Seventh Brighton Equality Walk to be held in May
The seventh Brighton Equality Walk will be held on Sunday May 2nd.
The walk, organised by gay rights charity Stonewall, attracted 400 people last year and raised more than £50,000, which went towards funding the anti-bullying film FIT.
Walkers must pay £10 to register and will receive a goody bag and special edition t-shirt. All participants need to do is raise more than the registration fee with prizes for the top fundraising individuals and groups.
One of the prizes is a luxury weekend for two in Paris including business-class travel on Eurostar, two nights’ stay in a luxury hotel and £500 spending money.
This year’s walk will support Stonewall’s Education for All programme which tackles homophobic bullying in Britain’s schools.
Ben Summerskill, Stonewall’s chief executive, said: “The Brighton Equality Walk has always been a key event in Stonewall’s fundraising calendar.
“This year we’re continuing our focus on stamping out homophobic bullying in schools. Secondary school teachers say that homophobic bullying is the second most frequent form of bullying in our schools.’
