Love is in the air and at gig buddies we would like to do a shout out to some of our fabulous supporters this Valentine’s Day!
5. Our volunteers!
For 5 years now we’ve had volunteers sign up to be a gig buddy and as It’s national student volunteer week so a particular shout out to our student volunteers who find time to volunteer whilst studying and no doubt staying up late!
(who turn 4 this week!)
Gig Buddies never dreamed we would become a franchise and they were our first partner all the way over the other side of the world – they still send us regular gifts and their yearly calendar so we can look at their faces every month!
3. Our independent Venues!
In particular Sticky Mikes in Brighton for supporting us throughout the years, hosting our 3rd birthday party and raising funds for us even on the last night of its existence!
2. The Wild Rainbows
They turned 2 this week during LGBT history month and they wanted to celebrate our dear participant and founding advisory group member Ellen who very sadly passed away last month. Ellen will be remembered for being one of the most colourful people we knew!
Because what would Valentines day without Barry – he’s the first, the last our everything!
