Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Anyone who owns shares in Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) has had a rough year. Lloyds’ share price has fallen by more than 50% since the start of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has triggered fears that banks could face a sharp rise in bad debt.The bank’s business is totally focused on the UK, which is now officially in recession. We’re all hoping the UK will bounce back quickly. But the reality is that we don’t know how long it will take for economy to recover.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, given what we do know, I think there are good reasons to believe Lloyds shares are too cheap at current levels.#1: the bad news is in the priceIt’s important to remember markets always look forward. I believe Lloyds shares are already priced for bad news. In its half-year results at the end of July, Lloyds warned investors it’s planning for bad debts of around £5bn this year. That’s nearly four times more than the £1.3bn reported for 2019.At this stage, Lloyds’ bad debt numbers are only estimates. Things may turn out better than this. Recent data from estate agents and car dealership certainly suggest consumers are starting to spend again.However, my sums suggest that if Lloyds’ central forecasts are correct, the bank’s tangible net asset value would fall from 51.6p per share to around 44.5p per share. With the stock trading at just 28p as I write, I think that still leaves a healthy margin of safety for investors.#2: Lloyds is still one of the best performersLloyds also has another attraction, in my view. It’s more profitable than UK-focused rivals such as NatWest Group (the new name for RBS). During the first half of the year, Lloyds generated a net interest margin — a measure of lending profitability — of 2.59%. The equivalent figure for NatWest Group was just 1.62%.One reason for this is that Lloyds’ costs are lower. During the first half of the year, the bank’s costs accounted for 55.2% of its income, compared to 62.8% at NatWest Group. Lloyds’ lower costs should mean that profits bounce back more quickly.Lloyds was the most profitable of the UK’s big high street banks before the coronavirus pandemic. I don’t think this will change. That should help the bank’s profits bounce back more quickly than at less profitable peers.#3: Lloyds share price suggests 5.5% dividend yieldBanks were forced to suspend dividend payments by the UK regulator earlier this year. Several made it clear they could have paid, but had no choice but to comply.The news was a bitter blow for income investors. But I’m pretty confident the dividend will return in 2021. Analysts’ forecasts suggest a payout of 1.58p per share next year, giving a forecast yield of 5.5%. That looks realistic to me. Despite this year’s disappointment, I believe Lloyds will remain a solid choice for income seekers,Ultimately, sentiment towards the UK economy is dire at the moment. The Lloyds share price reflects this. But, at some point, things will improve. In my view, now’s probably a good time to buy some shares and tuck them away for the future. I don’t think they’ll get much cheaper than this.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Matthew Dumigan | Tuesday, 30th March, 2021 | More on: DGE ULVR 2 of the best FTSE 100 shares to buy in a Stocks and Shares ISA in 2021 With the end of the tax year fast approaching, I’ve been thinking about some of the best FTSE 100 shares I could buy inside a Stocks and Shares ISA for the remainder of 2021 and beyond.Two companies that immediately sprang to mind were index titans Unilever (LSE: ULVR) and Diageo (LSE: DGE). Both are in the top five largest companies by market capitalisation within the FTSE 100 index.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…With that in mind, here’s a closer look at why I think they’re among the best UK shares to buy for my investment ISA.A global reach and much-loved brandsFirst up, I’m going to discuss Unilever. The multinational consumer goods company is a real industry giant. In fact, its many brands are household names across the world.It wouldn’t be going too far to say that Unilever has a truly global reach, which is a quality that has enabled the company to weather the pandemic storm reasonably well over the past year.Furthermore, exposure to hygiene products and in-home foods helped offset weaker sales growth in beauty and personal care products throughout last year. This resulted in a 1.9% increase in full-year underlying sales.However, there are tangible risks ahead for the company to navigate. For instance, as long as lockdown restrictions remain in place, sluggish sales growth in the sectors that rely on the economy opening up will hold back the group’s potential.Furthermore, it’s possible that the rising presence of smaller brands and cheaper own-brand options could threaten growth over the long term, potentially weakening the loyalty of Unilever’s consumer base.Nevertheless, I’m confident that the sheer size and reach of Unilever will be enough to ensure the group can reaffirm its position as a market leader.Not to mention the growth prospects arising from the company’s business rejuvenation, which will include the sale of the tea business in developed markets.Thus, for the time being, my focus is on whether or not Unilever can achieve an attractive level of growth over the long term.What’s more, since I believe the potential benefits outweigh the risks, I’m confident Unilever is one of the best FTSE 100 shares I could add to my Investment ISA today.Emerging markets exposureThe second company I’d buy inside a Stocks and Shares ISA is multinational alcoholic beverages business Diageo.After a rough period throughout the pandemic, I’m confident that the rising prospects of relaxed lockdown restrictions and the reopening of the economy at home spell good news for the group.After all, the likely boom of the hospitality business will certainly benefit Diageo’s share price.However, it won’t be plain sailing. The group carries a substantial amount of debt, which poses a tangible risk if future lockdowns remain a possibility. Furthermore, performance in developed markets has been lacklustre in recent years.That said, increased exposure to the growing middle classes within emerging markets could prove to be a catalyst for further growth if developed markets become less lucrative.Ultimately, with big brand names such as Gordon’s, Guinness and Johnnie Walker, I think Diageo is well-positioned to stage a strong post-pandemic recovery.In my eyes, it ranks alongside Unilever as one of the best FTSE 100 shares I could buy today. Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment.

