Brighton & Hove Pride is thrilled to announce its biggest ever fund for community causes in 2018, of £250,000.

Brighton & Hove Pride is now recognised as one of the World’s best Pride events with visitors coming from across the UK and World to celebrate diversity and inclusion.

This record fundraising amount will be distributed as grants to LGBT+/HIV organisations and community groups through the Rainbow Fund, the Pride Social Impact Fund, Pride Cultural Development Fund and new Pride Solidarity Fund.

The new Sunday community day in Preston Park – LoveBN1Fest – helped raised even more funds with £20,000 being allocated from the SIF fund for good causes around Preston park & St James St area.

Brighton Pride CIC Managing Director, Paul Kemp, said; “We are immensely grateful for the support of everyone who purchased tickets for the official Pride events, as well as our sponsors all of whom have helped us raise this record amount for good causes across our City.

 “We really want our local communities and businesses across the City to benefit from the Pride weekend and we are delighted that this year’s event has helped to bring economic boost to the city as well as raising much needed funds for our communities.”
