Manchester Roller Derby is delighted to have been nominated for Community Group of the Year in the Lesbian & Gay Foundation’s Homo Heroes Awards 2014.
In January, MRD held an ‘Intro to Roller Derby’ taster session for the Lesbian & Gay Foundation. Participants were given a brief demo of a roller derby bout then given some lessons in skating, making and countering hits (off skates) and a very fun game of ‘sock derby’! The evening was a great success and we received excellent feedback.
MRD is all about inclusivity and seizes any opportunity to spread the derby love. It doesn’t matter what your background, shape, size, gender or sexuality is – derby is for everyone. We’re looking forward to future work with the LGF and other charities/community groups.
