Flutter-backed Cash4Clubs donates £4.8m to grassroots sports campaign

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Email Address Flutter-backed Cash4Clubs donates £4.8m to grassroots sports campaign Finance Cash4Clubs, a charity initiative funded by Flutter Entertainment, has donated £4.8m (€5.6m/$6.7m) to Made by Sport’s ‘Clubs in Crisis’ campaign to help support grassroots sports across the UK and Ireland. Introduced in March last year, this relief meant retail, leisure and hospitality businesses were exempt from paying business rates for 12 months. This initially did not apply to gambling business, but was eventually extended to the industry. Made by Sport will manage the distribution of funds to clubs struggling with the financial impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Topics: Finance “This fund will reach some of the smallest and hardest hit clubs, and for many this will be the difference between permanent closure and the chance to continue the great work they do to address the social inequalities that exist in our communities.” 1st March 2021 | By Robert Fletcher “But now help is needed more than ever and working with Made by Sport to provide a fund for ‘Clubs In Crisis’ is a great way for us to pass the benefit of business rates relief straight into the communities where that funding is most needed.” Flutter’s Cash4Clubs initiative launched in 2008 and has given almost £800,000 to clubs over the past 12 years, including £165,000 in grants in 2020. Last week, the Betting and Gaming Council appealed to Chancellor Rishi Sunak to extend business rates relief for a further year, saying this would support betting shops and casinos that have been forced to close for much of the pandemic. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Regions: UK & Ireland “Lack of funding is not a new issue for community clubs which is why we originally set up our Cash4Clubs programme,” Flutter group chief executive Peter Jackson said. Tags: Flutter Entertainment Cash4Clubs The £4.8m donation being made by Flutter is the amount it benefitted from as a result of business rates relief, which was put in place from March 2020 to March 2021 for its shops in England. Made by Sport chairman Justin King added: “With a quarter of all sports clubs in the UK facing permanent closure, community sport is facing a crisis. As we look to the future and rebuilding our communities, the role of grassroots sports in helping to tackle some of the key social issues exacerbated by the pandemic will be ever more important.last_img read more

Middle school French teacher nominated for District Teacher of the Year

first_imgOutstanding FWISD high school artists work on display Twitter Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature printCara Kuhl, a middle school French teacher, won Campus Teacher of the Year after going the extra mile to support and care for her students.“I was very surprised and very honored,” Mrs. Kuhl said. “For them to have chosen me and have their faith and confidence in me really means a lot.”Kuhl teaches French for 7th and 8th graders at W.P. McLean Middle School. One teacher is elected from each school by fellow teachers for the award. Jamie Grimaldo, the McLean Middle School Spanish teacher, nominated Kuhl for the 2015-2016 school year.“She has such a great heart for her students; she does everything she can to help them learn the language of French,” Grimaldo said. “She will meet up with them and have conversation time at La Madeline sometimes, and they just need to show up and they don’t have to buy anything. They just need to show that they are trying.”Cara Kuhl teaches her students how to make crepes.To earn this award, nominees must “inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn,” according to FWISD.“She has really grown the French program and I have seen some of the stuff she has done with her students and how much she cares for her students,” Grimaldo said.One thing that separates Kuhl from other teachers is her effort to make learning authentic in the classroom.“If we are learning about menus or food we actually look at menus, we go on Google Maps and visit Quebec in Canada and have a virtual field trip,” Kuhl said.The biggest thing Kuhl said engages students is finding out what interests them. She said she tries to relate the language to her students with their hobbies, whether that is playing baseball or singing.Kuhl said that one day she would love to see her students be able to come back to her classroom and be able to carry on a whole conversation in French with her.She will be recognized for her campus teacher of the year reward at a special after-school reception.That reception will also announce the ten semi-finalists for District Teacher of the Year Award who will then advance to the next level.The District Teacher of the Year for secondary and elementary levels will be awarded $5,000. Eight additional finalists will receive $1,000 each. Community judges evaluate applications from the campus teachers to select the winners in each category.The reception will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5 in the atrium of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas.

