Here are some of the testimonies from our visits:

 

"I found the talk really interesting as it illuminated any questions people had about what is socially acceptable. I thought it was a positive thing to do."
"It was helpful because we could ask the person leading the workshop anything we liked."

“The stories were good like the one about the famous footballer who was filling up with petrol. The boys made racist comments about him and did not realise he was famous until he turned around. When he did, they recognised him and asked for an autograph!”
