Gary Pargeter, Volunteer Project Manager at Lunch Positive: “It’s fantastic that we’re staging our café at Pride again this year. It’s a real privilege to be part of Pride and the newly sited Community Village at Preston Park.

“Pride means so much to us, not only it’s equalities mission and opportunity for our community to stand together, but also its important role in raising funds for the Rainbow Fund. While the Community Cafe is a major annual fundraiser for us, we’re relying more on our own resources to stage our café, freeing up those for Pride to develop its own sustainability. Please come along and get your food and drink from us. Tell your friends and everyone you know who’ll be at Preston Park!”
