Public welcome to attend memorial service for Ann Maguire

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Ann Maguire will take place at Leeds Town Hall, on Monday, 29 September 2014 at 12 noon.

Members of the public are welcome to join invited guests to celebrate Ann’s life and her contribution to education in the city throughout her teaching career, which spanned more than 40 years.

The memorial service has been planned in conjunction with Mrs Maguire’s family so that there is an opportunity for everyone who wants to honour Ann’s memory to attend.

Councillor Keith Wakefield, leader of Leeds City Council said:

“Ann Maguire spent her whole career educating, nurturing and supporting generations of young people at Corpus Christi Catholic College. This public memorial service will give us all an opportunity to celebrate her life and her outstanding contribution to education in the city.”

The Ann Maguire Arts Education Fund has been set up in Ann’s memory and donations can be made via: https://www.justgiving.com/ann-maguire/. The fund will provide bursaries and funding for the enhancement and personal development of young people under 18 years old through music, drama, language and dance.
