It’s on the cards that you will be treated to a free ice cream in Armley this weekend!
Leeds City Mission (LCM) is organising an open afternoon on Saturday (1 October) by throwing open the doors at their new premises in Mistress Lane, at the end of Town Street, to visitors.
They are organising a giant sale of greetings cards, which will be displayed on tables. Visitors can take their choice on a “give as you feel” basis at the event, which runs between 2.30pm and 4pm.
There will be a wide range of greetings cards available – birthdays, anniversaries, bereavement, seasonal and other themes. All monies raised will go towards the various compassion projects undertaken by the City Mission among needy people in West Leeds.
Complimentary ice creams plus teas, coffees and soft drinks will be available throughout the afternoon.
Leeds City Mission community development worker Andy Dalton explained that as the LCM renovation project on their new compassion centre nears completion they were now able to use the main part of the building for community and fund raising events.
He added: “Essentially this a community event where people can pop in, meet other people, enjoy an ice cream and pick up a bargain. Everyone is welcome.”
Leeds City Mission is a multi-church Christian agency which has worked with marginalised people since 1837 and seeks to meet the physical, social and spiritual needs of Leeds residents. Further details available on 0113 345 3118.
