Brighton businesses help The Clock Tower Sanctuary take part in its first ever Pride parade!
Health communications consultancy Pegasus and print provider One Digital have joined forces to create a colourful, open-topped bus, so a group of staff and volunteers from Brighton homeless charity The Clock Tower Sanctuary can take part in Pride for the very first time.
The eye-popping, rainbow bus will be one of the first ten floats in the parade which takes place this Saturday 4th August. The team from The Clock Tower Sanctuary will be using the city-wide celebration to help raise awareness of its important work with the young homeless community.
Natalia Borg, Development Manager at The Clock Tower Sanctuary said, “We are so excited to be part of Pride for the first time. For us, it will be a chance to celebrate the generosity and compassion of local residents and businesses in our city. Without their support, there simply wouldn’t be a dedicated day centre for homeless young people. Many of the young people we work with flourish despite facing severe personal, family and social adversity. They inspire us every day and we are proud to work with them.”
Helen, a 27-year-old volunteer who will be on the bus on Saturday, said, “I can’t wait to be in the parade. The atmosphere is going to be amazing. I love what The Clock Tower Sanctuary does here in Brighton. We accept everyone and we never judge – I think that is definitely something to celebrate!”
Kat Thay from Pegasus said, “We’ve been supporting The Clock Tower Sanctuary for the last two years now, both with fundraising, donations to food banks, and lending our skills and time where we can. Pride is a perfect platform to tell more people in Brighton about the impact the charity makes in our local community. And it’s also a brilliant way for the hard-working volunteers to let their hair down, have fun and celebrate the vital role they play.”
Join in the fun!
See you there!
