Pre-Carnival preparations in pictures

Caring Together has been gearing-up for some time for our pre-carnival celebration event. The pictures show the hard work that has gone into preparations for the day.

This started some time ago with discussions between our own Lisa Argyle and Arthur France ( MBE Hon LLD Founding member and Chairperson Leeds West Indian Carnival). Arthur is also a member of Caring Together. The first Leeds West Indian Carnival was held in August 1967 and was the first formally organized authentic Caribbean carnival in Europe. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of that year. A tremendous achievement.
