But yesterday, we got a treat,” the hospital said in a post on its website. “To celebrate Hospital Week and to honor our employees and caregivers, our volunteers drove their pooches to the hospital for a different kind of therapy: a canine cavalcade.”From their cars at the hospital’s main driveway, PAT program volunteers showed their pets wagging their tails and waving their paws as caregivers standing on the sidelines cheered them on, showing their appreciation.“Although we couldn’t stroke their fluffy ears, just the sight of them was ‘paws-itively’ uplifting during this challenging time,” the hospital’s statement said.Some of the signs posted on the passing cars said “The hard work you do does not go unnoticed,” “We appreciate you,” “Annie says Thank You, Superheroes,” and “Schubert Loves You,” among others. 25 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it last_img read more

Former Wimbledon Champion, Boris Becker, Declared Bankrupt

first_imgThe bankruptcy application was made by Arbuthnot Latham in connection with a debt owed to them for nearly two years.In a statement, Mr Becker said he was “surprised and disappointed” that Arbuthnot Latham had chosen to bring the proceedings against him.“This order relates to one disputed loan which I was due to repay in full in one month’s time,” he said.“It is disappointing that my request for today’s hearing to be postponed until this time was refused. My earnings are well publicised and it is clear that I have the means to repay this debt.“The value of the asset in question far exceeds the debt owed to Arbuthnot Latham.”Mr Becker’s lawyers had asked for another 28-day adjournment after saying that they expected the Majorca property deal to be completed in a month’s time.However, the registrar rejected the plea and said: “It is not often the case that a professional person has a judgment (debt) outstanding against them since October 2015. This is a historic debt.“One has the impression of a man with his head in the sand.”Mr Becker’s advocate, John Briggs, said: “He is not a sophisticated individual when it comes to finances. I am asking for a real last chance for Mr Becker to come good. It has just taken longer than anticipated.”Since retiring from the game, Mr Becker has worked in business and the media and he also coached former world number one Novak Djokovic for three years from 2013.He is part of the BBC’s commentary team for this year’s Wimbledon Championships, which begin on Monday July 3.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Three-time Wimbledon tennis champion, Boris Becker, has been declared bankrupt by a London bankruptcy court.The 49-year-old owed a firm of private bankers a large sum and the court registrar said there was not enough credible evidence that he could pay.Mr Becker’s lawyers asked for a final chance to pay with the funds from remortgaging a property in Majorca.Mr Becker, now a coach and TV pundit for the BBC and other media, was not at the hearing in London.Registrar Miss Christine Derrett said it was “with regret” that she came to the conclusion that he could not pay.“I remember watching him play on Centre Court, which probably shows my age,” she added.last_img read more
