Green Halloween

At Halloween about 30 million people in the UK opt to dress up and more than 90 per cent of families will consider buying costumes. However, seven million of those costumes will get thrown out each year, with only a small number getting recycled.

As quoted in the Guardian, Chris Rose of the Fairyland Trust* explained:

“the scariest thing about Halloween now is plastic.”

With its growing popularity, he says “consumers can take action to avoid buying new plastic and still dress up for Halloween by buying from charity shops or re-using costumes, or making their own from non-plastic materials.”

With the majority of costumes sold by popular retailers like Asda and Tesco made from oil-based non-biodegradable fibres like polyester, PVC, nylon and acrylic, the level of textile waste generated by Halloween contributes dramatically to the already staggering 300,000+ tonnes of clothing discarded in UK landfills. Creating an abundance of microplastic pollution.

Creative Alternatives!

Craft your own costume from ReMode’s scraps and fabric donations, as well as simple household items like tin foil, cardboard, laddered tights and old curtains. Autumn is an ideal time of the year to dust off your sewing machine and get creative!

It’s only going to be worn once or twice so don’t go overboard with glues and permanent fixes. Use a needle a thread where you can then – after it’s all over – either keep it as materials for next year’s creation or reclaim the buttons and trims for your craft box, and the rags for household cleaning.

Never put fabrics in your bin – donate to ReMode, charity shops or use your local textile recycle bin.

Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre Directors break ground at the new facility site

CPI has today announced the start of construction at the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre in Renfrewshire, Scotland.

Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre Directors break ground at the new facility site

The new technology and innovation centre is set to become a unique and world-leading facility offering transformative solutions in small molecule and pharmaceutical manufacturing. It will accelerate the development and industrialisation of next-generation medicines manufacturing innovations and maximise technology opportunities within the medicines supply chain. Industry, academia, healthcare providers and regulators will work collaboratively within a GMP environment to address industry challenges and de-risk new technologies, providing a clear pathway for their widespread adoption within the pharmaceutical industry.

 

The Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre is a collaboration between CPI, the University of Strathclyde and founding industry partners, GSK and AstraZeneca with funding provided by Scottish Enterprise and UK Research and Innovation. The Centre has recently agreed partnerships with four leading technology companies to further strengthen the range of expertise in the collaboration.

The facility will translate, at industrial and commercial scale, novel techniques for producing patient-centric medicines, including real-time release of drugs, and integrated process analytics to drive the transformation of medicines manufacturing. These technologies will enable a reduction in quantities of the materials currently required in process development; accelerate timelines to achieve just-in-time, right-first-time and real-time-release manufacturing principles; and ultimately accelerate access of affordable medicines for healthcare providers and patients.

 

Companies of all sizes will be able to use the facility to evaluate, test and prototype processes using an array of advanced Industry 4.0 manufacturing technologies, including continuous, digital and autonomous manufacturing. The utilisation of next-generation technology will enable more efficient drug production to protect future generations by bringing new medicines to market safely and quickly.

 

The facility is due for completion late 2021 and will be operational in early 2022. It is expected to eventually house over 80 staff in both technical and non-technical roles.

 

Nadhim Zahawi, Life Sciences Minister, said: “Backed with £13 million of government funding, this centre is the first of its kind and will significantly boost our domestic medicines manufacturing capability to ensure we are prepared for any future health crises. Complementing our state of the art Vaccines Manufacturing Innovation Centre in Oxfordshire, it will ensure we are at the forefront of transformational technologies, attracting tens-of-millions-of-pounds of investment to the UK and creating new highly-skilled jobs in the Renfrewshire area – a great example of how we are working to build back better.”

 

Ivan McKee, Scottish Government Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation, said: “The Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre is a tremendous boost to the Scottish economy, and a great endorsement of Scotland’s strengths in life and chemical sciences. The Scottish Government is committed to attracting inward investment from global partners, whose investment in this project will help to create highly skilled jobs in Scotland in a vitally important sector. As an integral part of the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland, the centre will put Scotland at the cutting edge of advanced pharmaceutical manufacturing, developing innovative technologies which will help to strengthen the pharmaceutical supply chain.”

