FINA 2009 World Championships Swimming - Day 3 Morning Session

David Davies took five seconds off the 800m Freestyle British record as the British Gas swimming team secured one final and three semi-final places after strong performances through the heat session. Davies took to heat four alongside Italian Federico Colbertaldo and Robert Hurley (Australia) and was looking to post a quick time to reach the final next day.

The Olympic silver medallist dominated the first half of his race but as the race entered the final 400m Colbertaldo began to close in on the British Gas swimmer. Davies showed his strength in the final 100m as he touched in a time of 7:45.89 to knock five seconds off his own British record time and qualified in fourth place for the final.

Renewed guide to volunteering and benefits published

Following a government commitment in response to the Commission on the Future of Volunteering's report ‘Manifesto for Change’ earlier in 2008, Jobcentre Plus, part of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), has published its renewed guidance on volunteering whilst on benefits.

It responds to concerns voiced by the third sector that individuals in receipt of benefits are not always aware of their right to volunteer and can be put off if they think volunteering will affect their benefits. The guidance offers clear advice on how volunteering relates to benefits such as Jobseeker's Allowance and Working Tax credits.
