Stoke on Trent Pride is a Charity (Registered Charity Number 1157754) which was formed in 2014. There is a board of Trustees who are also committee members. Together we raise funds for the annual Stoke on Trent Pride event which was first launched in 2006.
It is the ethos of the committee to run a totally transparent Charity, to hold public meetings in order to learn what the local community wants for their Pride event and to endeavour to create an event which not only celebrates the diversity of our LGBT community but also to create an event which is a family friendly event which is accessible for all.
Stoke on Trent Pride is run by passionate members of the community for the community, however we cannot do this without the help of the general public and local businesses. We rely totally on private donations, sponsorship and the generosity of the community in our bucket collections. We spend a full 12 months raising money and planning each event through various fundraising events. These fundraising events not only raise much needed funds but help to bring the community together.
We have various ways in which you can get involved in the Charity, whether it is by becoming a volunteer, by attending our fundraisers, by becoming a Sponsor, by having a stall at Pride or by simply making a donation.
Together we can make Stoke on Trent Pride a great event. Together we can celebrate diversity in our community. Together we can help to stamp out homophobia and transphobia. Together we can celebrate Pride, not only Stoke on Trent Pride but Pride in Stoke on Trent.
