Leeds today: sleepout, bike fundraiser, calendars, and more cheese.

Good morning Leeds: Elly here with some news stories on this sunny Thursday morning!

Over on the Yorkshire Post, they have a heart warming classic story about two young lads and their kitten rescue mission.

On the BBC, they report on MP Jon Trickett who is calling for an inquiry into the death of a miner at Kellingley colliery in North Yorkshire. Our thoughts are with the family of Gerry Gibson.

One of our favourite local sites, Holt Park Today, has just launched their new events calendar – check it out here.

We’ve been talking about it loads, but tonight is finally the night! The Simon on the Streets sleepout takes place this evening so have a look at their website or join in on Twitter with #iamwithsimon – and good luck to everyone taking part.

BARCA, the charity based in Bramley, have had 4 bikes stolen from their lock up, just before a sponsored bike ride. Luckily, they’ve  been leant some bikes, but help them out a little more by getting involved with this Saturday’s fundraiser.

Over on the Culture Vulture, Laura Wellington asks what hidden gems we have here in Leeds – feel free to add your own (and possibly BGL!)

North Leeds News has a great write up of the 2.8 Hours later zombie run the other weekend, complete with gory photos.

Fancy honing your journalism skills? Leeds Trinity University College is running their successful post-graduate journalism course starting in January, and today the 2011 cohort get to show their best work to a panel of judges, X factor style! Find out more here.

In more food related news, Leeds Grub has a review of Deli Central in Wakefield, while the Yorkshire Evening Post reports that 4 out of 10 Yorkshire people have Cheddar as their favourite cheese!

Have a lovely day and don’t forget to get in touch with your news by tweet, email, or interpretive dance.

    Please note (2nd story) that Gerry Gibson is the name of the miner killed in the incident at Kellingley, not the name of the MP calling for the inquiry.
