Pre-Pride Condom Packing
July 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It’s fast approaching Leeds Pride and as part of our wider community involvement, we’re teaming up with our good friends at Yorkshire Mesmac again to help them stuff their condoms!
Come along to Mesmac’s new offices (very close to Blayds Bar) even if you can only spare half an hour, your help will be very much appreciated, it’s also great to have a chin wag with your mates too and call for a pint afterwards 🙂
You just need to glance at their website to see all the different projects they facilitate and manage, offering support for all different groups of gay/bisexual men – a function that otherwise would not be available. This ranges from simply providing a space for external support groups, social groups for various groups to more intensive counseling and one to one support.
They also provide an alternative sexual health screening service, making these easier to access than the current function from the NHS sexual health centres. Obviously, as a charity group they’re always desperately looking for sponsorship and funding in order to continue providing these services – but not all of us have the spare money.
Mesmac would really appreciate you donating a couple of hours of your spare time. Every week they provide the Leeds bars (and other gay venues) with thousands of safer sex packs, containing condoms & lube. These don’t pack themselves, so they rely on members of the community for their help in doing the packing. It’s a simple job, but in reality these packs save lives.
Want to join us ? You’re welcome to just drop by on the evening, even just for part of the time we’re there, every bit of time helps, but it would be better if we were expecting you so that Mesmac have plenty of supplies ready to maximise the value of time given to support.
