Murphy joins aid convoy to Ukraine

Champion jockey Oisin Murphy is preparing to drive a truck full of aid to Ukraine on Sunday.

He will join a group of British horseracing personalities and they hope to bring between eight and 10 horseboxes, supplied by Lambourn Racehorse Transport to Ukraine next week.

Unlike other aid convoys, this one will not be stopping at the Polish border but instead will cross into Ukraine to the town of Przemysl, near Lviv, which has been under repeated Russian attack in recent days.

After helping volunteers unload their donated cargo they will bring back horses that have been left abandoned after their owners were forced to flee the country.

The mission is the brainchild of retired horse trainer Charlie Mann who ran a similar operation during the Bosnian War in the 1990s.

“The timing suits me, so I’ll be driving,” Oisin, who is on a break from racing due to personal reasons, said. “I jumped at the chance. We go out Sunday and while there is no timetable I expect we will be back by Thursday. We have been told there are animals out there that need to be re-homed so we will be returning with horses.”

Mann decided to organise the convoy as one of his former employees was from Ukraine.

“His mother is in Odessa and his sister is in Russia and we had to do something,” Mann said. “I could give a charity £1,000 but you don’t feel like you’re doing anything. Hopefully this is more and it might make a difference to somebody. Good on Oisin. It’s great to have him on board and I hope he’s as good a driver as he is a jockey.”

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