 

Professor Sir Jim McDonald, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Strathclyde, said: “As strategic partners in the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre, the University of Strathclyde is utilising its research, innovation and internationally-leading experience and expertise in advanced medicines manufacturing to meet the biggest health challenges facing our world. We are delighted to be working in collaboration with our partners across industry, academia, government and healthcare to accelerate and transform the medicines manufacturing process. We are excited to see construction begin on what will be a distinctive and important asset to the Glasgow City region and to Scotland.”

 

Jon-Paul Sherlock, Technology Strategy Lead at AstraZeneca, said: “Manufacturing innovation is critical to future pharmaceutical supply chains. Molecules are more complex, development times shorter and the expectations of patients and healthcare systems higher than ever before. However, for a highly regulated industry, innovation is risky and potentially expensive. This facility will enable close collaboration between industry, government and academia and will be a game-changer; resulting in faster industrialisation and implementation of exciting new opportunities.”

 

Andy Jones, Medicines Manufacturing Challenge Director at UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), one of the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre’s main funders, said: “The Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre will play a key role in the infrastructure the UK is building, investing in medicines manufacturing innovation to tackle today’s health challenges and those of the future. It will also be ideally placed to help turn great ideas into great business, ensuring that UK innovators can access a global, life sciences market worth some £98 billion.”

 

Derek Shaw, Commercial Director at Scottish Enterprise, one of the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre’s main funders, said: “This is an important and exciting step in the development of the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre, and the opportunities it will unlock for businesses through collaboration between academia, industry and government. Industry leadership and co-investment are central to shaping the facility and Scottish Enterprise is proud to have committed £15 million of funding alongside our partners.”

 

Dave Tudor, Managing Director of the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre, Quality and Biologics, at CPI, said: “We are thrilled to be starting the construction of this new, collaborative centre. The consortium is already working together on several ambitious projects with the aim to de-risk disruptive technology that can lower the cost of drug development. Live projects include a digitally-twinned continuous direct compression platform to increase the productivity of drug product manufacture, and an automated platform to enable just-in-time supply for clinical trials which will drastically cut lead times. We look forward to bringing that technology and cross-sector expertise to these new facilities.”

 

Frank Millar, CEO at CPI, said: “Ageing populations, the increasing cost of drug development, and resource constraints impeding the adoption of emergent technologies are just some of the challenges facing the pharmaceutical industry today. The increasing financial burden on the healthcare system as a whole has led to a pressing need for more cost-effective medication. By connecting the dots between academia, government, industry and healthcare providers within this state-of-the-art centre, we can address these issues and transform the pharmaceutical supply chain for the future.”

Renfrew Flood Defences

Residents and businesses in Renfrewshire are being given advice on how to stay safe should winter weather cause flooding in their area.

Renfrew Flood Defences

With colder, wetter weather approaching, homeowners and businesses are being asked to identify whether their area is at risk of flooding and, if so, ensure they are ready in advance.

As part of its #RenReady campaign, the council are encouraging residents to take proactive steps to avoid flooding damage, including:

  • Creating a list of useful numbers such as the council, emergency services, electricity and insurance companies;
  • Checking gutters and drains around their property are clear and reporting public drains in need of attention;
  • Being ready to switch off gas and electricity supplies should this be required;
  • Ensuring everyone living or working in the property knows what to do should flooding occur by creating a Flood Plan;
  • Following up to date weather reports so that they’re not caught out by adverse weather.

In the event of severe flooding, residents can check for localised updates via the council website and social media, or via the Floodline Service on 0345 988 1188.

Renfrew Flood Defences

Councillor Cathy McEwan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board, said: “Unfortunately as winter approaches, this brings darker nights and harsher weather.

“So, it’s important that we are all prepared to deal with the effects of heavy rainfall and know what to do if it arrives, especially if you live in an area prone to flooding.