Jack Gorsuch, shown at left in a photo from a 2017 memorial service bulletin, was called “a hero of mine” by his nephew, Neil Gorsuch, at his Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Justice Gorsuch is shown in a Reuters photo.[Episcopal News Service] Facing the 20 U.S. senators who stood between him and a seat on the nation’s highest court, the nominee introduced himself by reading a statement that identified five men as his personal heroes. Four of those men were sitting or former Supreme Court justices. The fifth was an Episcopal priest – the Rev. John Gorsuch, the nominee’s late uncle.“We recently lost my Uncle Jack, a hero of mine,” Judge Neil Gorsuch said in the 16-minute opening statement of his confirmation hearing on March 20, 2017. Before continuing, he paused to look over his right shoulder at Meg Hopkins, his cousin and Jack Gorsuch’s daughter, who was seated behind him with other family members.“He gave the benediction when I took an oath as a judge 11 years ago. I confess I was hoping he might offer a similar prayer soon,” Gorsuch said.Judge Neil Gorsuch reads an opening statement on March 20, 2017, during his Supreme Court confirmation hearing. Photo: White House via videoNews articles at the time of Gorsuch’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court noted that he, his wife and their two daughters regularly attended services at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado, which The Washington Post described as “a notably liberal church.” Since his confirmation as an associate justice on April 7, 2017, Gorsuch has earned a reputation as a reliable member of the Supreme Court’s conservative bloc.Gorsuch begins his third full term on the Supreme Court on Oct. 7, but since his nomination, little has been reported about the uncle he remembered fondly at his confirmation hearing. The nephew’s high-profile shoutout only hinted at the breadth of the uncle’s winding 85-year spiritual journey.“My father was a big, expansive thinker, so within that there was room for a lot,” Hopkins, who lives in Mequon, Wisconsin, said in an interview with Episcopal News Service about her father. “He was a progressive person,” she said, but that created no distance between him and Hopkins’ more conservative cousin.“Neil and my dad loved each other very much, and it didn’t make any difference what their political views were,” she said.Jack Gorsuch, who died just a month before his nephew’s confirmation hearing, was a Yale Divinity School graduate and runner-up in 1975 for bishop of the Diocese of Olympia. He led his congregation in Seattle, Washington, through the city’s racial upheaval in the 1970s, championed the ordination of women and later quit parish life to open a spirituality and meditation center with his wife, Beverly Gorsuch, a psychotherapist.The Rev. Jana Troutman-Miller and the Rev. Jack Gorsuch pose for a photo at an event at St. John’s On The Lake, a retirement community where the two Episcopal priests collaborated on a spirituality group for residents. Photo courtesy of Jana Troutman-MillerEven in his final years, Jack Gorsuch remained active in religious ministry. Living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at St. John’s On The Lake, an Episcopal retirement community, Gorsuch partnered with the staff chaplain to start a spirituality group for residents.“He was just a great guy. He was just very sweet and gentle, had a really great sense of humor,” the Rev. Jana Troutman-Miller, chaplain at St. John’s On The Lake, told ENS. Gorsuch made many friends there in just over two years, she said. “He was just one of those personalities that attracted a lot of people. A lot of those folks went to him for spiritual advice.”Justice Neil Gorsuch, who declined an interview for this story, recently published a book, “A Republic, If You Can Keep It,” about his judicial philosophy and the importance of civil discourse in American public life. He has avoided speaking publicly about his faith and spiritual background.“People would view that as me tacitly admitting it has something to do with my day job, and I reject that,” Gorsuch said in an interview with a Wall Street Journal editorial board member. He acknowledged, though, that faith is “a great reservoir of strength for me. I need it, as a person.”His uncle, on the other hand, left little written record of his political views but spoke openly of his faith – from the pulpit, during contemplative prayer gatherings, at the spiritual development center he co-founded, in written messages to fellow Yale Divinity alumni and in his 1990 book, “An Invitation to the Spiritual Journey.”The book was a primer on looking inward for God’s presence, but Gorsuch briefly turned his focus outward.