"Dear Chris, Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of attending the 3rd "One Leeds" event at West Yorkshire Playhouse. As you are aware this event is sponsored by our PFI partners, Mill Asset Management , and is a celebration of performing arts presented by the pupils of Carr Manor High School, John Smeaton Community College, Ralph Thoresby High School, South Leeds High School, Primrose High School, Shakespeare Primary School and City Of Leeds School. The performances were truly sensational, a diverse cultural mix wholly representative of Leeds. There were some real stars of the future in particular the pupil from City of Leeds School who sang "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", and received a standing ovation for her truly outstanding performance. All the performers were a credit to themselves, their schools and proof of our ongoing success in Leeds. Kindest Regards, Alex."
It was great to hear about the event last night. I attended the first two 'One Leeds' events and they were also brilliant. It is wonderful to have PFI partners like Mill Asset Management who believe in these communities and are prepared to invest in events like this.
