Including the best way to send food and a line to include in your check-in notes.

.Nottinghamshire's Conservative MPs have spoken out about who they are supporting to succeed Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the leadership race.The first rescue took place near Victoria Embankment in Nottingham "Thankfully I was able to get to her in the nick of time.Christopher Eccleston has revealed that he's"recorded something very special" for the show's upcoming 60th anniversary.

There are many ways to send food.Some people send or drop off meals or elaborate spreads, a thoughtful gesture that doesn’t really land if it doesn’t account for dietary restrictions or preferences.There are now just five candidates remaining in the running for Conservative Party leader.A gluten-free colleague doesn’t have much use for the Tupperware of spaghetti." PC Lewis again used his swimming experience to prevent a woman from going under the water after she entered the Trent on the afternoon of 26 August.A household with a peanut allergy won’t be able to partake in the cookie tray.MPs will engage in voting rounds until just two remain and the next leader, and PM, will be known at the beginning of September.Someone with a particular taste may not be interested in eating the strawberry chia pudding." BBC.

(For all who sent me food, though, rest assured that my hungry, undiscerning household ate everything.READ MORE: Updates as Nottinghamshire crime commissioner Caroline Henry sgiven driving ban for speeding The final TV debate has since been cancelled however due to worries they have been portraying a heavily divided Tory Party at a time when the country has been calling for calm."Without his selfless actions and bravery, both would have undoubtedly drowned.) Our company has largely shifted to sending gift cards to food-delivery services so people can put in their own orders.Startups such as Thnks offer other ideas of items to send colleagues and contacts, from the useful (coffee) to the whimsical (cocktail kit), to let them know you are thinking of them.But who has your MP been voting for? Find out below.Not all offers of help are created equal.There’s a big difference between asking “Do you need anything?” and making it easier to ask for help.She has represented Saffron Walden since 2017 and has only held junior minister positions in the past, but this hasn't stopped her bid for leadership.

One of my colleagues recently sent me an email with these transformative words: “At about 8pm, I’m going to put in an order for you for a nice care package from Target.Is there anything you’d like me to get in particular for you and your family?” As it turned out, we did need a few things (Gatorade and pudding) and I had no qualms telling her because of the way she so specifically framed her intention of helping.She started out in the world of tech and now supports women in landing jobs in the sector.There are always ways to lighten someone’s workload—and there’s no hard end date for doing so.When you run your own business, one of the hardest things about being sick or unavailable is that the latter is actually impossible.One of those supporters is Mr Bradley who describes her as "refreshingly honest".What helped me when I needed to be out of commission: Colleagues who offered to take over entire processes or tasks and simply turned to me for final approval.

Clients, vendors, or business associates who would defer deadlines till much later.No false promises, no 'my tax cuts are bigger than yours'.And finally, clear communications on both sides of what was possible.On Day 3 of Covid, I sent an email to teams saying I was checking email twice a day and would let them know when I planned to resume a more normal cadence.Refreshingly honest.Also, whether someone returns to work on Day 5 or Day 15 after (or during) testing positive for Covid, know that the work and requests and rescheduled meetings will feel overwhelming.The nature of long Covid, and the uncertainty of whether it will strike, also makes those of us who have gotten Covid afraid to say it’s really over.Darren Henry, Broxtowe Broxtowe's Darren Henry is backing foreign secretary and South West Norfolk MP Liz Truss.

Try to acknowledge, alleviate, or not contribute to the avalanche.There’s a corollary to the mourning period and uncertainty here as well.She was born in Leeds to "left-leaning" parents, standing with the Liberal Democrats while studying in Oxford, before, her website states, "breaking the mould" and joining the Conservative Party.Two cards we recently received – literally months after my mother-in-law died – exemplify another meaningful gesture: to show up for people long after the funeral and let them know you know it’s still hard.Work can be a great distraction.Her leadership race tactics have focussed on the economy and opposing former chancellor Rishi Sunak's high taxation policies, having served as chief secretary to the treasury in the past.I have hesitated to say this, because the language around boundaries often emphasizes the importance of unplugging to get through tough times.