“At our best in contemporary America we are attuned to a spirit of warm generosity and openness of spirit that makes room for great diversity and welcomes the best efforts of all citizens to better themselves. At our worst attunement is wolfish,” Gorsuch wrote. “Each part of the larger whole undertakes only its own gain.”Parish priest in a time of changeThe Rev. Jack Gorsuch is seen in an undated photo from his 17 years as rector of Epiphany Episcopal Church in Seattle, Washington. Photo: Epiphany Episcopal ChurchA news article in 1985 described Gorsuch as “a lanky, relaxed father of two.” In portraits at various ages, his appearance is virtually unchanged: round glasses, white clergy collar, his hair parted loosely into a wave, a welcoming smile bubbling from a reservoir of optimism.Neil Gorsuch, a native of Denver, Colorado, wrote in the introduction to his book that his life’s story “has its roots in the American West.” The same could be said for his uncle.Jack Gorsuch was born Feb. 1, 1932, in Denver, the oldest of four children. Their father, the elder John Gorsuch, drove a trolley to pay his way through college before opening a law firm. “He cared deeply about his community and he showed it,” Neil Gorsuch wrote of his grandfather. “By his example, he taught me to care about my community, work hard, and make the time we have here count – and to be sure to laugh a lot along the way.”Jack Gorsuch, older brother of Neil Gorsuch’s father, attended public schools in Denver before moving to Connecticut to attend Wesleyan University. He was president of his fraternity and in 1953 earned a bachelor’s degree in intellectual history. In 1956, he graduated from Yale Divinity and was ordained a priest by Washington Bishop Angus Dun at Washington National Cathedral. Parish work followed, in Washington, D.C., and Kansas.A Diocese of Olympia newsletter features an article about the Rev. Jack Gorsuch being called as rector of Epiphany Episcopal Church in Seattle in 1968. Photo: Diocese of OlympiaIn 1963, he was called to serve as rector of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Yakima, Washington, a midsize city southeast of Seattle in the mostly rural Diocese of Spokane, and within a few years he was one of 55 candidates vying for rector at the larger Epiphany Episcopal Church in Seattle’s Madrona neighborhood bordering Lake Washington.“This is a time when the foundations are shaking all about us,” Gorsuch wrote in a brief essay submitted to Epiphany along with his biographical details, yet parish ministry remained to him an “indispensable tool of God,” specifically for worship, formation, pastoral care and outreach. He added that congregations may need to rethink their claims to a mere “spectator” role in society.“What about the role of the parish church in revolutionary times like ours?” he continued. “The job of the parish clergyman today, as I see it, is neither to be a milquetoast nor a brash martyr, but, wherever possible, a prophetic spokesman for God and a sensitive servant of people.”Epiphany welcomed Gorsuch as its new rector at a ceremony in October 1968. The church and priest “were soon venturing into new liturgical, theological and cultural territory,” Barbara Stenson Spaeth, a longtime member of Epiphany, wrote in her 2007 centennial history of the parish. A decade later, she wrote of his influence in a memorial tribute for the church’s newsletter. “The Rev. John P. Gorsuch, witty, innovative and progressive, undoubtedly transformed Madrona’s Epiphany Church, and in significant ways, the wider Episcopal Church in our city and region.”Epiphany in 1968 lay on the fault line of redlined housing segregation in Seattle, Spaeth told ENS. That divide fueled increasing tensions in the late 1960s and early 1970s between the racially diverse Madrona neighborhood to the south and the primarily white Denny-Blaine neighborhood to the north.Gorsuch “was, in this community, a leader in civil rights advocacy and racial integration,” Spaeth said. He visited with residents in their homes, listening to white neighbors who felt wary of integration and listening to black neighbors who said they didn’t feel welcomed at Epiphany.He invited them all to the church.Gorsuch also oversaw the congregation’s decision