“After Dr Shara Cohen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 she found there was very little time for her, or her family, to just relax, take it all in and to give herself ‘me’ time.

“With all the appointments, liaising with work, telling the people who needed to be told…… there was little time to digest what was happening, research the practicalities or to just relax”

So she set up Cancer Care Parcel to take some of the worry way from those affected by cancer.

“I received my box and was simply blown away and for anyone to receive this gift who is suffering from Cancer would feel truly appreciated and will have received a range of genuinely useful and relaxing item… thank you so much to the brand for the opportunity to try this” the InTouch Rugby Gifts Editor On Assignment!

Limited Edition Obsidian Black bottle to raise funds

We are thrilled to announce that we are working with Ocean Bottle who have launched a limited Edition Obsidian Black Bottle to raise funds for the Plastic Bank Community Relief Fund to help hundreds of thousands of waste workers across the world.

emsliecreative.com

The reusable bottle that stops 1000 plastic bottles from entering our oceans.
Ocean Bottle makes reusable bottles that save our oceans. With the sale of every bottle, 1000 ocean-bound plastic bottles are collected in impoverished coastal communities in Indonesia, Philippines, Brazil and, Haiti and Indonesia where plastic pollution is worst.
Ocean Bottle’s Mission;

By 2050 there will be more plastic by weight than fish in our oceans and the rate of plastic going into our oceans is only increasing. Yet up to 80% of the world’s ocean plastic comes from a lack of waste management infrastructure in coastal communities around the world.

We need to create a long-term people- powered network of recycling infrastructure to ensure plastic is collected before it enters our oceans in the first place.

The impact caused by Covid- 19 and the reason for launching the Limited Edition Obsidian Black Bottles.

Millions of plastic collectors and waste workers risk losing their livelihoods due to Covid-19. They do the critical work to collect, sort & recycle much of the world’s waste but don’t have the protection from governments or municipal authorities that many of us do.

Ocean Bottle is delighted to have launched the limited Edition Obsidian Black Bottle to raise funds. Each one costs £40 and 25% of proceeds from each bottle will go to the Relief Fund for plastic collectors, plus the usual guaranteed impact of 1000 plastic bottles collected!

The Obsidian Black Bottle is made from stainless steel, has insulation for hot and cold drinks, partly made from up-cycled ocean-bound plastic, is anti-leak, has an easy carry loop and is dishwasher safe. The brand has since won a Red Dot and Green Product Award.

For the Londoners- Ocean Bottle also recently won the Lord Mayor’s London Business Awards for Impact. Celebrity fans include Adwoa Aboah and Natalie Imbruglia.

BIRDIE GOLF (Hog Wild) For the dad that’s dreaming of the green. This portable packable set lets you create a golf course indoors or out! Weighted ‘holes’ are accompanied by cleverly designed golf balls that features a badminton-like birdie tail that keeps it flying!

POP and PASS (Hog Wild) Reimagining a good ol’ game of catch with two launchers with functional basket design “popping” the ball back and forth between players.

MARSHMALLOW CLASSIC DOUBLE BLASTER (Zing) These actually use soft mini marshmallows so they’re perfect for a face-off with dad indoors too! Delivers a soft, hearty laugh on impact. Available on Amazon

PLAYMOBIL Back to the Future DeLorean – If dad’s a fan, or wants his kids to be, the time is right since the iconic film franchise is celebrating it’s 35th anniversary this year. This incredible recreation of the time machine is PLAYMOBIL design at it’s best. Available on Amazon

Turn Dad into a BBQ Master

With a Gift Pack of Old Arthur’s Sauces and Rubs

www.OldArthurs.com

Spice up barbecuing with a gift pack filled with Old Arthur’s award-winning sauces and rubs. Crafted by one of America’s earliest Pitmasters, these recipes have been passed down through his family for five generations, the Pit Master’s Gift Pack is the perfect gift for the grilling enthusiast in your family.

The gift pack contains one of each product in the Old Arthur’s line of BBQ sauces and dry rubs.You will receive one botle of Old Arthur’s Original Barbeque Sauce and one bottle of Hot & Spicy Sauce, plus six signature dry rubs: Smokestack, Righteous Poultry, Stockyard Steak, Gold Dust, Bootleg and Crossroads. It’s a flavorful gift that’s perfect for that hard-to-buy-for cook on your list. And it makes a great hostess gift when you’re searching for something out of the ordinary.

