We were nominated for the Carer of the Year award at the Pride of Warwick District Awards! Sadly we didn't win on the night, but it was an honour to be considered.
We are also recently nominated for the Community Organisation Award for LGBT at the National Diversity Awards! Amazing stuff! Our founder Dan has been nominated for the Positive Role Model Award for LGBT at the National Diversity Awards too! Again, amazing! Sadly neither Push or Dan made the final shortlist, but we are grateful to everyone who voted and continues to support us.
Throughout July and August Asda in Leamington Spa were
asking shoppers to allocate green tokens to one of three
good causes they are supporting. Push Projects was one of
them! We are very happy to have come runner up. That
meant we were to receive a £50 cheque. However, kind
shoppers at the supermarket donated cash and bumped the
amount Push received to £100. Thank you to Asda and
everyone who donated a green token to us for supporting
out cause. We will use the money to do something special for
our support group members.
We are the organisers of Warwickshire Pride!!! The next
festival will take place on Saturday 28th June 2014 at the
Pump Room Gardens in Leamington Spa. There will be stalls,
performers and all sorts of fabulousness. To find out more
please visit the Warwickshire Pride website and make sure
you get involved. It's gonna be amazing!!!
