"I really hope we are as successful this year as we have been previously" said Kara Robertson of Costa Christmas Collections. “It's a wonderful thing for the children to see that they are in the community’s thoughts during the festive season."

Children range from 1-18 years however Kara explained that in general people tend to buy toys for the younger children with very few gifts bought for ages 15 -18. With more teenagers than ever this year she is hoping people will also think of this age group when shopping. Ideas suggested include underwear, socks, toiletries, books and DVD’s.

“At The Boardwalk we started a project last year to help the 18 and 19 year olds in the orphanages find employment, something they have previously struggled with. We currently have two boys employed in our kitchen,” explained Kara. "We are training them up as chefs to help give them the start in life they deserve! They are fantastic, hard working guys and we couldn't be happier to have them." Kara has offered anyone considering employing one of the older children in the orphanages guidance with the process.

With over 300 children to help, organisers Kara and her husband, Gary Robertson, Charley Caradas, Sera Jane and Karen Carter Southall are appealing to any venues who could offer themselves as a drop off point to get in touch.

Oh this is such a sad news for a Monday.


Actress and transgender activist Alexis Arquette, of the famous Arquette acting family, has died at age 47. Her brother, Richmond, posted the news on Facebook and the Arquette family shared a joint statement from siblings Richmond, Rosanna, Patricia and David.


"Alexis was a brilliant artist and painter, a singer, an entertainer and an actor," the statement read. "Her career was cut short, not by her passing, but by her decision to live her truth and her life as a transgender woman. Despite the fact that there are few parts for trans actors, she refused to play roles that were demeaning or stereotypical. She was a vanguard in the fight for understanding and acceptance for all trans people."


"Our brother Robert, who became our brother Alexis, who became our sister Alexis, who became our brother Alexis, passed this morning September 11, at 12:32 am," surrounded by loved ones, Richmond Arquette shared in a Facebook post.  "We were playing music for him, and he passed during David Bowie's Starman. As per his wishes, we cheered at the moment that he transitioned to another dimension."


Alexis' sister Patricia seemed to reference that sad moment in a tweet Sunday. "Breaking through the veil singing StarMan," she posted.


RIP Alexis.

Naked Orlando Bloom photos have emerged after the actor frolicked nude and unconcerned on a beach in Sardinia, Italy on Wednesday. Accompanied by a bikini-wearing Katy Perry, Bloom was pictured totally in the buff as the couple paddle-boarded in the ocean.


In photos obtained by the New York Daily News, Bloom can be seen totally naked enjoying a day at the beach with Perry and more fully clothed friends. Bloom had a bathing suit with him, but opted not to wear it on the beach or in the water. And while she didn’t go bare, Perry seemingly didn’t care that Bloom was sitting nude behind her paddle boarding or hanging out on the sandy beach. The shots posted by the paper feature a black box covering Bloom’s penis and rearend.


Bloom is yet to comment about the images but we 're sure his PR people are happy he's getting more attention now than he did when he was promoting The Lord of The Rings.