Limerick’s Hermitage Green ready for The Electric Arena

first_imgTwitter WhatsApp Linkedin Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Hermitage GreenHermitage GreenThis time last year Limerick’s Hermitage Green gave their Electric Picnic debut performance on The Salty Dog stage. Twelve months on and the band is playing a very lucrative Sunday evening slot at The Electric Arena, the festival’s biggest stage under canvas. Hermitage Green’s Barry Murphy spoke to Limerick Post this weekNEXT week Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally will celebrate its tenth year. The festival has always hosted acts that would grow in profile in the future alongside reviving the fortunes of vintage innovators such as Chic and Kraftwerk. Bands on the cusp of mainstream success, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem played epic sets there in 2005.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up On the first Sunday of September 2012, Hermitage Green played Electric Picnic’s Salty Dog stage. Hermitage Green’s Barry Murphy remembers, “We were over the moon with that last year. It went really well. We got a great little crowd there, a great Limerick crowd, and lots of people wandering in.”The Salty Dog stage is located in the forest outside the main venue at Electric Picnic where campers passing through will stumble upon unexpected acts playing on an old shipwreck under the trees, the kind of place to hear a sea shanty from Jerry Fish and The Mugbug Club or The Rubberbandits MCing in the wee hours over a drum ‘n’ bass DJ set.This time around Hermitage Green will play in the Electric Arena on Sunday September 1. Their move to the festival’s second largest stage is a good indication of just how fast the group’s profile has grown in just 12 months. This year Sunday ticket holders will be able to see Hermitage Green perform unlike last year where the Salty Dog stage was out of bounds for one day ticket holders.This will be Hermitage Green’s biggest gig so far. The Electric Arena has a capacity of 7,000 which opens out onto the festival’s most popular hangout area by the bars. Barry says, “At the same time last year The Electric Arena was rammed for Ben Howard and Of Monsters and Men. I wouldn’t be overly confident that we will get that kind of crowd, but it is that kind of festival that people go to listen to bands that they haven’t heard before and we will be hoping for that. We have spent a lot of time on the road in this last year. We have been playing nonstop and hopefully it will stand to us.”After their Salty Dog appearance last year Hermitage Green played their first full all-original material gig to a full house in Dublin’s Academy 2 venue, months later they sold out the bigger capacity Academy 1. Multiple gigs in Whelan’s, The Róisín Dubh in Galway and The Pavilion in Cork were followed by a busy Summer festival schedule this year. Their appeal isn’t just confined to these shores, Hermitage Green have toured Australia twice, France and UK a few times and also brought the show to Dubai and Abu Dhabi and South Africa.It has been nothing short of a phenomenal rise in profile for a band with little radio play, no record contract, not even a manager.What the band does have though is 8,000 Twitter followers, 20,000 fans on facebook and 700,000 views on YouTube for their self produced videos. Barry says, “We have had incredible support from people. We have been lucky, releasing stuff on YouTube and keeping pretty active on facebook and Twitter. We have got massive support from that and a lot of the same people return to our gigs.”It is the kind of exposure that had punters queueing on the streets outside sold-out venues in Perth in Australia. One post on Hermitage Green’s facebook site can reach over 60,000 people via re-posts and discussions.“The videos from the Curraghgower Bar and the tracks recorded at Franciscan Church have got a great response. You just can’t pay for that kind of exposure when people have been re-posting the videos on facebook,” concludes Barry.The Limerick band will play their biggest show to date at Electric Picnic on a night that will be headlined by the UK’s Arctic Monkeys, about to release their fifth album, who in 2004 were one of the very first bands ever to come to the public attention via the Internet on fan site and pioneered how new bands are promoted and marketed today.Next on the horizon for Hermitage Green is finding the right record producer, studio recording and finding new venues and intimate locations to express their craft but first the band play Electric Picnic on Sunday September 1 alongside Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Kodaline and The Strypes to name a few.

Post Crisis: How Do Banks Continue Servicing Home Loans?

