Harry Styles donates Gucci rainbow loafers to raffle for LGBT mental health charity
Singer Harry Styles has donated a pair of Gucci rainbow loafers to a raffle raising money for the UK’s oldest LGBT+ charity, London Friend.
The raffle, which takes place on Saturday, will also include prizes donated by Years & Years’ Olly Alexander, actor Russell Tovey, Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett, and food writer Nigel Slater.
Styles’ rainbow shoes proved a fan-favourite during the press tour for 2017 film Dunkirk.
Proceeds will go to the LGBT+ mental health charity London Friend, which provides counselling and support to those in the queer community.
It’s being organised in partnership with fashion magazine Fantastic Man and clothing company Blouse.
The raffle will be held during a brunch, at seafood restaurant Neptune, on Saturday July 7 in London, just before the capital’s iconic Pride parade.
Tickets to the brunch cost between £35 and £45, with £10 from each ticket donated to London Friend.
Other items have been donated by author Alan Hollinghurst, architect Ashley Hicks, and a number of fashion brands, including Erdem and Mulberry.
Tens of thousands are expected to attend Pride in London this weekend.
Pride in London runs throughout June and into the beginning of July – with events, including a film festival, being held across the capital – culminating in the iconic parade this weekend.
Transport for London (TfL) has painted underground roundels and benches with the Pride-colours in the lead up to the event.

However, some queer football fans have been frustrated by the Pride in London march, which will clash with England’s match against Sweden in the quarter finals of the World Cup on Saturday.