The Old Arthur name comes from the man who developed these unique blends of flavors, Arthur Watts, who lived to be 108. Born into slavery on a Missouri production farm in 1837, Arthur crafted his seasonings while preparing the owner’s family meals over an open pit. Following the Emancipation in 1863, Watts put his cooking skills to work earning a living catering social functions for churches and cities. His reputation as a highly-skilled pit master quickly grew, earning him work throughout central Illinois.

Although Arthur never learned to read or write, his eldest son, Eudell, wrote his recipes down so family members could pass them on to future generations. It was only recently that the family began sharing the flavors commercially—and quickly made a name for themselves. On their debut, Old Arthur’s took top honors among 400 new products in Peapod’s “Next Best” Gourmet Food Product Contest. Most recently, Old Arthur’s was named among the “Top 10 “ barbecue sauces of 2020 by Barbecue News Magazine, the industry’s leading dedicated publication.

The Pit Master’s Gift Pack features a complete sampling of Old Arthur’s flavorful blends. It’s a perfect starter kit for a beginning cook, but even an accomplished BBQ chef will appreciate its smartly crafted blends.

The Pit Master’s Gift Pack, $45, is available through Old Arthur’s website at www.OldArthurs.com

What is CBD oil?

CBD oil is a fabulous food supplement rich in cannabinoids and terpenes, which help to bring balance to our bodies and minds by interacting with the endocannabinoid system in our bodies. The benefits of CBD oil are wide and varied and it is sold legally in the UK as a food supplement. The World Health Organisation stipulates that CBD oil is non-toxic, non-addictive and non-psychoactive.

What does CBD stand for?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of over a hundred different compounds known as cannabinoids. CBD is known as a non-psychoactive cannabinoid meaning when you take it, you won’t feel high. This unique feature of CBD is what makes it so great and appealing for taking care of ourselves.

Where does CBD Oil come from?

CBD oil is derived from a strain of cannabis plant called hemp sativa. Hemp sativa naturally grows with very low levels of THC, so it is legal in the UK. It contains high levels of CBD (cannabidiol) and over 100 different healthy cannabinoids. CBD and other cannabinoids are not psychoactive or physically addictive.

What is the Endocannabinoid System?

In 1992, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, an Israeli scientist, discovered that every human and many animals have a system present in their bodies known as The Endogenous Cannabinoid System or Endocannabinoid System. This system is activated by cannabinoids.
Our bodies create cannabinoids, which are used by the endocannabinoid system to maintain balance (homeostasis) in the body. However, unfortunately most of us are unable to create enough of our own cannabinoids and therefore our endocannabinoid system may be out of balance, resulting in poor health.
The endocannabinoid system has been described as being the most important system in the body for maintaining long-term.
Research suggests that taking CBD oil helps your body to create more of the cannabinoids needed by this system, in turn helping to maintain balance and wellbeing in the body.

What are the benefits of taking CBD?

CBD had been used for many thousands of years until it was unfortunately prohibited in the 20th century due to its connection with cannabis. CBD and hemp are now fully legal in the UK and the EU but sellers of CBD oil cannot make medical claims regarding its benefits.
When hemp and CBD were legalised a few years ago, many people began to take CBD and other cannabinoids extracted from hemp plants to top up their cannabinoid levels and bring more balance to their endocannabinoid systems.
Taking CBD oil helps your body to create more of the cannabinoids that your endocannabinoid system needs to help maintain balance and wellbeing in the body. It is vital to keep this system working well as it helps our immune systems, protects our brains, helps us manage stress and generally keeps our bodies in balance.

What strength CBD should I start with?

If you are new to taking CBD it is wise to start with a low or medium strength CBD oil. If you are a sensitive person, then we recommend you starting with the 3% CBD bottle, although it is perfectly reasonable to start with the 5% CBD bottle.
We recommend starting with the minimal suggested serving on any CBD product and then increase the amount gradually until you reach the results you want.
The World Health Organisation stipulates that CBD is non-toxic, non-addictive, and non-psychoactive and, to date, there are no reports of serious side-effects.
But if you are taking other medication, you should consult with your GP or pharmacist, to check whether there could be any contra-indications.
When you first start taking CBD oils, you should start with a low dose, and start increasing gradually, as per our dosage guide.