to separate from its adjoining private school, which had become a magnet for children from affluent white families who weren’t Epiphany members. He developed connections with the interreligious faith community in Seattle. He rallied the congregation together in the wake of a 1975 arson attack on the church, which luckily sustained little more than smoke damage in the fire.And on Feb. 3, 1977, he preached at Epiphany during the ordination of the Rev. Laura Fraser, the first female priest in the Diocese of Olympia. The service drew intense media coverage and was remembered as “one of the ‘happenings of the 1970s’” in Seattle, according to the Post-Intelligencer. Fraser had “created a sensation.”Opponents of women’s ordination held a rival service across town on the same day. At General Convention the previous year, Olympia Bishop Robert Cochrane had voted against the resolution that paved the way for women to become priests, but he still agreed to preside at Fraser’s ordination. More than 50 clergy members from around the country attended, and the service was seen as “a real victory,” one of those priests recalled in 2002.In championing such issues, Spaeth suggested Gorsuch was ahead of his time. “In his day, in that era, which was so transformative and so full of change for the city, he was definitely on what anyone would call a progressive track,” she said. “The character of the church today, at least in our part of the world, matches what Jack would have wanted.”‘I took an inward turn’Later in life, Gorsuch looked back on that time and noted he was growing disillusioned with career ambitions within the church – a “good midlife crisis” brought on by a lost bishop election.A diocesan publication includes the Rev. Jack Gorsuch’s responses to a questionnaire in 1975 when he was a candidate for bishop of the diocese. Photo: Diocese of Olympia“Moving into the episcopacy seemed to me like the outcome of a fairly fast run up the church chairs,” he wrote in “An Invitation to the Spiritual Journey.” In 1975, he and Cochrane were finalists to lead the Diocese of Olympia, but Cochrane, then rector of Christ Church in Tacoma and chaplain to the city’s police department, was seen as a more conservative candidate. Cochrane won on the eighth ballot.The loss was a humbling blow to Gorsuch. His parish, though sympathetic, was glad to have him for a few more years.“He should have been our bishop, but we are grateful he stayed our rector,” Spaeth told ENS.Just six months later, he again was a finalist for bishop, this time in the Diocese of Indianapolis, but Gorsuch never made it to the ballot there. One night he dreamed he was being vested in a cope and miter, but they suddenly went up in smoke, revealing a baby bathed in light. He called up the search committee the next day and withdrew from consideration.“I took an inward turn, and I’ve been on an inner journey ever since,” Gorsuch said years later in a Seattle Post-Intelligencer story. In his book, Gorsuch gave a longer explanation for his inward turn, saying he felt guilty that he was letting his daily routine and personal ambitions distract him from cultivating a deeper relationship with God.“I was someone who had gotten too busy for God,” he said. “I had taught courses on the spiritual life and prayer in adult education classes with some success, but my own spiritual life was underdeveloped,” he said. He began reading and rereading books by those “who had taken the spiritual journey another step,” from St. Teresa of Avila to Thomas Merton.By 1981, his spiritual exploration was reflected in a biographical message he wrote for the 25th anniversary of his Yale class. “I’ve gone much deeper into prayer and meditation, and have increasingly found that God is much more than a theological premise or ‘sometime reality,’” he said. “At the same time exciting things are going on in this parish.”He concluded, “I’m not terribly optimistic about everything that’s happening in the American scene right now, but I am increasingly aware of the grace of God. It’s a tough and glorious time to be alive.”President Ronald Reagan had just taken office and appointed Gorsuch’s sister-in-law, Anne Gorsuch, as EPA administrator. The job required her to move her family, including her 13-year-old son, Neil Gorsuch, from Colorado to Washington, D.C. The teen’s parents divorced a year later. Anne Gorsuch, shortly after remarrying, resigned from the EPA in 1983 amid a scandal related to her ties to chemical companies.The year 1983 