Since 2018, Strawberry Lemonade Events has engaged with hundreds of people facing social exclusion issues.
Even during the pandemic, SLE remotely ran a food bank, mobilising drivers and connecting them to people in dire straits. This service delivered over 25,000 meals.
Event Management Fundamentals- our flagship course has worked with over 100 people, upskilling them in areas of marketing, event production, customer service and budgeting. In 2022, we hosted our first event in Liverpool, “Bordering on Wild” film festival which was organised purely by those who had been on our course, including selecting all the films on show in the FACT cinema.
All events, be it a Strawberry Lemonade Events 60th birthday party or a SL Events (sister brand) corporate conference all are staffed by people who have completed our course as there can be no social change until everyone is given a chance and a wage.
Strawberry Lemonade Events is an ally to the LGBTQI+ community, is a member of OutBritain and we we fight for your right to party.
Amongst many successes that we have had as an organisation, supporting Britney to gain their right to remain settlement status in a landmark case as the first non-binary person to be granted this in the UK was a particualrly proud moment.
Britney, hailing from El Salvador was last spotted on the main stage at Liverpool PRIDE. And we are so proud of them. A special thanks to Darren, our Liverpool co-ordinator at the time who supported Britney through their Event Management Fundamentals journey with us.
