Pay It Forward: Alternative Wedding Day

Pay It Forward: Alternative Wedding Day

What’s all this about the Royal Wedding? Oh wait, everyone’s got a day off work! Let’s do something fun…

This was pretty much the conversation between Trinity Community Arts, Lets Do Nice Things and the love of it that inspired the creation of our Alternative Wedding Day. So on 29th April, we’re running a free day of fun and frolics at the Trinity Centre for everyone to enjoy.

Hopefully by now you’ve heard us at least mention Pay It Forward, which is the love of it‘s big project for 2011. To read more about why, what and how, see our handy love of it guide to Pay It Forward… The Alternative Wedding Day falls in Pay It Forward week, and so we’re hosting this day of fun, and then encouraging you to pay forward the kindness…

So what’s happening at our Alternative Wedding Day I hear you cry? Well, here’s a run down of what you can expect…