was pivotal for Jack Gorsuch. He was granted a sabbatical, during which he visited a Benedictine monastery in New Mexico, studied deep meditation at a spiritual community in California and trained as a spiritual director at the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation in Washington, D.C.In his final two years at Epiphany, he was leading two contemplative prayer groups, as well as a “God 202” class for new and returning church members. In 1985, he resigned as rector, and he and Beverly Gorsuch opened the Center for Spiritual Development in rented space on St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral’s campus in Seattle.The Rev. Jack Gorsuch participates in the October 2014 ordination ceremony for the Rev. Jana Troutman-Miller at St. John’s On The Lake in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Photo courtesy of Jana Troutman-Miller“I think they always defined themselves as Episcopalians,” Hopkins said of her parents, but they became more interested in “helping others in the inner journey” than in their own professional advancement.The ecumenical, nonprofit spiritual center was “designed to help people explore, deepen and affirm the place of God in their lives without underestimating the challenges along the way,” according to the center’s introductory brochure. For more than five years, the Gorsuches led classes and retreats at the center. In 1991, they handed over the reins to a new executive director, the Rev. Jerry Hanna, a fellow Episcopal priest.Hanna, now 80, is vicar of St. David Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Shoreline, Washington. In an interview, he said, the center rode the waves of broader trends in American spirituality.“We were in kind of a descending peak of the New Age movement, which involved a lot of esoteric, and what we could say, semimystical experiences and teachings, so it was really a hotbed of those kinds of spiritualities, which were proliferating all over the country,” Hanna said. He remained at the center for nearly three decades, until it closed this year.Hanna told ENS he had been trained in the transcendental meditation tradition, while “Jack was a traditionalist, in the sense that he attached himself first to centering prayer and teaching spiritual direction.”In his forward to Gorsuch’s 1990 book, Gerald May wrote that Gorsuch grounded his spiritual teachings in theology, scripture, psychology and “a realistic appraisal of the graces and confusions of modern daily life.” Gorsuch had studied with May at the Shalem Institute, where May served as spiritual director.“His journey has inspired mine as I have seen him claim and act upon his desire to seek a deeper and more direct conscious relationship with God, and to help others do the same,” wrote May.‘More to learn, more to grow’Gorsuch’s 17 years at Epiphany spanned nearly the entire childhood of his nephew, the future Supreme Court justice, and Neil Gorsuch’s subsequent college years and professional life coincided with his uncle’s spiritual journey beyond The Episcopal Church.Neil Gorsuch, who was raised in the Roman Catholic Church, earned his bachelor’s degree from Columbia University in 1988 and graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991. He worked as a law clerk to a federal appeals court judge just as Jack Gorsuch was stepping away from the Center for Spiritual Development.In 1996, he married Marie Louise Burleston, a British graduate student he had met while working on his doctorate at Oxford University. Louise, as she is known, grew up in the Church of England, and when the Gorsuches returned to the United States together, they became members of Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Vienna, Virginia, according to a CNN report on Gorsuch’s faith background.While Neil Gorsuch lived in Virginia and clerked for Supreme Court Justices Byron White and Anthony Kennedy before venturing into private law practice, Jack and Beverly Gorsuch spent eight years living at an ashram in California focused on East-West spirituality.Both of Neil Gorsuch’s parents died in the early years of the new century, before he began working for the Department of Justice in 2005. With his parents gone, Gorsuch’s bond with his uncle strengthened, Hopkins said. “Neil and my dad were just personally super close, had just a really sweet, personal relationship,” she said.Appellate Court Judge Neil Gorsuch reacts to comments made by speakers at a swearing-in ceremony Nov. 20, 2006 in Denver.

