FORGET the shopping frenzy prompted by Black Friday - a sales initiative celebrated the Friday after Thanksgiving in the US.

Charities and organisations in Bradford are hosting their own alternative - Buy Nothing Day - to help profile their work helping people to manage their money.

Artworks Creative Communities along with Credit Union, Storehouse, Shared Spaces, University of Bradford Full Scale, Martin House Hospice, Cycle Recycle and many more will be creating a 'Currency Free Zone' at the Delius Arts and Cultural Centre in Great Horton Road, Bradford.

Participants will be able to play and explore creatively with food and fun things to make during the event which runs from 3 until 7pm on Friday November 24.