But when my mother-in-law was dying, I found work to be a distraction I actually needed.She has a clear vision for the economy and a track record of delivering Conservative policies.I didn’t want to be on Zoom or in deep strategy sessions, but writing this column – through hospice, her death, memorial service – was an important anchor for me.Checking in with my co-founder in brief, reflective moments to get updates on the day or progress of our business felt comfortable, but also oddly kept me idealistic during a really tough time.Brendan Clarke-Smith, Bassetlaw Similarly Mr Clarke-Smith, a former teacher who grew up on a council estate in Clifton, Nottingham, is backing Mrs Truss.The thought of talking to other people or presiding over meetings in those harrowing days, on the other hand, was not.I basically told teams this and said I would be in touch about what felt possible.He said: "We need to see substance, not just style and Liz Truss has a clear plan for growing our economy and taking this country forwards.

I was honest about why I was working on some things and not on others.Completely unplugging felt impossible—for my companies, yes, but also for me."Whatever your preference, one thing was absolutely clear about the Conservatives candidates during tonight’s ITV debate.Does it feel murky? Yes, but mourning is a process and rarely fits into the bereavement periods offered by employers.In some cases, that in-between or somewhere-in-the-middle of totally-on and totally-off can be exactly what someone needs to get to the other side.Well worth remembering that!" Mark Spencer, Sherwood Former diary farmer Mark Spencer has backed former chancellor Rishi Sunak since the beginning.The daily check-in is a kindness—as long as there isn’t expectation of a response.

One business associate of mine sent me a daily subject line “plague” and wrote: “Each day I do my Covid rounds, checking on those that are still suffering from Covid.Mr Sunak, who resigned recently amid turmoil in Government, has been busy promoting his upbringing, emphasising his father was a family GP and his mother a chemist.How are you and your daughter?” Sometimes these check-ins turned into volleys of jokes and gossip; other times I did not respond and just stayed in bed.On that note, these notes are best given with no expectation: of a reply, of a return favor, of a sale, or deal.He lives with his fashion designer wife Akshata Murthy, who is the daughter to India's sixth richest man.My favorite line is something like, “There’s no need to reply to this email” or “No need to send a thank-you card.You’ve got enough going on.Speaking out in support the Sherwood MP said: "Rishi Sunak you have to have the experience at the highest levels of Government to walk into being PM.

” FOMO will be with us for some time.You can help! The collision of a Covid surge with the reopening of workplaces, conferences, and other gatherings is a guaranteed recipe for FOMO, otherwise known as the fear of missing out." He added: "Rishi is the leader who can unite the party, bring the whole country together and win us that fifth general election victory.Such was the case recently as my Covid coincided with a small but meaningful industry gathering that I was truly sad to miss.But other attendees, perhaps equal parts guilted into keeping me updated and legitimately missing my presence too, did a few things to make me feel included: They added me to the WhatsApp group for attendees." Mr Sunak is winning the leadership race so far with 101 points.They shared pictures from the event in real time and texted me funny things I was missing.

They called me with updates on industry news, trends and headwinds.Robert Jenrick, Newark Mr Jenrick, who was removed as secretary of state for housing, communities and local government back in 2021, is supporting Rishi Sunak.There’s no need to wait.Kindness begets kindness, and there’s no wrong time to bestow it on your colleagues.He said: "I saw up close in cabinet the leadership which Rishi Sunak demonstrated during the pandemic.Over the pandemic, “people sought new ways to connect and show appreciation from afar.We saw it across client relationship building, in sales, with internal employee appreciation,” says Kamm." Lee Anderson, Ashfield Mr Anderson has been vocal in his support for Ms Badenoch, similar in that to Mr Bradley.

“It permeated the entire workforce.” A constant show of appreciation helps build the kind of companies people actually want to work for.And her prominent fight in the "culture war" has also solidified Mr Anderson's support, a man who has many times been vocal against what he has been terming as "woke nonsense", demonstrated recently in his boycotting of the England team whose players took the knee in Euro 2020.It also helps employees learn one of the greatest lessons, not just for the workplace but life: Don’t wait until someone is sick or gone to show your gratitude.Read more from Charter.She destroys Labour at the dispatch box.
