Share the love

The sun was out and although there were no weather-related rainbows, Firstsite in Colchester was full of rainbow Pride!

A massive welcome to Hazel and well done on your first GoodGym task! Hazel got stuck in with helping sell tickets at the door while Louise went to marshal and the fabulous Pride parade and then came back to scan tickets. Meanwhile Tav and I were on litter picking duty.

As usual the event was great fun with lots of food, music, performers, acceptance and love!

A great day we were proud to be part of.
