We’re proud to be bringing a splash of colour to London’s New Year’s Day Parade after joining forces with the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham and Barking & Dagenham College.
Every borough in London is invited to put forward an entry in the London New Year’s Day Parade. This year’s designated theme is ‘London on the Move’. Barking & Dagenham’s float features a striking steam train, which has been constructed by students from Barking & Dagenham College and coated in products and colours from Johnstone’s diverse range.
All entries are automatically entered into the Boroughs’ Competition, competing for a share of the big charity prize pot which in recent years has reached £40,000. If Barking & Dagenham’s float is successful then they will be donating their prize money to the Mayor’s Charity Appeal in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust Appeal.
Check back in January for photos of the event. Best of luck, guys – we’ll be rooting for you!
