Another year, another fabulous show of Touchstone supporting the LGBT+ community at Leeds Pride!
Partnering with Leeds Mind, Live Well Leeds, and Community Links, this year our #PartnersInPride saw a great turn out for the biggest parade ever seen at Leeds Pride, with 130 companies parading and over 60,000 spectators. P.S. Ours was the big red vintage bus, full of and surrounded by our celebratory colleagues and clients – and of course our lovely CEO joining in the celebrations!
Alongside this, our all day stall in the #PartnersInPride tent offered information and support to the public about our services, where we are privileged to be able to combine our passion for mental health and diversity and inclusion. We collected an amazing 100+ pledges from attendees of ways in which they “take pride in their mental health”.
