Good morning Leeds, it’s Nikki here from Leeds Trinity with the day’s news stories. It’ll be short and sweet today as a lot of the stories in Yorkshire today are rain, rain, rain and floods, floods, floods. My hometown of York could be mistaken for a swimming pool right now.
We’ve probably all seen images of flooding in Yorkshire, so let’s start the day with something beautiful from mother nature. Check out this stunning shot of the sunset last night in Leeds. It’s looks as if flames have broken out in the sky.
Do you live in Morley and fancy a free cup of coffee to keep you warm while the rain pours? Morley Town Council is hosting the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Relief at Morley Town hall today between 10am and midday.
From charity to music. One of the oldest mills in Leeds, Canal Mills, reopens tonight and its walls will be vibrating and booming with music, including a DJ Set from Simian Mobile Disco.
Now to a combination of music and charity. If you fancy dancing the night away to Indie music while doing something worthwhile Bombay Rickshaw club is putting on an Indie music event on October 11 in aid of Macmillan Cancer and FranksWater Projects.
Meanwhile Betta Kultcha is going international!
The Beeb drama Peaky Blinders will be filmed in Leeds even though it based on gang of Birmingham thugs.
Finally today, Jan Winter, Leeds Trinity’s Journalism Lecturer, has set up and launched a pioneering book-gifting scheme in Bradford. Leeds Trinity sponsored the launch and put together goodie packs for children that included red socks, which the children enjoyed playing with!
Don’t forget about the Leeds Feline Friends Auction to raise funds tomorrow at St Margarets Church Hall in Horsforth. We’re back on Monday – have a great weekend!
