We can all agree that the heroes working for our NHS deserve the world and more, and that’s why stories about the public showing them their appreciation need as much coverage as possible.

One such story has been shared by David Tillyer, a paramedic at the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust, who had just finished a night shift and popped over to Lidl to do some shopping.

When he arrived there was a large queue outside, but one by one everyone in it let him go ahead of them, followed by a huge round of applause and messages of thanks.

Then once he’d finished his shopping, a woman he’d been talking to insisted she paid for it all, swiping her card to cover the charges.

David took to social media to share the amazing story, where it received a massive response, racking up hundreds of thousands of likes and shares.

He wrote on Facebook: “I am humbled and a little bit emotional. I finished my night shift this morning and joined the line of shoppers waiting to enter Lidl in Cromer. One by one they all let me ahead of them followed by a round of applause and thank yous.

“Once I’d done my round of shopping inside, a lady I’d been chatting to in the queue ran up and swiped her card on the reader to pay for my shopping. I tried to say ‘that’s kind but you mustn’t’ but she said with a smile ‘not much you can do to stop me now’.

“Thank you to the lady that did that and thank you to all the shoppers that made me feel special after a tough run of shifts.”

Cat from Rochdale who went missing 12 years ago has been found 230 miles away from home

Wow!

A cat from Greater Manchester vanished 12 years ago, but has now been discovered living on a campsite 230 miles away from home. 

Georgie, a 15 year-old-cat, has been missing since 2008, when she disappeared while the family were on a camping trip in Scotland.

The cat has been living on a campsite in Loch Lomond for a year, which is due to close. Rescuers were baffled to find the microchip registered to an address hundreds of miles away in Rochdale.

Rescuers have said her life for the past decade will ‘forever remain a mystery’. 

Cats Protection Glasgow

Cats Protection Glasgow said: “Georgie’s family got her as a kitten and from when she was 12 weeks old onwards, she enjoyed regular camping trips with her family starting out on a lead.

“Eventually she would roam the grounds of where they were staying and would always come back no problem.

“Twelve years ago, her owner had a baby and Georgie took exception to this, so when they came up here to Loch Lomond on a camping trip in October 2008, on the final day, Georgie disappeared and never returned.

“Where she has been for the past 12 years might forever remain a mystery but she’s still really friendly so suspect she has definitely been around humans.”

Georgie’s shocked family have decided to not collect their cat and instead rehome her. 

Thank you so much for everyone’s comments & shares. We are now in touch with Georgie’s owner & we will update on the situation tomorrow as she has been missing for 12 years.

Posted by Cats Protection Glasgow Adoption Centre Lost & Found on Monday, 27 July 2020

Rescuers continued: “Her family were obviously extremely shocked to find out that Georgie has been found 12 years later and although their heart is telling them to drive up to Glasgow straight away to collect her, all of us know it’s not the right thing for Georgie.

“Her family got another cat nine years ago who doesn’t like other cats and we suspect Georgie also doesn’t like other cats so it wouldn’t work and it would be quite a journey home for her only to discover what we already know.

“So Georgie will be cared for by us until we are ready to find her another loving home. Her previous family will keep in touch with us to find out how she’s doing while she’s with us.”

Cats Protection added this incident shows the importance of microchipping pets.

They said: “This story just shows the importance of microchipping your pet and also a message to everyone who has a missing pet, don’t give up hope as Georgie has been found after 12 years.”

We’ll never know what she got up to for the past decade but at least she’s been found safe and sound!

Mark Labbet, aka The Beast from The Chase, has wowed fans with an impressive weight loss. 

He donned baggy trousers in a picture he shared on Twitter, saying he has a ‘long way to go’  but that he’s pleased with his weight loss efforts.

The quizmaster has been applauded by fans, with many saying ‘well done’, and another person adding ‘looking good’.

Another wrote ‘well-done lad, good on ya. It’s a hard graft especially after all the lockdown madness’. 

The 6ft 6ins 54-year-old weighed 378lbs at his heaviest, but has detailed how his body has transformed in 2018. 

Mark has previously turned down I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! for fears the diet of rice and beans wouldn’t be substantial enough for him.

He said: “I’ve been asked to do the jungle but the base calorie intake is about 700. Look at me! If I survived a week I’d drop three stone and cannibalism would be on the cards.

“On Sugar Free Farm the weight fell off me because I couldn’t eat enough. Does ‘The Chase’ need me big? Put it this way, whenever I start losing weight because I’m doing a fitness kick of whatever, the producers go past me and hand me a second portion of pudding.”

The Curly Girl Method is a special technique for transforming curly hair and getting frizz-free locks. 

The method, which bans shampoo, took social media by storm over recent years due to how well it transforms curly hair into luscious locks. 

Anyone with curly hair knows the struggles of battling the frizz and maintaining perfect curls, but most people who try the Curly Girth Method never go back. 

The Curly Girl Method was that life-changing, Lorain Massey who created the method, wrote a book about it: Curly Girl: The Handbook.

Essentially it involves re-training what you know about hair and letting it fall into its natural curl pattern. 

Firstly, if you’ve never heard of this before I don’t know how because the fan base for this is almost as strong as Beliebers back in 2010. A quick Google search will see you bombarded with well over 42,000 results and there are even dedicated Facebook groups of supporters of the method. 

The best thing to do is to pick up a copy of the book or join one of those Facebook groups for fool-proof tips. 

Once you’re ready to commit to a new frizz free life there are a few main dos and don’ts.

One of the biggest changes will see you stopping using any shampoo at all. You also want to throw away your curling iron, straighteners and even brushes. 

You’re going to need to start reading the labels of any hair products, getting rid of anything that contains sulfates. While you’re at it, throw away anything with silicones, alcohol, fragrance and any non-water soluble formulas. 

Instead, the Curly Girl Method needs you to ween off shampoo and instead condition your hair around once a week. 

You should also opt for products that are rich in emollients like shea butter and proteins like wheat. It also recommends styling gel with ingredients like PVP that you scrunch up into your hair to define the curls. 

Most Curly Girls’ (and boys!) let their hair dry naturally, avoiding heat completely and usually leave in some conditioner.

Depending on how curly your hair is will depend on the exact method you should use. For coily hair, wrap your hair up with a leave-in conditioner for around 15 minutes before rinsing completely. Wavy hair should leave a little conditioner in and curly hair can either rinse or leave-in.

If you do want to dry your hair, the method recommends using a diffuser whilst bent forward and continuing to scrunch the curls up from the ends towards the scalp. But most people see enough success letting their hair air dry or blotting dry with a towel. 

It takes people around three months to fully see a difference and get used to a new curly way of life.
