OneFamily, the Brighton-based, financial services company, is delighted to announce its sponsorship of the Pride Family Diversity Area, Saturday 5th August. The enclosed area within Preston Park will be a fun-filled space for families to enjoy the Pride festival together.
Brighton Pride, which takes place from 4-6 August, is the biggest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community event in the UK, with over 300,000 people participating in the celebrations across the city last year. The Family Diversity Area is located within the Pride Festival site at Preston Park.
OneFamily Customer Strategy Director, Karl Elliott, said: “We are really excited to be continuing our support of the Brighton Pride festival and look forward to what will be a spectacular showcase that really celebrates the diversity of the city.
“As a Brighton employer is gives us great pleasure to be able to support a local event that both our employees and their families enjoy so much.”
Paul Kemp, Brighton Pride Community Interest Company, said: “Brighton Pride has evolved over the years with more communities coming together to celebrate every aspect of our city, regardless of sexuality, race, gender, age or ability. We are delighted that OneFamily is supporting the event for the second year running and sponsoring our Family Diversity Area.”
Last year’s Brighton Pride Festival raised a record breaking £100,000 for LGBT and HIV organisations and good causes across Sussex. Beneficiaries included Allsorts Youth Project, Lunch Positive, LGBT Community Safety Forum, MindOut, Peer Action and Clare Project.
OneFamily will also have a float in the Pride parade.
