People Like Us Stockport is a social group for the borough’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community. They teamed up with Age UK Stockport to put in an entry into last Saturday’s Manchester Pride Parade.
Their efforts did not go unnoticed, as they were given an award for the Best Charity Float.
Under the Rainbow spoke to the PLUS Chairperson Chris, about the award.
