19 days to go!

Hi guys!

It’s now only 19 days until Learning Disability Pride on Saturday 27th May 2017!

We just wanted to give you a quick update – we have been busy confirming arrangements for our market and information stall holders, parade participants and entertainment/workshops on the day! There is limited availability left for stalls – please email learningdisabilitypride@gmail.com if you have a last minute booking and we will try to fit you in.

We’ve also caught up with some groups who have been designing flags and banners to display during the carnival parade – including our very own Carrickfergus Gateway Club members, and the Mencap Down/Lisburn Employment and Personal Development Service trainees! There truly is plenty to be proud of and we love seeing how you plan to #flytheflagforlearningdisability – check them out on our Twitter feed https://twitter.com/LD_Pride2017.
We found design your own flag kits in Home Bargains in the festival/party section for less than £5 which is a great idea for your own group if you haven’t had time to create your own yet.

Carrickfergus Gateway Club also sent out reminder letters to families and carers last week to confirm numbers joining in the carnival parade – if you haven’t done so yet, now is the time to do it! And please do let us know how many people you plan to bring to join the parade by emailing learningdisabilitypride@gmail.com.

We’re also very excited that our posters and other materials will be arriving from the printers very soon! In the meantime, check out our flyer below that you can share on social media to let your friends and family know what a great day Learning Disability Pride is going to be  and encourage them to join our event page at the following link –  https://www.facebook.com/events/370891019975504/!

We simply cannot wait!