THE DEATH OF HARRY CROW Leith C MacArthur

Published through www.unbound.com

“MacArthur not only pulled me into the story, he dragged me into the horror and never let go’. Jack Galvin, Literature Review

4th June 2020|paperback £9.99|Available via Amazon

● A gripping psychological thriller in the on-going series featuring maverick amateur detective and missing child investigator, William Snow. ● Set in New England the novel has a strong sense of time and place, with vividly portrayed characters and an explosive plot line. ● Having lived an unconventional lifestyle with fifty-two job descriptions, Leith is available to talk about finding his true vocation of writing later in life. __________________________________________________________________________

As identical twins Annie and Bailey Crow celebrate their fourteenth birthday, their father Harry is involved in a fiery three-car crash that leaves all occupants dead. Four years after the accident, Annie suddenly vanishes, and her boyfriend is found murdered. Getting little assistance from the police, Annie’s mother seeks the help of William Snow, a local man with a reputation for finding missing children. Snow begins an investigation and soon uncovers an inexplicable link between Annie’s disappearance and her father’s deadly accident. As Snow digs further into this bizarre connection, more people start to disappear. The case eventually leads him to an uninhabited island, a madman known as The Driver, and the twisted truth behind the death of Harry Crow.

About the author:

Leith MacArthur was born in Boston. As a young boy he became fascinated with the craft of writing after reading Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven. At the age of ten, Leith began writing short stories and poems that naturally tended towards the macabre. As an adult Leith went on to write several novels before focusing on a number of related stories that eventually became the William Snow Series of thrillers – The Death of Harry Crow is the fourth.

This Father’s Day, discerning gift-givers looking to spoil the nature lover, woodland walker or stay-at-home birder in their life can choose from a range of visionary presents from SWAROVSKI OPTIK, a world-leading manufacturer of long-range optics.

Handcrafted in Austria, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s gifts for fathers this 21st June include the recently launched dG (digital guide), the first long-range optical device that allows wildlife enthusiasts to observe, identify and share their sightings through its ground-breaking technology. For fathers who are keen to see more during a daily walk immersed in nature, the compact CL Pocket binoculars and the stylish CL Companion binoculars are sure to delight. And for those fathers who enjoy spending afternoons hidden away in their study, the elegantly designed ATX Interior spotting scope is the company’s first telescope designed specifically for indoor use.

For The Technology Trailblazer: SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s dG, From £1,650
For dads who pride themselves on their collection of swanky gadgets and who like to stay ahead of technology trends, SWAROVSKI OPTIK has recently announced the launch of the dG (digital guide), the first long-range optical device that allows nature enthusiasts to easily observe, identify and share sightings of birds. After utilising the 8x magnification power of the dG to locate wildlife, users can digitally document images and videos of their spot via the integrated, high-resolution camera. With the simple push of a button, these are then transferred to a smartphone and identified by the Merlin Bird ID app or the dG Mammals app, which instantly provide information about the species spotted. Social birders can share their discoveries using the device’s integrated Wi-Fi hotspot which allows up to five other users within a five-metre range to live stream sightings using the SWAROVSKI OPTIK dG app. For more information, visit SWAROVSKI OPTIK.

For The Dapper Dad: SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Companion Binoculars, From £970
Ideal for dads who take their style seriously, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Companion binoculars fit perfectly in the hand and are available in either 8x or 10x magnification, ensuring viewing is smooth and jitter-free. Their light weight of 490g and compact size ensures they are the perfect gift for fathers with exquisite taste. For stylish yet practical protection, the elegantly designed binoculars also come with a bespoke accessory package, which consists of a field bag plus a carrying strap and is available in three designs inspired by nature: NORTHERN LIGHTS, URBAN JUNGLE and WILD NATURE. For further details, visit SWAROVSKI OPTIK.

For Outdoor Explorers: SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Pocket Binoculars, From £590
The perfect gift for fathers who are keen to spot wildlife during their daily walks and in their back gardens, SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s CL Pocket binoculars fit into even the smallest of pockets thanks to their robust aluminium housing and conveniently designed foldable bridge. Along with an impressive 119-metre field of view, the binoculars are well-suited for those who wear glasses, thanks to the individually adjustable twist-in eyecups. Although small in size, the ergonomic binoculars don’t compromise on quality and offer unique optical excellence of the highest order in the compact range. For more information, visit SWAROVSKI OPTIK.

For Stay-At-Home Birders: SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s ATX Interior Spotting Scope, From £3,800
