GMB Regional Equality Forum member David Hope received a GMB President’s Award for the “Most Inspirational Individual on Equality in the GMB or at Work” at GMB Congress in Bournemouth today (Sunday 5th June, 2016) for the commitment and enthusiasm he has shown while organising a GMB presence at five separate GMB regional Pride events.

The 99th GMB Congress, comprising of 500 elected lay members and 300 visitors and guests, started today (Sunday 5th June) and runs until Thursday 9th June at Bournemouth’s International Centre.

The GMB award is in recognition of the hard work and commitment that David has shown to Pride events in the region and to GMB as a whole.
