We also had a stall at the event, giving out free goody bags to all those attending pride including valuables such as sanitiser and water. On top of this, our team were asking for donations for merchandise to raise money for local Leicester charity, Trade Sexual Health.
Trade Sexual Health provides free and confidential health advice, information, services and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) communities of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Dr Dina North, CEO at Trade Sexual Health, said: “Pride is such an important event for Leicester, offering diversity and inclusion that extends to every single person. Having the largest automotive retailer: Sytner Group present and fundraise at the pride is incredibly important for awareness and integration of the community. A big thank you from all of us!
“Also Trade would like to take this opportunity to welcome Jodie Williams, Head of Diversity and Inclusion to the team – it is an important role and we hope to work with you further soon”
Simon Harrison, Sytner Group colleague on the Leicester Pride Committee, said: “This year’s Leicester Pride was a huge success and it was fantastic to have Sytner Group on board as one of the main partners this year.
“It’s great that the business is willing to support Leicester Pride and the local communities, not just today but ongoing through its commitment to diversity and inclusion which is constantly growing.”
