Event Hightlights

"Red is the fire in my heart, every time you are here around.
Green is the hope you never give up, the confidence you need when you are lost.
Yellow is the colour of the sun, of canaries, sunflowers and bees.
Blue is the calm after a fight, when you know everything will be alright.
Everything has its own colour. Do not let your life be black and white.
Colour Your Life!"
