The initiative, which follows the world famous Leeds International Piano Competition of which the University is a long-term supporter, features well known individuals associated with Yorkshire and the Arts generally contributing a postcard themed around pianos and music. The postcards now form part of a unique exhibition hosted at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery, Leeds; they will be auctioned off on eBay to raise funds for the two charities.

The exhibition runs until Saturday 13 October, while the eBay auction will start on Thursday 4 October and finish on Sunday 14 October. Admission to the exhibition is free, for full details please visit