“As a council, we’re working hard to ensure that areas we know are at risk are prepared in advance by clearing drains and trying to divert the natural flow of water – but we can also provide you with support in an emergency.

“You should create a flood plan so you’re not caught out and do all you can to protect your property from the risk of flooding.

“As always, we’re available to support you and offer advice so please get in touch if you need assistance.”

Renfrewshire Council is working with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) to prepare local people in Renfrewshire, and the SEPA website has information on how best to stay safe, including a postcode map outlining the flood risk in each area.

Vincent Fitzsimons, SEPA’s Head of Hydrology and Flooding Services, said: “It’s really important that people are prepared ahead of the winter, when we often see more flooding.

“While you can sign up for Floodline at any time it’s important you have time to understand what those messages mean – and what you can do in advance of rainfall. We want to encourage people to make the time to visit sepa.org.uk/signup and get registered. If you’re not online you can also call Floodline on 0345 988 1188.

“There’s a wealth of information available at floodlinescotland.org.uk to help you prepare, including what to do before, during or after a flood. There’s advice for your homes, your business and you travel, with links to key sources of information. Don’t wait until flooding’s at your door, sign up to Floodline now and make sure you’re ready before you need to be.”

Across Scotland over 32,000 people have already signed up for Floodline, while Flood Alerts and Warnings are also posted live to SEPA’s website at sepa.org.uk/floodupdates

Linda and Gordon Robertson

A PAISLEY couple who say they both owe their lives to cancer research have celebrated their survival by holding a special Stand Up To Cancer brunch in their dream camper van.

Linda and Gordon Robertson

Linda and Gordon Robertson are urging Scots to turn up the heat on the disease this October by preparing a fundraising feast.

Bowel cancer survivor Gordon Robertson and his wife Linda, who are about to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary, first met just after Gordon lost his first wife Val to breast cancer.

Linda, aged 48, who is herself recovering from breast cancer, says she owes her life to treatments that weren’t available when Val was diagnosed.

The couple are now calling on people across Scotland to join them and cook up some cash with a special Sunday Brunch for Stand Up To Cancer.

They’re urging foodies and fundraisers alike to create a restaurant-style experience at home by hosting a brunch bonanza for their household – with family or housemates donating the bill to life-saving research.

Stand Up To Cancer is a joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4 which aims to get new cancer tests and treatments to people who need them the most.

The couple are stepping up to the stove because they know first-hand how important new discoveries and breakthroughs are to help more people like them survive.

It was a huge shock to Gordon and Linda when cancer hit them for the third time.

“When Linda went to the GP because of a lump in her breast, I wasn’t worried because it never crossed my mind that cancer could hit us for a third time,” recalled Gordon, aged 56.

“So when the tests showed it was cancer, I felt absolute disbelief. It was a massive shock.”

Gordon lost his first wife Val to breast cancer in 1997 when she was aged just 33.

Linda and Gordon Robertson

The couple, who met at work at Glasgow Libraries, had been engaged for some time and they got married at home when Val’s health deteriorated – sadly just 19 days before she died.

 

Gordon said: “Val was a library assistant and I was working with Glasgow Libraries doing odd jobs when we met. We hit it off straight away and we were together for four years.

“When Val discovered a lump in her breast, she was only 31. We went for tests immediately and we thought we’d caught it early enough. But after treatment the cancer came back and had spread to her liver. It was devastating.”

Fifteen months later, a friend persuaded Gordon to go on a holiday to Tenerife. Gordon had been struggling with grief and his friend thought a change of scene might help.

It was there Gordon met Linda, in a nightclub where neither of them were enjoying the music.

Linda remarked to Gordon that it would have been better if the DJ had been playing The Smiths. Gordon is a massive Morrissey fan and the pair bonded.

They left the nightclub and walked the streets talking about their lives and singing Smiths songs. Gordon opened his heart to Linda about his heartbreak over Val.