He became fast friends with Troutman-Miller, the chaplain, and participated in her ordination ceremony that October. In 2016, during his final year, they collaborated on a “saging” group, in which 10 or so people gathered to discuss spiritual questions related to aging.Troutman-Miller said Gorsuch was personally exploring the same questions for himself.“Being in his 80s, he was very much looking at what comes next and the experience of continual learning and growth that happens after death,” Troutman-Miller said. “He was convinced that it doesn’t just stop, the learning and growth doesn’t just stop with death, but there’s more to learn, more to grow.”Beverly and Jack Gorsuch are all smiles during a gathering at St. John’s On The Lake, a retirement community where they moved in 2014. Photo: Jana Troutman-MillerWhen President Donald Trump announced on Jan. 31, 2017, he was nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, the family greeted the news with pride, and on a group call with family members, “the pastor joked that some of the people on the line were Democrats,” according to CNN.The nomination became a topic of conversation around St. John’s On The Lake only because residents made the connection between the name making headlines and their friend, the Episcopal priest, Troutman-Miller said. He would hint that his politics didn’t neatly align with his nephew’s politics, but “he was gracious to his nephew,” she said.The service bulletin from a May 20, 2017, memorial service at Epiphany Episcopal Church in Seattle, Washington, features this undated photo of the Rev. Jack Gorsuch.Jack Gorsuch, 85, died on Feb. 15, 2017, two weeks after his nephew’s nomination to the Supreme Court. A funeral service was held at St. John’s On The Lake’s chapel, and three months later, in Seattle, Epiphany celebrated Gorsuch’s life in a memorial service. His two daughters and a former clergy colleague gave eulogies.One of the readings was from Gorsuch’s own book: “The place to start with the spiritual journey, when with the help of trust we move beyond our stuck places, is with ourselves before a God who takes us where and as we are. There is no other place to begin. We are who we are. We are no less and no more farther along the path than at this moment. This is great ‘good news.’”Hopkins, 57, said her father’s death likely was still fresh on the mind of Neil Gorsuch as he sat one month later for his confirmation hearing, one reason he gave a nod to the uncle in his opening statement.Jack Gorsuch may not be alive to speak at his nephew’s swearing-in ceremony for the Supreme Court, but “as it is, I know he is smiling,” his nephew said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. NHS Charities Together has today announced that it has raised £100 million through its COVID-19 appeal in six weeks. The charity has already distributed £20 million to its member charities across the UK that have been working to support NHS staff, volunteers and their patients through the Covid-19 appeal. As well as Captain Tom Moore’s £30 million, raised through walking laps of his garden, fundraising for NHS Charities Together has included fun runs, charity singles, virtual quizzes, and the streaming of films and plays. Corporate donors across sectors including retail, sport and finance have also supported the appeal.The charity is keeping the appeal live, with the hopes of raising more funds to support recovery after the first phase of the pandemic is over. The funds will be used by local NHS charities to support the mental health of staff and volunteers that have been negatively affected by the pandemic, and to fund partnerships in the community to help patients who have left hospital to recover fully at home.Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together, said:“We have been completely overwhelmed and delighted by the response our appeal has received. This pandemic is unlike anything we have seen in our lifetimes and we’ve been so humbled by the nation rallying in support of NHS staff, volunteers and patients. But we know that while the peak of new cases might have been reached, the work of the NHS is far from done.“We must now look to the future and how we can combat the effects of COVID-19 on the mental and physical health of our NHS workers and volunteers, as well as patients. We look forward to working with our partners, and the public, as we move into this next phase. But first, we wanted to thank everyone who has already donated their time and resources so generously: your efforts are already having a huge impact and will continue to do so.”The donations received so far have been distributed across the country. With hospital patients unable to see their loved ones because of the social distancing measures, donations have purchased tablets so they can connect virtually. Nutritious meals and welfare packs containing drinks and snacks have been distributed to hospital staff. Donations have also bought kettles, microwaves, fridges and radios to help meet the needs of many more people working longer shifts.To support the mental health and wellbeing of NHS staff and volunteers, funding has also been used to set up wobble rooms, where staff can take time out when they need to. Hospitals like St George’s in South London have installed wellbeing pods where tired doctors and nurses can take a power nap during long shifts. Other hospitals, like Harefield, have started Listening Ear programmes with the funding they have received, providing someone for NHS workers to talk to for emotional support.Donations have also paid for accommodation for NHS workers staying away from home as well as toiletries and other essentials for while they are there.The donations will also help partnerships outside hospitals, such as hospices, community healthcare and social care, to help ensure that patients who leave hospital have access to the care they need to recover. 1,043 total views, 2 views today 1,044 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 NHS Charities Together raises £100m through Covid-19 appeal Melanie May | 6 May 2020 | News More on the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Appeal:NHS Charities Together Appeal receives £10m donation from XTX Markets 27 March#ONEMILLIONCLAPS appeal launches to raise £5m for NHS staff 9 April 2020Aviva pledges £5m to NHS Charities Together & £10m to British Red Cross 15 April 202099-year-old veteran passes £5m mark with laps of his garden 15 April 2020Captain Tom breaks records & fundraisers raise millions on JustGiving for Covid-19 causes 16 April 2020 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Advertisement Tagged with: COVID-19 NHS
Reporters Without Borders is worried by recent court rulings requested by candidates that have curbed press coverage of the election campaign two days before the second round on 29 October. The organisation says the electoral law is incompatible with appropriate press coverage of the campaign.

