Labour of Love Celebrates

Thank you to everyone who attended the event on Sunday to celebrate the end of the residency in the Olympic Park and to be presented with their Labour of Love file and limited-edition publication.

It was wonderful to meet everyone again after our first encounters in the Labour of Love shed. We also enjoyed a few readings from the files, including a tap dancing Bryant & May worker, dentistry in County Durham and unprofessional jumpers.  I’m really glad that so many members from the Dao Lu group and the ESOL class from Bromley-by-Bow Centre made it to celebrate with us too.

A very big THANK YOU to all 170 people who took part in the Labour of Love project!
