Yesterday I had a stall at the Opportunity Knocks - Personal Development event at the MAZCC Centre in Leeds. There were various stands in different parts of the building with representatives from employment, educational & activity groups, as well as Jewish interest stands including Leeds Jewish Welfare Board.
I was in the 'creative area' along with volunteers who run artistic groups at the Centre and Andrew & Hayley from HRAM Comics. There were quite a lot of people milling about and lots of ooing and ahhing over my latest card and jewellery creations - all very gratifying!
One of the highlights of the event was hearing Paralympian Medallist Elizabeth Wright speaking about her experiences as a sportswoman. She was truly inspirational and I am delighted I had the opportunity to hear her speak.
