the fireworks, rugby league is back with a bang on Sky Sports.

2019 is packed with nearly 200 live games from all areas of the sport including the Betfred Super League, Championship, Challenge Cup and NRL.

The Betfred Super League season kicks off on Thursday 31 January, with reigning champions Wigan playing early season favourites St. Helens in the first ever traditional opening night derby.

Then on Friday night, it’s the Hull derby, before we head over to Warrington to see the 2018 Grand Finalists take on the most successful club of the Super League era, Leeds Rhinos, at home on 2 February.

Sky Sports will show three Betfred Super League matches per week for the first five rounds, with newly promoted London Broncos at home to Castleford in round three.

By round four, every club will have featured on Sky Sports, and by round seven each will have been visited at home by our cameras.

The season will no doubt throw up some big sporting moments in the Dacia Magic Weekend, State of Origin and the World Club Challenge. And it all culminates in the Grand Finals from both the Betfred Super League and NRL in October.

The Betfred Super League is on Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Arena. You can also see every try with Day, Week, Mobile and Month Passes on streaming service NOW TV.

Top designers make limited edition feminist T-shirts for Amnesty and Everpress collaboration on women’s rights

Amnesty International and Everpress have teamed up to launch ‘Rebellion’, a new range of limited-edition T-shirts to celebrate the powerful movements for women’s rights and to raise awareness of the everyday struggles of gender inequality.

Nine T-shirts have been produced and designed by leading and emerging women and non-binary artists, including street artist Bambi, street mural duo Nomad Clan, Alice Skinner, Leyla Reynolds and Age of Reason. They have all used their unique perspectives and interpretations of the theme to create nine feminist T-shirt designs.

The T-shirts are available to purchase online from tomorrow (7 November) for three weeks only – until Monday 26 November – with 50% of the profits going to Amnesty. Each T-shirt will retail at £25.

The ‘Rebellion’ T-shirt project is part of Amnesty’s Write for Rights campaign, which is supporting women human rights defenders who are currently in jail, or suffering harassment or persecution, including women affected by Northern Ireland’s restrictive abortion law and those who have been victims of online abuse. The nine artists – who all use art as a form of activism and protest – took inspiration for their designs from these women or from their own experiences and passions.

Kate Allen, Director of Amnesty UK, said: “Sexual harassment, the denial of reproductive freedoms and gender-based online violence are just a few of the abuses women, trans and non-binary people face every single day. But around the world people are rising for their rights.

“The movement for gender justice and equality is strong, powerful, brave, courageous and determined. We’re delighted to be collaborating with Everpress and this exciting group of artists to create a range of T-shirts so that people can wear their rebellion, protest or statement with pride.”

The nine designers are Ali Mapletoft (Age of Reason), Alice Skinner, Bambi, Camilla Perkins, Hazel Mead, Jacob V Joyce, Leyla Reynolds, Margarita Rebolledo Hernández and Nomad Clan.

Bambi, who based her design on suffragette Emily Davison, said: ‘’The suffragette Emily Davison is my hero. Davison was a woman of almost unimaginable courage who repeatedly ran the gravest personal risks in pursuit of the campaign for women’s votes.’’

Hazel Mead, who based her design of the work of online violence campaigner Seyi Akiwowo, said: “The issue of online violence was something that I hadn’t seen tackled much before so this subject matter intrigued me. …I wanted it to be a message about holding social media companies to account.”

Ali Mapletoft, the designer behind Age of Reason, said: “I’m inspired by memories of the women from my childhood. Every woman has a voice, and it’s though using our voices that we rise.”

Jacob V Joyce, said of their ‘The Future is Queer’ design: “I hope it will resonate with the same urgency as Angela Davis’ quote ‘you have to act as if it were possible to radically transform the world, and you have to do it all the time’.”

Camilla Perkins, whose ‘My Choice’ design was inspired by Amnesty’s campaign for abortion rights in Northern Ireland, said: “It shocks me that even in 2018 in Northern Ireland the human rights of women are being breached by not allowing them safe and free access to abortion services.”

Upper Bounce is one of the leading trampoline manufacturers. They strive to deliver a quality product that everyone in the family can enjoy.

Study after study has shown that adults and children are experiencing epidemic proportions of obesity. There are many new and ongoing programs in schools advocating the reduction of sugar and sugared drinks, as well as fatty foods. Furthermore, baby boomers who are approaching retirement age are being told by the medical establishment, and constantly made aware, that being sedentary is very detrimental to health. They are being encouraged to exercise even a few hours a week, as it will have a very positive effect on both their physical and mental wellbeing.

A trampoline is one of the most effective ways of enjoying healthy body movement and low impact exercise. Bouncing on a trampoline engages all your body muscles, without placing stress on any specific part of your body. Additionally, the entire family – from your small kids all the way to grandpa — can enjoy a trampoline. One key concern in the use of a trampoline is safety consideration: The way the trampoline is built makes a big difference in the safety and enjoyment of your trampoline.

Upper Bounce doesn’t skimp on the quality of raw materials during the manufacture of their trampolines. Their trampoline mats and safety enclosures are strong and durable, and the frame’s components are constructed with safety of the consumer in mind, and built to last for years to come. So put away your smartphone and go bounce!
