CCL is sponsoring a fundraising event organised by ‘Hour Leeds’, a charity initiative which aims to fight poverty at a local level. Celebrities from across the UK were invited to design a clock face, taking no more than one hour of their time, for the ‘Clockworks’ exhibition to be held in Leeds from 21 – 28 June.
Celebrities who have already made their artistic contributions include musicians the Kaiser Chiefs, Alison Moyet and Julian Lloyd Webber, sports personalities Paul Collingwood, Nicola Adams, Peter Lorimer and Jamie Peacock and playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourne CBE. Prime Minister David Cameron has also submitted a clock face for this very worthwhile cause.
Following the exhibition, the clocks will be auctioned to raise much needed funds for the Hour Leeds campaign to help destitute families in the area.
All designs can be viewed at hourleeds.blogspot.com or on the Hour Leeds Facebook page: www.facebook.com/hourleeds2013 where bids can be made by email up until 5 July.
The Hour Leeds campaign highlights the problem of poverty faced by people at a local level and asks members of the public to donate one hour of their earnings to the charity to help people who live close by.
