The Hearing Fund UK has been launched to raise money for children living with hearing loss, and their families, all around the UK.Merrill Osmond, lead singer of the Osmond’s, along with his son, Justin, hope that UK fans will support the charity.Merrill Osmond said that he wanted to see realised the dream of his late mother, Olive Osmond, of helping deaf children around the world come to fruition in the UK.“People don’t always realise that it was because of my two deaf brothers, Virl and Tom, that the whole Osmond thing started” he explained. “My mother and father formed the group so they could afford to buy hearing aids for them. My own son, Justin, is 90 per cent deaf as well, and that’s why this new Fund is so important to me and my family.”Justin Osmond has already set up the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund in the USA in honour of his grandmother.The Hearing Fund UK, established under the Charities Aid Foundation, will choose a registered charity to be the beneficiary of its funds. The first charity partner is The Elizabeth Foundation, a national charity supporting infants and preschool children with hearing loss, and their families.Merrill is returning to the UK in September to take part in a special fundraising Gala in Leeds, along with the Fund’s two new celebrity friends – Loose Women‘s Jane McDonald and Strictly Come Dancing‘s Craig Revel Horwood.www.hearingfund.org.uk Tagged with: Celebrity Funding AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1last_img read more

14-year-old girl abducted in North Carolina is found safe in Arkansas: Police

first_imgvmargineanu/iStockBy EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(LONOKE, Ark.) — A man suspected of abducting a 14-year-old girl from her North Carolina home led police on a car chase and has since died from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said.The 14 year-old was found safe in Arkansas, about 800 miles away from home, and has been taken back to her family, said police in Lonoke, Arkansas.The case began on Feb. 11, when the suspect, 38-year-old William Ice, allegedly took the teen from her Denton home in Davidson County after communicating with her through multiple online platforms, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office said.Authorities found that Ice, from Mercer County, Pennsylvania, was also allegedly talking to several other underage girls in Alamance County, North Carolina, the sheriff’s office said. Ice “was also wanted by Pennsylvania law enforcement authorities in connection with other child predator cases,” Arkansas State Police said. At about 8 p.m. Saturday, two officers in Lonoke, Arkansas, recognized an SUV at a McDonald’s in connection to the abduction case, the Arkansas State Police said Sunday.The officers saw two people inside the SUV and ordered the driver — later identified as Ice — to get out, police said.As Ice exited the car, he “aimed a gun at one of the officers and began shooting, critically wounding the officer,” state police said.The second Lonoke officer, who wasn’t hit, returned fire, while Ice got back in the car and fled, police said.An Arkansas state trooper chased Ice through Lonoke until Ice’s car became disabled in a snowbank, police said.The 14-year-old girl then fled the car to safety, police said.Inside the SUV, the trooper found that Ice was injured from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. Ice later died at a Little Rock hospital, police said.The wounded Lonoke police officer, Cody Carpenter, was shot several times but is “expected to make a full recovery,” said Lonoke police.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
