Northern Pride just wouldn't happen if it wasn't for volunteers.
The Pride Committee is made up entirely of people willing to give up their spare time to help make Newcastle Pride one to remember. But it's not just us who can get in on the act. We rely on the efforts of volunteers in all sorts of areas from people who want to come along and help on the big day itself or at satellite events, to people who want to be involved in all the planning and organising that goes on before hand.
Volunteering isn't for everyone but that doesn't mean you can't help out. Every year we have to raise funds to run the main Pride festival and all the satellite events throughout the year and a lot of the event we run are free. Making a donation either via our website or a collecting bucket or tin either at one of the event or in many of the bars around the scene would be much appreciated.
If your a business there are many ways your company can get involved. You can make a donation to our charity, fundraise on our behalf, offer sponsorship in kind or raise your profile at our fantastic Newcastle Pride event. By supporting Northern Pride you’ll also be sending a clear message that your organisation supports all consumers regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation. You’ll be helping us to promote equality and fairness; working towards a safe environment where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals can promote their culture and work towards removing the social exclusion experienced by many - now that’s a powerful message.
