Journalists' Charity wants new media members

The Journalists' Charity, founded by among others Charles Dickens, needs to recruit new members working in new media, its chairman Chris Boffey said last night.
Boffey, news editor of The Observer, was giving the address at the journalists' carol concert at St. Bride's, Fleet Street. He said: "What we most need is new members from new media." Boffey wished everyone a New Year of "full employment". Those who help run the charity, which has a care home in Dorking for retired and elderly journalists, say they are having an increasing number of journalists in their 40s and early 50s coming to them for help because of the high level of redundancies across the industry.
The concert was in aid of the Journalists' Charity and supported by Luther Pendragon. To find out more visit the Journalists' Charity website.

Children are the most precious gift of God to the human beings and it needs special care and attention to grow into a sensible person. But the misfortune is that most of the children are living in distress and poverty, which is stealing their entire childhood. To provide help to such children is the noblest gesture that one can show towards these children. Sponsoring a child will not only help the child to live a better life but it will also provide you with immense satisfaction and peace. Latest research has proved that a child dies in every three seconds due to lack of vital necessities. It is needless to say that education for these children is a vision that they can only dream about.
