Another success for the Trade Health & Wellbeing Marquee at Leicester Pride 2013!

Trade Sexual Health once again joined forces with the Leicester GUM Clinic to present the Health & Wellbeing Marquee at Leicester Pride 2013.

For the 4th year running the health and wellbeing marquee included a full sexual health testing clinic and a bunch of fun and interactive information stands.

This year they launched a host of new services including the LGB&T STOP smoking drop in service in partnership with the NHS Stop Smoking team, the new improved Trade website, a second men’s testing clinic and the new Open Mind LGB&T talking therapy service to name a few.

People visiting the marquee had access to a team of experts from; Safe& LWA – domestic violence team, Open Mind and Leicester Recovery Partnership drug and alcohol services, offering advice and information and PureGym and their personal trainers who offered blood pressure and BMI checks.

Pride goers marvelled and enjoyed creating their own refreshing fruit drink on the Cyclone Smoothie bike. And for those wanting a break from the hustle and bustle our team of therapists from ARC Leicester offered FREE shoulder, foot or head massages in the comfort of the Trade chill out area.

Trade, with the clinic managed to test 126 people!

Thank you to everyone who came along! None of this could have been possible without all our volunteers, staff and the help of our committed Board of Trustees.
