This yearly event brings out the best of Greenwich and has become an integral part of the community's calendar. Supported by local businesses, this colourful and fun event raises money for the Metro Centre's community strengthening projects.
Each year, a crowd of sponsored contestants run a circuit through Greenwich Town Centre in full Drag makeup and the first past the finish line is crowned the winner! To see photos of past Drag Race events have a look below or to get yourself involved email firstname.lastname@example.org
Abimbola- First Point
It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.
David - Counselling
Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.
Ebere - First Point
I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.
Joe - Mentoring
The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!
Kwasi - Mentoring
During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.
Simon - Mentoring
By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.
Michael - Counselling
I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.
Peter- First Point
I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.
Sarah - Counselling
The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.
Joan - First Point
Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.
