It’s one year today since we learned we’d lost the wonderful James Manto
James was a regular member at Gap from 2011 to 2013 and in that time, he made a great many friends and shared so many happy times. In 2012 he was crowned Prom King at our very first LGBT Prom, alongside our Prom Queen and his best friend Jasmine. He moved on to university, but stayed in touch and we always looked forward to his annual ‘passing visit’ at our Gap birthday parties.
He had been enjoying university life to the full and was on an amazing Geology field trip, when a tragic accident took him from us, far too soon.
All those staff, volunteers and young people who knew James at Gap, miss him dearly
