It’s Pride month, time to celebrate!
We value all our team members and recognise that diversity in our teams helps us be better, so it’s no surprise we’re supporting Pride month.
We’ve planned an office raffle, as well as a Pride-themed team photoshoot, to celebrate and show our support to the LGBTQ+ community. We are proud to wave the Progress Pride Flag, which includes the LGBTQ+ 6 colour rainbow flag, the transgender flag stripes, the brown and black stripes to represent the POC communities and those living with AIDS. All monies raised will be donated to the charity ‘SAYiT’.
SAYiT (Sheena Amos Youth Trust) is a registered independent charity, which has been running in Sheffield since 1999. A charity supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus (LGBT+) youth, they transform the lives of LGBT+ young people through supportive group work, youth action, education and influence.
All donations received to SAYiT go to the Noah Lomax Fund, which was set up by Noah’s family to support the mental health of young LGBT+ people in Sheffield and the surrounding area, providing counselling and a hardship fund for SAYiT young people.
Our Pride activities were supported by our friends at Experience Days, who kindly donated a gift voucher from Experience Days for the raffle prize. They offer a wide range of experiences and activity days around the UK, from spa days to paragliding to cooking classes.
Don’t forget to let us know how you are celebrating Pride Month!
