TWO members of The Co-operative Group’s South East Regional Board were in the party spirit at the Brighton Pride festival.
Kathryn Smith and Len Wardle, Chair Designate of the Group, were helping the membership team demonstrate The Co-operative’s environmental credentials with the ‘Show Some Love’ promotion, which gave people the opportunity to offset the carbon emissions they produced by travelling to and from the event.
Co-operative Affairs Officer Nick Hempleman said: “The system proved really popular and was housed in our all-new mobile exhibition trailer — which is, of course, powered by a wind turbine, providing free, clean and renewable electricity.
“The other key aim of our presence at Pride this year was to promote our new LGBT Network, an online community where members can engage in discussion and debate.”
