St Leonard's Hospice - Paws For A Cause 2019
📅 Sunday 1 September 2019
Ron Cooke Hub, York University
Calling all pooches... grab your leads, drag along your owners and join us for ‘Paws for a Cause’ - our annual sponsored dog walk! You’ll receive a certificate for your kennel, a doggy bag and a bandana just for taking part. There's a 4 mile route or if you’re a puppy or have young handlers, then you can opt for the gentler 1 mile route instead.
After the walk there will be all sorts of stalls and games to get involved in, starting from 12noon.

Events fundraiser, Katie Ayrton, said “Paws for a Cause is a great way to support the Hospice and have a fun day out with your four-legged friend – whilst meeting lots of other dogs and dog owners! All dogs will receive a certificate for their kennel and a goody bag for taking part. I’d like to thank the Minster Veterinary Practice for sponsoring this event!

Check-in starts at 9:15am for the 4 mile route, with the walk beginning at 10am.
Check-in for the shorter 1 mile route starts at 10:30am with the walk beginning at 11:15am. Strut your stuff in one of the Fun Dog Classes which start at 12noon; Cutest Canine, Scruffiest Mutt, Waggiest Tail, Best Trick, Best Veteran (7 years +), Favourite Family (2 dogs minimum from same family, 14 legs maximum).
Entry costs £7 for the walk, with classes at £2 each.

Paul Berriff

Evening With Paul Berriff
📅 Monday 23 September 2019
Everyman Cinema, Blossom Street, York
Come and meet BAFTA winner Paul Berriff at Everyman Cinema York and hear him speak about his life and career as a photographer and filmmaker, in a career spanning 50 years from the 1960s to the present day.

Paul will speak about his early influences as a 1950s paper boy, his time as a young press photographer for the Yorkshire Evening Post, and onto his days with the BBC and as an independent film maker.

During this time Paul met and photographed many young bands and artists who later became household names such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix and Sandie Shaw. He covered The Troubles in Northern Ireland, worked on the James Bond 'Live and Let Die' film set and filmed with Prince Charles for a year. He is the only director/ producer to have been given permission to follow the lives of NASA shuttle astronauts and their families as they prepared for launch.

Being a film maker can be a hazardous affair and Paul has experienced his fair share of danger, surviving four near-death experiences - leaping from a sinking ship in the North Sea, being blown from the top of an exploding volcano in Nicaragua, walking away from a major helicopter crash in the Scottish Cairngorms, and miraculously surviving (along with his film camera) the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11.

Paul’s talk will be accompanied by photographs and film footage of the events he’s captured.

Tickets £20 including a welcome drink and canapes. Proceeds in aid of St Leonard's!
