Celebrations at Manchester and Liverpool Pride

 

Over the summer we’ve shown our #GuidingPride at both Liverpool and Manchester LGBTQ+ Pride Festivals. We’ve had a great time showcasing the very best of Girlguiding and celebrating diversity at these events. 

We've have over 130 volunteers showing off their #GuidingPride at both Manchester and Liverpool Pride festivals, which were watched by thousands of people. 

Attending Pride is a great way to celebrate our diverse membership, and to show everyone that Girlguiding is for all girls! We also had a stall at both events, where visitors had the opportunity to talk to our members about the fantastic experiences available through guiding.

Michelle, 22 from Accrington who helped at the event said: “I had such a great time volunteering at Pride with Girlguiding, its always such a fun experience. Pride was a great way to show that Girlguiding is for all girls, and that we accept everyone for who they are.”

Julie Bell, the Region Chief Commissioner said: “We had such an amazing success at Pride, it was great to showcase some of the amazing things we get up to with Girlguiding. The volunteers came from all over the North West, so it was a fantastic way to make new friends and renew old ones.”

Everyone had a great time. A huge thanks to the lead volunteer team and everyone who helped make Liverpool and Manchester Pride 2017 a great success.
