An Open Letter to Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP

Monday, 3 December 2018

Dear Lloyd,

On behalf of General Council and Woodcraft Folk I want to express our support and admiration for the speech you gave in parliament last week. Since you became MP for Brighton Kemptown it’s been a pleasure and delight to see someone who was chair of our organisation and who lives and breathes Woodcraft Folk giving a voice to young people in the commons, and your brave decision to publicly share your HIV positive status only adds to our pride.
