Purple Friday
This Friday, 23rd February, is Purple Friday.  To show your support of the LGBT+ community we invite you to wear something purple on this day.  This is NOT a dress down day but you could wear a purple accessory such as a hair band, nail polish, badge, arm/wrist band, socks, etc.  Also, the LGBT group will be coming round tutor groups throughout the week to sell #EveryDayHero badges.  There is a suggested donation of 25p but a greater donation is more than welcome. All proceeds go to LGBT Youth Scotland.
