'An Evening with Gervase Phinn’

My colleague Gervase Phinn is speaking at an event to raise money for the Lord Mayor's charity appeal on Thursday 8 April 2010 at the Banqueting Suite, Leeds Civic Hall...

Gervase taught in a range of schools for 14 years before becoming an education adviser and school inspector in North Yorkshire. He is now a freelance lecturer, broadcaster and writer, best known for his best-selling autobiographical novels: The Other Side of the Dale; Over Hill and Dale; and Head Over Heels in the Dales. Tickets for the event cost £15 each, and can be bought from the Lord Mayor’s Office, Civic Hall, Leeds LS1 1UR. Please make your cheque payable to ‘The Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal’ and send it with your name and address to the office.

The Lord Mayor, Councillor Judith Elliott, is supporting three charities this year: Riding for the Disabled which operates at Middleton Park Equestrian Centre and helps over 150 disabled and disadvantaged children each week; the Leeds branch of Samaritans which supports people who are desperate, in despair or crisis; and Create, a not-for-profit company which develops training and employment opportunities for homeless, marginalised or vulnerable people.
