Hyde Park Unity Day is just around the corner. An announcement of the date will be made 2 weeks before the event at http://leedsbradford.indymedia.org.uk and at http://www.unityday.org.uk/.
Here is a list of upcoming fundraiser events, and a call out for people to get involved and support Unity Day 2009.
IMC Northern (formerly IMC Leeds/Bradford) will be providing a "Be the media" stand at this years event so come along and meet us there.
Hyde Park Unity Day is a series of events climaxing with a 11 hour day of celebration for the community and visitors of Leeds 6. Since 1996 we have benefited from the enthusiasm of over 260 team members. Each year a new team evolves through social contacts as well as Public meetings where any and all are welcome to join in and make a positive contribution of ideas and energy. There are no paid members of this team, so the professional manner in which Hyde Park Unity Day is organised is all the more impressive as it is done for fun! Its not just a question of taking people as you find them but where, how or what you leave them with.
Hyde Park Unity Day is an association of individuals who give their time and talents freely to create a day celebrating our area and our diversity. We have a Management Committee to help us stay on course with budgeting and planning and Area Co-ordinators who organise the various tasks that have to be done to ensure a day everyone can enjoy. Every year there is a core of people that have been involved in previous years, but we are always on the look out for new talent.
Hyde Park Unity Day is a 'not for profit' voluntary association.
