From today's Leicester Mercury:
Students taught on variety of religions at roadshow 
Students and volunteers got together to take part in a faith roadshow. 
More than 1,300 young people from Gateway College met with religious representatives from eight faiths at the Religion and Belief Roadshow. 
It was aimed at teaching students about a variety of religions including Baha'i, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism, Humanism and Islam. 
The event was organised at the college, in Colin Grundy Drive, Leicester, by the St Phillip's Centre, based in Stoughton Drive North, in Evington. 
Riaz Ravat, from the St Phillip's Centre, said: "The Religion and Belief Roadshow is an important part of our Inter Faith Week programme because it will reach hundreds of young people. 
"Students saw several world views all interacting with one another and spreading inter faith messages of compassion, respect and peace. 
"This is a powerful statement which they can use as an example to tackle intolerance and promote peace."
