University of Leeds

Spring Programme 2018

 Afternoon Tea with the Lord Mayor, Councillor Jane Dowsonand her consort Mr Alan Bellhops.

Councillor Jane Dowson is the 124th person to hold the Office of Lord Mayor of Leeds and was born, bred and educated in Leeds.

She is a keen supporter of Leeds’ ambition to become a Child Friendly City . 

The Lord Mayor has chosen Candlelighters as her charity for this year. Candlelighters is a children’s cancer charity based in Leeds, supporting families facing children’s cancer across the entire region of Yorkshire. Every penny raised from the Lord Mayor's appeal will go towards renovating the Candlelighters' Cottage. The Cottage will provide four families with accommodation a night, 365 days a year, whilst their children are being treated at Leeds Children's Hospital. Our Christmas Coffee Morning in December  raised  money for this very important cause.
