Poets support cafe that inspired global food movement

entry picture

Two poets will be aiming to raise money for a Leeds cafe that has inspired a global movement of recycling food that has been discarded as “waste” by supermarkets. Steve Pottinger and Mark Connors will each be reading from their latest works upstairs in the Fox & Newt pub on Burley Road, Leeds on Monday 2 November. Entry will be free, but they will be passing round the hat to raise money for the Real Junk Food project in Armley. There will be an open-mic section at the start of the evening, which begins at 7.30pm. More details

Thanks to everyone who came out on a foggy, miserable Monday night in Leeds. Your generosity meant we raised £90 for Real Junk Food, which will go towards helping them continue their work. Special thanks to Mark Connors and all the open-mic poets. Brilliant.
