Feature CSR

On Saturday 2 July, Boots team members were feeling the love in London taking part in and celebrating Pride in London 2022. 

Boots teams decked out Boots stores in Pride colours, wore special Pride 17 t-shirts, waved flags and wore plenty of rainbow make-up as they threw themselves into a very special day of celebrations. 

Peter Markey, Chief Marketing Officer at Boots UK was with the team at the heart of the celebrations on the day. He said: "Pride is so important to me because it is an expression of freedom, an expression to be yourself and to be accepted for who you are, and that's what we are all about at Boots. The thing that excites me most is meeting so many Boots team members, taking part in Pride with them, and being a part of this amazing celebration."
