Thank you to all involved in the EUROPEAN DIVERSITY AWARDS this year. It was an incredible event in a stunning venue with the most inspiringly wonderful speakers, performers, nominees and winners. We are all winning every day when we share our humanity. 

Yes that’s me and my new mate Sandi! Respect to everyone involved in this celebration of diversity. 


SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US & WE”LL SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD – Please make a video for the Give ’em Hope Campaign. What we do & why we do it: 
Making a video couldn’t be easier. You have a phone that is smart and you have a heart. Dare to care and care to share. 

We didn’t win but we won. To be nominated and shortlisted is an incredible honour and acknowledgement of all that everyone does and has done to spread the word that limiting labels are not ok. You live your authentic lives and that is a gift to the world. Thank you, Thank you and thank YOU for being part of our wonderful family of hope. As Toni, admin for the campaign, said, we win EVERY DAY.
And as some passing philsopher just commented, “It’s not the winning, it’s the wine…”
Such wisdom.