Linda decided that Gordon was not ready for another relationship and so the pair parted ways.

However, on return to Glasgow, Gordon got back in touch with Linda and persuaded her to go on a date with him. Six weeks later, they moved in together and they were married in October 2000.

Linda recalls: “Gordon was going through such a tough time, I didn’t think he was ready for another relationship. But when we got to Glasgow he got back in touch and took me for dinner and after that we pretty much became inseparable. It wasn’t long before I met Val’s sisters and they gave us their blessing which meant so much and really helped Gordon to find happiness again.”

On 19 October 2000, Gordon and Linda were married at the Park Circus building in Glasgow in front of 60 friends and relatives.

Ten years later, the couple had to face a second significant hurdle, when Gordon was diagnosed with bowel cancer.

Gordon said: “Being told you have cancer immediately changes your life. And after what had happened to Val, of course I worried about the consequences. But I also really believed I was going to beat it. And having Linda by my side was a huge support.”

Gordon’s bowel cancer was caught early and this year he’s celebrating ten years of being free of the disease.

But another bombshell hit the couple in August 2015 when Linda discovered a breast lump.

Linda recalled: “I really didn’t think it was anything to worry about and so I didn’t even take Gordon with me when I went for the test results. So when the diagnosis came, it was a real bolt from the blue. I couldn’t believe it. How could cancer hit us for a third time – first Val, then Gordon and now me.”

Linda’s treatment included surgery, radiotherapy and Herceptin injections. She continues to take Tamoxifen, a hormone therapy which lowers the risk of early breast cancer recurring after surgery.

To make sure her body was lined up in exactly the same position to receive all her radiotherapy treatments, radiographers made pin-point sized tattoo marks on her skin.

In a bid to turn these lasting marks into something positive, and to aid her mental recovery, Linda turned the marks into a bumble bee tattoo, alongside the words Bee Positive. Gordon has a matching tattoo on his arm.

Linda said: “While Gordon is such a positive person, I can sometimes be ‘glass half empty’. I sometimes dwell on the worst-case scenario and worry that the cancer will return. The tattoo is to remind me that I’m still here, Gordon is by my side, and we have lots to look forward to in life.”

Since their marriage, Gordon and Linda have indulged in a love of travel, particularly to Spain. It was their dream to buy a camper van when they retired but, with the pandemic halting travel plans, and in celebration of their 20th wedding anniversary, the pair decided to make the investment this summer.

Since buying the van, they’ve travelled all over Scotland and enjoyed a summer holiday to Wales. They are also planning a more local camping trip in the van to celebrate their wedding anniversary.

Linda said: “We’re really doing what we can to live our best life. You’d think with Gordon going through one tragedy, that would be his fair share. But that’s not how it works. We’ve been through so much together but we’re stronger and closer for it.

“When we decided to buy the campervan – which has been our dream for so long – we just thought ‘life’s too short to wait’. We love being out and about in it and preparing for each of our camping trips really makes my heart sing.”

She added: “I know that I have survived cancer because I received treatments that perhaps weren’t around when Val was diagnosed with cancer.

“Cancer affects every family and so it’s so important that scientists have the funding to find the causes and new cures. Supporting cancer research is something positive we can all do to make sure more people survive.

“With charities having been hit so hard by the coronavirus outbreak, it feels more important than ever for everyone to do what they can.”

In Scotland, around 32,400 people are diagnosed with cancer every year*. That’s why Gordon and Linda are calling on people across the country to sign up for a free fundraising kit now with everything they need to turn their home into an exclusive brunch spot.

Supported by Channel 4 show Sunday Brunch, an array of celebrity chefs – including co-host Simon Rimmer – have donated recipes. From Davina McCall’s kedgeree, to Jamie Oliver’s super spinach pancakes and Asma Khan’s courgette sabzi – there’s something to suit everyone’s taste buds. Or participants can simply choose to conjure up their own culinary creations. 

