(Picture: Adam Hughes / SWNS) Primark is known for two things: offering bargain buys and being incredibly busy. So much so, there’s a very likely possibility that you’ll disappear in a sea of people, never to be seen again, just because you wanted to pick up a pair of cheap jeans and interior bits. Especially in London, as tourists descend upon the Irish retailer’s flagship stores on Oxford Street and around the corner from Tottenham Court Road tube station. Fans have eagerly been awaiting an online Primark store, and earlier this week it looked as if their dreams might come true. On Tuesday, several publications announced that the brand was on the verge of trialling an online click and collect option, following the release of a report from a financial management company called Davy. But sadly, that’s not the case. We contacted Primark today and the retailer has confirmed that there are currently no plans for an online store of any kind. ‘Online is important for Primark,’ said a spokesperson for the brand. ‘We have a strong digital and a rapidly growing social media presence, with currently 14 million followers. Our customers enjoy looking online at the latest offers, and coming into stores to buy. The combination of instore design, shopping experience and amazing prices is what makes Primark so attractive. ‘From time to time we will look at click and collect as one possible option to extend our customer service. ‘However, there are no plans in the near future to trial click and collect.’ [metro-tag-post-strip] Well, even if you can’t shop online, you can at least browse items and find out which store they’re available in, before you bravely head onto the fashion battlefield. Or go to Birmingham to visit the world’s biggest Primark store. Either way, bring some water and a snack – just in case.

Cheryl’s family wanted to give her a party to remember (Picture: Lewis Glover /SWNS.COM) A terminally-ill woman was stunned when her family threw her a surprise 30th birthday party four months early, because she only had a few weeks left to live. Cheryl Calver’s friends and family were determined to make her 30th birthday a huge celebration, after she was told that she might not make the actual date at the end of July. So Cheryl’s loved ones decided to celebrate earlier, just in case the unfortunate prognosis proved to be correct. The 29-year-old mother of three thought she was going for a family meal when beauticians turned up to give her a surprise makeover at home. Then she was whisked away in a white stretch limo. The surprise birthday bash took place at the end of March at the Stumble Inn pub in Sittingbourne, just four days before Cherly died at her home in Murston, Kent. Childhood friend Lianne Dmytruk, who has known Cheryl for 20 years, said: ‘It was one of her things she had on her bucket list that she wanted to have a 30th birthday party. ‘It was something we were looking to do in the summer because she was having chemotherapy and she hoped it would extend her life so we could have a summer of memories. ‘But sadly she got a chest infection and she was too poorly to continue with therapy. Cheryl had no idea what her friends and family were planning (Picture: Lewis Glover /SWNS.COM) ‘We were told in March it was going to be a matter of weeks – none of us wanted to believe it was true but we saw how poorly she was.’ Cheryl was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2015 and received surgery and treatment before going into remission the following year. But in 2017 her cancer returned and by March this year, she was told by doctors the disease had spread to her vital organs and she died at home on April 3. On New Year’s Day, she created a wish list with her partner Lee Macey, her three children and four stepchildren, which included going to more concerts, milkshake nights, taking a ninja course and going to Wimbledon tennis. On the day of the party, Cheryl wore a new dress and toured in the limo with her children Daisy and Elliott, her partner Lee and their two-year-old daughter Penelope. They were met by Cheryl’s mum at the Stumble Inn who took her round the back to the pub garden where she was surprised by friends and family with streamers and party poppers. Lianne said: ‘As soon as she came in, she was so overwhelmed – she just held onto Lee and said “thank you” and cuddled into him. Cheryl passed away just four days after the party (Picture: Lianne Dmytruk /SWNS.COM) ‘A queue formed the whole length of the garden and everybody went one by one to say hello and hugged and kissed her. ‘It was like a big train of people wanting to see the Queen, it really was emotional. ‘We had a photographer too who took photos of the whole thing and she had a beautiful pink drop cake with swirly letters on it. ‘A couple of days before, she had not really got out of bed and I was worried she was not going to make it. But once she had her hair and make up done, she really perked up. Four days after her early birthday celebrations, Cheryl passed away at home. ‘After the party, she didn’t get out of bed – it was just so fast how quickly she deteriorated,’ said Lianne. Cheryl was told she might not make it to her actual 30th birthday in July (Picture: Lianne Dmytruk /SWNS.COM) ‘Even thought we were told it would be a matter of weeks, we were all clinging onto some hope that they were wrong. ‘But she held on because she knew she was doing something special on the Saturday when we did the party, then it was a matter of four days and she passed away. ‘After the party, the following day was Mother’s Day and the children were all round her bed. ‘They are an amazing family, they have been through so much and it has not been easy for anyone.. Cheryl’s funeral will take place on 29th April, three days after she would have celebrated her five year anniversary with boyfriend Lee.

(Picture: Adidas) Adidas is making history with the launch of its first 100% recyclable trainers. The Futurecraft.Loop is the sports brand’s first shoe that can be completely remade into another high performance running trainer. As part of their commitment to tackle plastic waste, adidas’ new trainers use only one material and no glue – making them really easy to recycle. Which is great news if you want to make your wardrobe more environmentally sustainable. In 2015, adidas introduced its first performance footwear concept with an upper made entirely of yarns and filaments reclaimed and recycled from marine plastic waste and illegal deep-sea gill-nets. This year, the brand will produce 11 million pairs of shoes with Ocean Plastic® by Parley by intercepting plastic waste on beaches, remote islands and in coastal communities. ‘Taking plastic waste out of the system is the first step, but we can’t stop there,’ said Eric Liedtke, executive board member at adidas. (Picture: Adidas) (Picture: Adidas) ‘What happens to your shoes after you’ve worn them out? You throw them away – except there is no away. There are only landfills and incinerators and ultimately an atmosphere choked with excess carbon, or oceans filled with plastic waste. ‘The next step is to end the concept of “waste” entirely. ‘Our dream is that you can keep wearing the same shoes over and over again. ‘Futurecraft.Loop is our first running shoe that is made to be remade. It is a statement of our intent to take responsibility for the entire life of our product; proof that we can build high-performance running shoes that you don’t have to throw away.’ [metro-zone-post-strip] It’s a simple concept. When you’ve got all the wear out of your trainers, you just return them to adidas where they are washed, ground to pellets and melted into material for components for a new pair of shoes, with zero waste and nothing thrown away. The shoe is rolling out as part of a global beta program with 200 leading creators from across the world’s major cities – the plan is to roll out the release more widely for spring 2021. With other clothing brands and trainer producers creating items that focus on sustainability, you will soon be able to lower your carbon footprint simply by making smart choices about what’s in your wardrobe.
