Charity concert for Heart Research

An entertainment group formed by five friends which has raised over £40,000 for good causes earned £2,500 for the Leeds Lord Mayor’s charity, Heart Research UK, from a concert at Leeds Civic Hall. Howard Lee, Jack Transport, Irene Collins, Alan Harris and Sue Sherman established Onstage four years ago to help charities and promote Yorkshire talent. The Lord Mayor, Councillor Brian Cleasby, was so impressed by a show he attended that he invited the group to use the civic hall banqueting suite. Previous beneficiaries have included Leeds Jewish Welfare Board, Donisthorpe Hall and the Leeds Jewish Committee of Yorkshire Cancer Research.
