Hailed as its biggest and best yet, Chester Pride was a roaring success this year for all involved. However for some it was more than an excuse to wear some bright colours, have a giggle with friends or see who can drink the most beer in a seven hour period. For Nice ‘n’ Naughty Director Simon Prescott it was a way to honour a close friend who sadly passed away this year.
Michael Britain, aka Hank, had always been a very ardent supporter of Pride and when he passed away Nice ‘n’ Naughty wanted to make sure that he was remembered so set out with the full backing of the company director Simon Prescott and help from local businesses the Golden Eagle, Duttons, Bar Lounge, Liquor & Co. Kings Head and Coach House to ensure that Hanks memory was honoured.
Setting up in local bar The Golden Eagle, Chester Store Manager Victoria Gower and fellow member of staff Karen Hewitt set up a table full of rainbow goodies and joined forces with long-time friend of the company Ken Pleavin. After arming Ken with book of raffle tickets, and themselves with a list of weights for a fun version of “Guess The Weight” the group held fun demonstrations for couples with electro sex toys on the willing crowds and drew giggles and gasps when they revealed the actual weight of the toy. (To give you a clue – his first name was SUPER!)
The raffle with its wide selection of prizes ranging from wine and store vouchers,electro-sex kits kindly donated by our suppliers and a £210 male toy. With such an eclectic range of prizes the raffle raised a whopping £150 towards Pride with the goal being to keep the event free. Despite raising a lot of laughs and a large amount of money Victoria felt that she could have done more and was ecstatic when Simon, who was touched by the amount of effort Victoria and friends had put in informed her that Nice ‘n’ Naughty would increase the money raised, bringing the grand total to £400.
Vicky is already counting the days until next year’s Pride and has promised us that she’s got a lot more tricks up her sleeve.
Nice ‘n’ Naughty is honoured again to be supporting The Golden Eagle on Saturday 19th December for a “Kinky Christmas” party with fantastic entertainment again from Dj Steph and Disco/Dance Vocalist Night.
