Mitzvah Day: Corrie actress takes leading role

November 19, 2009

Coronation Street actress Kate Anthony opened the Leeds Mitzvah Day programme, telling supporters at the Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Community Centre that “people shouldn’t just do a mitzvah on Mitzvah Day, but should do a small good deed to help somebody every day”.

She then made her own contribution by taping a short story for users of Leeds Jewish Blind Society’s Talking Books scheme.

Also in the city, volunteers ran a bingo session for Donisthorpe Hall’s elderly residents, who were further entertained by an X-Factor-style talent contest co-ordinated by Helen Frais.