Linda Summerhayes, Cancer Research UK spokesperson in Scotland, said: “We’re grateful to the Robertsons for helping us to continue our mission. Cancer doesn’t stop in the face of a pandemic. It can affect anyone’s life, at any time so we only have one option: accelerate life-saving research.

“Thanks to the extra time spent at home lately, many of us now know our way around the kitchen much better than before. So why not put these new-found culinary skills to use while inspiring guests to dish up the dosh for a great cause.

“Cooking a special Sunday brunch for your household is a safe and simple way to show support during these challenging times. By taking part you’ll be rewarded with more than just empty plates. The donations your family or housemates make in support of your efforts really could save lives.”

For added inspiration, during October four special episodes of Sunday Brunch will be shown on Channel 4 showcasing some of the delicious Stand Up To Cancer recipes.

Edward Reid

BRITAIN’S Got Talent singing star Edward Reid might have found himself a new theme song with Climb Every Mountain – because yesterday he was at intu Braehead doing just that!

Edward Reid

Edward joined shopping centre staff in a sponsored stair-climbing challenge to raise vital funds for leading mental health charity SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) as they took part in their own version of SAMH’s Virtual Stomp.

The team at intu Braehead took part in their self-organised fundraising challenge on the eve of World Mental Health Day (Saturday, October 10) and the staff raised more than £200 for the charity by climbing 16,380 stairs.

Edward Reid

The shopping centre is also running a series of short videos of Edward giving mental health and well-being advice and tips on their social media channels in the run-up to World Mental Health Day and will continue to do so throughout the rest of the month.

Edward said: “There definitely ain’t no mountain high enough for the big-hearted folks at intu Braehead.

“They put in a fantastic effort to climb all these steps and raise money for a very worthy cause.

And he quipped: “By the time I got to the top of the flight of steps for the umpteenth time, I thought I was on the stairway to heaven!”

Edward Reid

Lydia Brown, intu Braehead’s community development manager said: “It’s important everyone looks after their mental health in the same way we look after our physical health.

“SAMH do a fantastic job in supporting people with mental health problems and raising awareness across Scotland. Our team wanted to do everything we could to help support the charity with their fundraising and raise awareness about mental health and wellbeing.”

Harriet Key, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser said “We’re living in difficult times so it’s never been more important to support Scotland’s mental health. These funds will help SAMH raise awareness, promote good mental health and support those who need it most.”

SAMH has put together a dedicated coronavirus mental health information hub for anyone looking for help or support during the pandemic, which can be found on its website – https://www.samh.org.uk/.

THINGS have gone mall spooky for Halloween at the intu Braehead shopping centre.

Bhead

Thanks to some amazing hi-tech wizardry, shoppers can get astonishing photos of themselves standing next to a ghoulish ghost, scary skeleton and even a vampire surrounded by bats.

The shopping centre is launching its free augmented reality Halloween experience app on Friday, October 9.

All shoppers need to do for some Halloween fun is to download the intu Braehead app for their phone or tablet, scan special markers on the floor throughout the centre and the spooky figures appear as if by magic on their screens.

Then they can take photos of friends and family standing next to the virtual Halloween figures.”

Coffin

The Halloween images that appear with supernatural sorcery include a trap door with spiders, a skeleton, witch, ghost, vampire surrounded by bats and a cauldron.

The trigger markers can even be downloaded from the intu Braehead website, printed out and then used at home to make the figures appear when using the app, which will be active until November 4.

David Lyon, intu Braehead’s marketing manager said: “Talk about spooky! How weird is it going to be when you can get your photo taken beside a ghost, skeleton, witch or vampire and his bat friends in the middle of a shopping centre?

“Halloween is the traditional time of year when everyone has a bit of fun with spooky goings-on, but we’re bringing it right into the 21st century with some amazing augmented reality technology.

“It’ll be great fun for all the family and something they’ll be talking about for a long time.”

Go to www.intu.co.uk/braehead for more details, to download the app and the trigger marker graphics.
