Local DJ Braves the Shave for Macmillan!

Local Stafford based DJ James Jay has decided to BRAVE THE SHAVE and chop off his full head of hair all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support in just under 2 weeks time.

We all know that cancer can turn someones world upside down and that’s especially true when it comes to appearance. People with cancer go through hair loss and changes to their appearance that can affect everything from the way they look to how they feel.
All the money raised will mean we can support people who are facing a difficult time so that they can start to feel more in control.

Jay said:
Macmillan is a charity very close to my families heart after my father passing away in my teenage years, the work they do to support cancer patients is amazing and I’m very proud to be doing something to help a very worthy cause.

If you would like to make a donation please follow the link below. Jay has also agreed that whoever donates the most will get the opportunity to don the clippers and have a go!

Pokemon Go! What is it and will it end Obesity?

Pokemon Go! What is it and will it end Obesity?

Pokemon Go! The new craze but what is it and will it end Obesity?!

These are some of the claims that have been made.

Pokemon Go is a new game that incorporates gaming and exercise.

It is based on the old Pokemon game but this version incorporates walking out on the streets to hunt Pokemon etc.

One example shows people having to walk certain distances before their eggs hatch.

There are mixed opinions on this new game and I will try and summise the main ones for you here.

Pro’s

This new game incorporates exercise and is encouraging people to move more throughout the day.

It’s affordable

It’s easy to use and all ages are using it

There are many examples of people that usually find social situations difficult that are leaving their houses and mixing with people where they wouldn’t normally.

Government guidelines suggest 30 mins of exercise per day and you would be shocked to find out how many people don’t actually do this

It is an activity that can be done with the whole family

One young person I spoke to gave me an example that he had walked 15km in one day playing the game.

Con’s

As with anything there are some common sense safety aspects to be aware of and some people have already… played while driving, bumped into lamp posts etc. As with anything people need to be aware of safety of themselves and other people when doing most activities

A normal walk can be less social because people are looking and checking their phones all of the time rather than interacting with each other and taking in the scenery

Safety above all needs to be paramount. Stranger danger and all other safety aspects need to take full priority. Parents should ensure they have considered all aspects before downloading the game.

To Summarise…

In my opinion, yes as with anything there are risks and you need to take any adequate steps to keep safe at all times.

No, I don’t think it with CURE all Obesity. No everyone in the whole world is going to be playing this game and a healthy weight is not achieved just through exercise. Diet plays a key part to this also.

People are not realistically going to play the game forever. However, I can absolutely see that this will benefit individuals. I have already seen improvements in my own circle and have seen people go from no exercise to exercising every day.

This will, I believe, set a bench mark with other apps and games using similar principles. There are many fitness apps on the market already that gamefy fitness they are just not as well known.

I have also seen people venturing out and socialising where this has previously been a difficulty for them.

The regular exercise will also help to reduce depression and anxiety and the health benefits are unlimited

Anything that gets people moving etc has, with correct measures taken for safety, got to be a good thing.

What are your thoughts?

Ride2Monaco and Acorns Motor Cycle Club

On the show we interview some of the Ride2Monaco team and Acorns Motor Cycle Club.

Listen again to the interview by clicking on the link at the bottom.

ride2monaco 2016 – 20th – 27th May

Part 3 of an epic trilogy, cycling from Silverstone, the home of the #BritishGP, to the #MonacoGP on the South coast of France!

Raising funds and awareness for worthy causes, Team ride2monaco will cover 850 miles in 8 days. Starting with a lap of Silverstone Circuit, the route will take them across England and France, taking on four famous Alps climbs along the way. This is going to be a mammoth task, cycling between 90 and 117 miles per day.

The Team have received humbling success with their previous two ride2 Cycling Events, raising over £45,000 for their chosen worthy causes. Helping charities close to the Team’s and many of their sponsor’s hearts makes completing this epic challenge achievable. You can follow Team ride2monaco LIVE from 20th May 2016 at www.ride2monaco.com. As well as information about the route, the team and the five worthy causes they support, online donations can be made on the website too…

 

The Acorns mcc was founded 52 yrs ago in 1964, and until recently had its headquarters at Gnosall. Catering for the demand for safe legal off road riding in the area We are affiliated to the AMCA which is the official governing body for amateur off road motorcycling in this country. The Acorns is a very active club and currently holds events for Modern and Classic motocross and trials. These events are held on suitable farm land… where landowners receive payment for the use of the ground…. plus all the events are compliant with safety regulations… and are fully insured through the AMCA.. Both the classic trials and scrambles events are very popular nowadays and attract many enthusiasts who enjoy riding older machines…. Its no doubt that off road riding is a physically demanding sport, some less able enthusiasts prefer to restore and show their machines at the numerous classic bike events around the area enjoying a good social scene and meeting many other likeminded enthusiasts. This year we are holding 2 classic scrambles at our track at Butterton near J15 on M6 …the first one is next Sunday 15th May and the second event is 10th July Later this year on September 18th we are holding a motocross event for the modern bikes. Along with our thriving trials scene, we can cater for the need of most enthusiasts… whatever the age or ability of both rider and machine we can provide a suitable riding event to enjoy. Everyone is welcome to come and have a great day out watching the scrambles… or joining the club… being involved in a good social atmosphere or maybe even help organising or marshalling. If anyone would like to join us, just come along to the Holly Bush pub at Seighford on Wed evenings around 8.pm for a warm welcome. Alternatively in these days of social media take a look on facebook at the Acorns MCC page where we have full details of the club news and our events… or visit our club website.