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicing 2017-07-10 Brianna Gilpin Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe July 10, 2017 1,451 Views Previous: CFPB Names Advisory Board Members Next: How Deep Are Your Pockets? In an article by Joseph Lawler in the Washington Examiner, Sam Vallandingham, President and CEO of his Barboursville, West Virginia-based First State Bank, explains how he had to revamp his business structure in order to continue making and servicing home loans. The numerous rules made for an extremely difficult time for banks when it came to lending, but on top of that, it imposed a fear of litigation.For some background, while the housing bubble inflated, more and more mortgage lenders were making loans without establishing borrowers income or keeping in mind what would be in the means of the buyer for payments, according to the article. When the bubble finally burst and the foreclosure crisis followed, a nationwide investigation on paperwork and procedure led to the five biggest banks coming to a settlement. At that point, it was decided that servicing loans wasn’t going to be what it had been, the CFPB released new mortgage rules, and the Federal Reserve finalized new capitol rules for banks that put mortgage servicing at a disadvantage.Of all the changes, the article said the requirements to maintain a higher level of capital in banks were the single most important modification. There was a mandate to have a minimum of 10 percent of capital relative to assets. For example, if the bank lends $100 worth of loans, or assets, it can have at most $90 of it own debt to creditors. So, 10 percent of its funding must come from ownership stakes.Losses to bondholders equals crises—they cause panics, according to the article. Losses to shareholders do not cause panics, so higher capital ratios mean that shareholders have more to lose before the bondholders feel vulnerable. Vallandingham said his banks bottom line has taken a hit because of these rules because they are related to, but distinct from their bread-and-butter asset of the home loan. According to many mortgage bankers, the rights to serve mortgages are weighted strictly because they must have 2.5 times the capital for each dollar in mortgage servicing assets.Vallandingham said this is a major hit. They are in the small end, as far as banks go, with just under $200 million in assets, but it services a book of $700 million. When these rules were put in place, it decreased their regulatory capitol by $2 million. This limited the bank’s ability to offer new loans without being in jeopardy of breaking the capitol ratio minimum laws.As far as the future goes, Vallandingham said you either have to sell off you mortgage servicing rights or find a way around it like restructuring so you can continue to service mortgages without incurring capital charges.To read the full article, click here.

He showed an increased interest in learning and it was evident that he wanted to do better.”Gibbons continued to work with Woody far beyond the 10 hours of tutoring that are required for some of the college courses that participate in the tutoring program. She has continued to work with him for two years and added social studies to their program.“Elizabeth has more than 100 tutoring hours and that speaks volumes about her and her dedication,” Colvin said. “Lamar’s confidence level continues to rise and that is important in his school work and carries over into daily life.”Woody said that Giddens is an excellent teacher and went the extra mile to bring understanding to his courses of study. Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “The award is for dedicated and valued community service,” said Teresa Colvin, children’s librarian. “I don’t know of anyone whose service is more dedicated or more valued that Elizabeth’s. She is not the kind of person who wants attention brought to her. She is content to go about ‘serving’ while under the radar. We congratulate her for the difference she has made in a young person’s life.”Colvin said Giddens came into the TPL’s tutoring program for credit in a Troy University class. She began tutoring a seventh grade student in math and spelling.“Lamar Woody transferred from another school into the Troy City School System,” Colvin said. “Elizabeth was very patient in working with him and did a great job of encouraging him. Elizabeth Giddens, a Troy University student, was named the Troy Public Library’s “2012 Outstanding Tutor of the Year.” She was selected through an extensive process from 150 tutors. Pictured with Giddens are Teresa Colvin, TPL children and youth librarian, and Lamar Woody, a student in the library’s tutoring program.Sometimes, it’s those “under the radar” who have the greatest impact.Elizabeth Giddens is one of those.Giddens was selected the Troy Public Library’s 2012 Outstanding Tutor of the Year and was recognized at an award presentation at the library Monday afternoon.

He knows he can achieve and he’s doing it. We have Ms. Giddens to thank. She went far above and beyond to help Lamar. We are so thankful for her.”Giddens, an education major, said that tutoring was a learning experience for her and an experience that she will take with her when she goes into the classroom after graduation for Troy University on Friday.“Working with Lamar helped me realize that not everything I try is going to work,” she said. “I’ve gained the confidence to try different approaches and experience in working individually with a student. I’ve learned so much through tutoring. I’m very thankful for the opportunity.”Colvin said that, as a tutor, Giddens has made a difference in the life of one young student.“There is no doubt that she will be an outstanding teacher and an effective mentor. She will positively impact many young lives over the years,” Colvin said. “It was an honor to recognize her as the Troy Public Library’s Tutor of the Year.” Latest Storieslast_img read more