On 19 October, the federal Superior Electoral Court (TSE) fined CBN radio for “electoral propaganda” and ordered it to censor its website. On 25 October, the Regional Electoral Court (TRE) in the southern state of Paraná banned the media from reporting on a police raid at the request of a gubernatorial candidate.“These judicial decisions reflect a very strange idea of the role of the press, which is obviously supposed to be a forum for political debate but which also entitled to take a position,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By banning all propaganda during election campaigns, the electoral law seems to be out of tune with media coverage of politics.”The press freedom organisation added: “A media’s editorial position often entails a preference for a particular candidate, but the TSE’s ruling exaggeratedly assumes that every reader or listener will follow it. This attributes much more power to the press than it in fact has. As for the ruling issued by the Paraná TRE at the request of gubernatorial candidate Osmar Dias, it does not really serve his electoral interests. Does he think he will be protected by preventive censorship? This kind of censorship belongs to the past.”The TSE fined CBN 10,000 dollars on 19 October after one of its commentators, Arnaldo Jabor, expressed an opinion that was deemed overly favourable to opposition presidential candidate Geraldo Alckmin. Acting in response to a complaint by President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s reelection campaign, the TSE also ordered CBN to withdraw the comment from its website, ruling that it had violated an electoral law ban on all propaganda during the election campaign (which officially began on 1 July).In response to Dias’ complaint, the Paraná TRE fine the Hora H News website on 25 October for publishing information about the seizure by the police of a trunk full of banknotes from a hotel in the state capital of Curitiba two days earlier. Judge Renato Lopes de Paiva ruled that the report was liable to “prejudice” Dias, who is tipped by the polls to lose.Citing “judicial confidentiality,” the judge rounded off his ruling with a ban on all media coverage of the police raid. Journalists’ unions have contested the ruling, claiming that it violates the federal constitutional right of access to information.

Sources told RSF that the mining company tried repeatedly to buy the silence of journalists in the region, offering them 4,000 lempiras (about 150 euros) not to cover its activities.The journalists who refused to be bribed and went to the camp on 27 October to cover the eviction were immediately targeted. Police and soldiers insulted them, used physical violence, fired teargas at them, and confiscated and destroyed equipment.Stones were thrown at Rigoberto Mendoza while he was filming, and one hit him in the stomach. One of his colleagues found marijuana hidden inside the bag that had been taken from him during the operation. “We condemn this extremely serious obstruction of the right to inform and call on the judicial authorities to identify and punish those responsible for these violent attacks,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “These reporters are still in great danger and need urgent measures by the National Mechanism for the Protection of Journalists.”Independent journalists in Tocoa who refuse to ignore these illegal mining activities continue to be harassed by the police and by the mining company’s security staff, and keep getting anonymous messages containing death threats.As a result of criticizing a claim by a member of the National Human Rights Commission (CONADEH) that the eviction was peaceful, Rigoberto Mendoza told RSF that he fears for his life because he is being followed and watched, and receives threats every day.Honduras is ranked 141st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.
