Medway Pride 2020

Published 01/03/2020

MGSD Centre is working with Medway Pride, Metro Charity and Creatabot to promote and deliver Medway Pride 2020,.

Medway Pride Community Organisation

Medway Pride (MPCO) is a not for profit community organisation which aims to promote equality and diversity across all communities for the public benefit and in particular the elimination of discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity especially for those living in Medway and the surrounding areas in particular but not exclusively by:

1) Raising awareness and educating the public about the issues and difficulties affecting the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer & Intersex (LGBTQI+) people;

2) Cultivating a sentiment in favour of equality and diversity in particular through celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQI+ community;

3) Staging an annual LGBTQI+ festival and smaller events, including regular social events for the LGBTQI+ community in a safe environment throughout the year.

4) providing funding and or grants and or donations to other charitable and voluntary organisations which support diversity and inclusion of LGBTQI+ communities in Medway.

Medway Pride 2020 festival on Saturday 22nd August is going to be a colourful fun filled event for all the family to celebrate diversity and support equality for all communities of Medway. It is in essence a community cohesion event to bring everyone together, break down barriers and develop understanding and acceptance of each other. 

We are working with Medway Council and Partners to make sure we have a safe event which will include a Pride Parade from Chatham to Rochester Castle where we will host a community festival with stage performances and representations for community support organisations who deliver services to Medway Communities

To deliver this fantastic celebration of diversity we need to raise funding to cover the costs of Medway Pride festival, which we estimate to be in the range of £18,000 to £22,000 pounds. The community response since the announcement of Medway Pride 2020 has been very positive and sponsors will have a direct connection with the public via branded advertising and association with Medway Pride.

Would you or your business consider becoming a Main Medway Pride Sponsor, or a Pride Supporter, or Donor. 

We have three packages that include 

£5000 + Sponsor branding on our advertising on www.medwaypride.co.uk website, social media, at the festival,

£3000 + Supporter branding less prominent that a sponsor on our advertising, www.medwaypride.co.uk website and social media.

£500+ Donor with a listing on www.medwaypride.co.uk website.

Medway Pride partners can provide your business with training and advice on LGBTQI+ diversity especially awareness training for your employees as part of a main sponsor or supporter sponsorship package.

If not one of the above packages or in addition too, a drive to raise donations or run sponsorship events to support Medway Pride.

Please contact me to discuss how we can work together to deliver Medway Pride 2020

We look forward to working with you to celebrate Medway’s cultural diversity

Yours sincerely
