ORGANISERS are planning one of the summer’s most colourful events.
Calderdale Pride started three years ago and chairman Matt Gostridge said fundraising is already underway to raise the £6,000 needed to hold the event in Halifax’s Piece Hall on June 18.
“We’re hoping this event will promote inclusivity and different cultures. It’s about breaking down barriers.”
The event will include a children and families quarter.
“Live entertainment will include a local and national performers from a wide range of genres and will be headlined by an act guaranteed to put smiles on the faces of everyone there,” said Matt.
The group have already applied to local groups for financial support, but also need help from local businesses.
“We would appeal for them to lend their support, be it a cash donation, advertising or support in kind through loan of staff time, competition prizes or other resources.”
They also want to hear from other people who want to get involved.
