Thank You Greenwich!

22nd August 2011

Thank you for making the Drag Race a huge success

Well even if we are a bit sore in the heels we need to say a big thank you to all of the lovely people, businesses and Police of Greenwich and further afield who made the 2011 Drag Race the biggest and best so far. The evening went off without a hitch, even though the rain in the afternoon threatened the odd damp hem, and together we have shown what our local community is capable of achieving. The winner this year was Frau Margot Struwwelisch (aka Stefan Unger) who came with her friend Frau Dagmar Diarrhoea all the way from Frankfurt, Germany to run in the race! They saw the race last year as spectators and enjoyed it so much that they came back, with a friend who was make-up and dress carrier, to run this year. The Richest Drag of the night was Fanny Lacoste (known as Colin Day to his friends) who raised an incredible £500!

We need to say a big thank you to the Rose & Crown staff, Prowler, Mike Catterall Floral Designs for the most incredible bouquets, Coffee Cake & Kink, Davy's Wine bar, Meantime Brewing, Restaurant San Miguel, ID Glide, Greenwich Picture house, Miss Rose Garden, The Duchesss and the George & Dragon for all their prizes and support. Big thanks also to our amazing volunteers and staff who pulled together to pull this off.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

David - Counselling

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
