OneFamily announces Brighton & Hove Pride partnership

Posted in: Corporate

OneFamily, the Brighton-based financial services company, is delighted to announce it will be an official partner of the Brighton & Hove Pride 2018 festival.

Brighton & Hove Pride, which takes place from 3-5 August, is the biggest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community event in the UK, with over 400,000 people participating in the celebrations across the city last year.

OneFamily CEO, Simon Markey, said:

“We are really excited to be continuing our support of Brighton & Hove Pride and look forward to what will be a spectacular showcase that really celebrates the diversity of the city.

“As a Brighton employer it is great to be able to support a local event that so many of our employees and their families enjoy and take part in.”

Paul Kemp, Managing Director at Brighton & Hove Pride, said:

“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 third year running and joining this years’ parade which is themed Colour My World.”

Over the last three years Brighton & Hove Pride Festival has raised a record-breaking £455,000 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. As part of the partnership, OneFamily will have a float in the Pride parade, staffed by employees.
