Leeds City Mission community development worker Andy Dalton explained that the City Mission are throwing open their doors for the afternoon to the general public at their Compassion Centre in Mistress Lane.  

Refreshments will be served on the adjoining grassed area where people can mingle.  People can chat and enjoy the sunshine around tables on the grass located under the shade of trees as well as browse inside the centre.

Mr Dalton concluded: “This week is proving to be exceptionally hot. This is a social event where people can linger, chat, relax, enjoy an ice cream and pick up a bargain. Everyone is welcome.”
