While registration is already closed, the three-day competition will feature 18 teams vying for bragging rights, street football style.Director of Sport, Christopher Jones, while praising the Freedom Family for implementing such an initiative, highlighted the benefits the competition has for the target areas.“It provides an opportunity for young people who otherwise would not have had an opportunity to be a part of such a tournament. We recognise some of the communities that would be participating in the event from Albouystown, Tiger Bay, Leopold Street; these youngsters are in communities which would be referred to as at-risk communities and activities like this remind them that persons are still looking out for their interest,” the Director of Sport stated.He then went on to highlight the variety that the event presents, noting that it is more than just a few football matches. “The ambiance will be set for two sorts of deliverables: 1) It is a football tournament in which you have an opportunity to rep for your community, and 2) the atmosphere where you can sit with your family and friends on the beach,” Jones explained.The five-a-side football will be sponsored by ANSA McAL under its Stag, iCool and iCool Water brands. ANSA McAL Brand Manager Errol Nelson, after congratulating the Freedom Family on their venture, noted that the company was excited to be a part of this first-time venture.“As you may know, over the years, ANSA McAL has been known for distributing brands and products of the highest quality and as such, we are expecting a very high level of competition to be displayed by all the teams and also disciplined supporters,” Nelson stated.The competition will see the preliminary round being played on the first night Friday, October 19 (tomorrow) and will heat up on Saturday, October 20 with the knockout rounds. The semi-finals and final will be played on Sunday, October 21. Tickets for the individual days currently cost $1000 while the three-day pass is valued at $2500.With bragging rights will come a grand prize as explained by the “Freedom Boss” himself, Marlon Jacobs. “Prizes for teams will amount to $500,000 cash.

first_imgBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: Hello you beautiful people. Another week of fabulous weather. We’re being spoilt and long may it last!This week I’ll be sharing some of my favourite baby skin care products with you all. As you know, baby’s skin is very delicate. Fragrances, detergents and some baby products can often cause skin irritation.If your little one has sensitive skin, then you will know that it is hard and often expensive finding the right products to suit their skin.Ava has inherited her sensitive skin from me unfortunately. She suffered from mild eczema in the earlier months and continues to get the occasional flare up.Whether you’re looking for some gentle bath time products or something to relieve symptoms of dry skin or eczema, hopefully some of the following ranges might suit you. Childs Farm: Childs farm are by far my favourite products. They are made using natural ‘free-from’ ingredients and essential oils to produce mild and gentle care for the skin and hair of new-borns, babies and children. All products are dermatologically tested and paediatrician approved. The bubble bath makes bath time a little bit more fun as I found with other brands of bubble bath for eczema prone skin the bubbles disappeared really quickly.I also love the moisturiser. It is light weight, dries quickly and leaves Ava’s skin feeling soft and fresh. All of these products smell amazing and you can buy travel sized bottles which come in handy when going on holiday.  Since using these products Ava has not had any skin irritations.You can browse and purchase their products here.Aveeno Baby:These products were recommended to me by my health visitor. The Aveeno Baby brand offer skin and hair care products. The products are specially formulated with active naturals to help nourish, soothe and protect your little ones sensitive skin. Their creams are fragrance-free, easy to apply, don’t leave any residue but leaves your baby’s skin super soft and lovely. Products are suitable for babies from 3 months and are so gentle they can be used on anyone with sensitive or dry skin. This brand is also paediatrician recommended. Find the Aveeno baby Range here:Cussons Mum & Me: I became familiar with Cussons products when I received a gift set before Ava was born. Cussons Baby Range is great as part of a bed time routine. The lavender scent is not at all overpowering and the products genuinely seem to have a calming effect.Ava loves a baby massage after her baths so the massage oil has become my favourite product and one which I buy regularly. It contains a blend of Jasmine and Aloe Vera which helps soothe the skin.  It is also hypo allergic and paediatrician approved. Browse their products here.Moo Goo:Finally, I was recommended this brand by a friend. I have only tried the nappy balm so far and it has worked wonders. It is the perfect thickness; thick enough to leave a barrier but without being sticky or rubbing away when in contact with the nappy or causing any further irritation. It includes anti-yeast ingredients which is perfect because along with urea, yeast is one of the main causes of nappy rash.I have tried some of the MooGoo products myself from the adult range and absolutely loved them.Find the Moogoo range here.Like most things in the world of parenting, it is all down to personal preference.However, I hope this article has been of some use to you.Thanks for reading,Áine xBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: BABY SKIN CARE RANGES FOR SENSITIVE AND ECZEMA PRONE SKIN was last modified: June 10th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Baby ColumnBaby Steps with AineFeaturesMoo Goonewslast_img read more
