Volunteer Coordinators: Colin Christine & Kevin White

Grampian Pride would be impossible without our team of amazing volunteers, and it’s Colin and Kevin’s job to look after the volunteers and keep everyone moving in the right direction. Kevin works for the NHS and Colin works in education. They have been together since 1990. Pride is important to them because when they were first together, in the UK you could still be sacked for being gay.

Jade Decorations: Jade Leyden

Jade’s job is to make Grampian Pride look fabulous! She works as a Community Development Officer with Aberdeen City Council and also volunteers with the Bridging the Gap with Kinship Support SCIO. She loves planning things and crafting, so when the opportunity to help out with Pride came up she jumped at the chance.
