Liverpool Care Pathway - The Meaning Of Liff Café

The meaning of Liff Café...?
If there's no Life Café in your life, then it's still Liff Café.
Bring Liff Café to life. Make your Life Café today!

She could be the girl next door. If you live in Matlock Bath, she may very well be the girl next door…

This is the Matlock Mercury 

She was told what she couldn’t do but determined to do what she could do…
Cathy Booth, 21, of Matlock Bath, was told all the way through life that she could not do sports. This is because she has Cerebral Palsy – meaning she cannot run – as well as epilepsy and a sight defect.

But the Paralympic Games were to change Cathy’s outlook on life forever
They downsized her glass, but she upsized her life!

On the first weekend of June Cathy entered the National Disabled Athletics championships in Dublin with CP Sport and achieved two personal bests – in javelin and discus – and took home two silver medals.

This puts Cathy as the second best athlete, in her sports and classification, in the UK.

“My aim now is to compete in the Rio Paralympic Games in 2016,” said Cathy. “And if I keep up with my training and physio therapy, I will definitely be there.”

In the British Heart Foundation commercial, football hard-man Vinnie Jones demonstrates proper heart massage technique - keeping the correct rhythm by singing the 70s classic.

Administration officer Ms Thorneywork, who works at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, pumped Mr Holly’s heart for a staggering 18 minutes until paramedics arrived - singing the words to the song as she did so.

She was only on the 67 bus, bound from the Erdington area of Birmingham to the city centre, by chance, because one of her children was ill so she was running late.
See your glass half full. Take a Life Café…
