This LGBTQ+ History Month, we celebrated and educated our team through an eye-opening session with AKT.

AKT are an amazing charity that helps provide safe homes, mentoring, training, advocacy and support to young people who are homeless or living in a hostile environment after coming out.

Sadly, for many LGBTQ+ young people, there is simply no safe place to call home – many have experienced rejection, abuse and violence.

Some of our amazing team (Becca, Bix, Briony, Cheryl, George, Helen, Joe, Lizon, Lorcan & Marcia) took part in a challenge to help raise money for a ‘Rainbow Starter Pack’ by running, walking and even roller-skating one mile every hour – for 12 hours!!

If you want to check out how we got on, head over to our highlights section on Instagram here.

We really felt the love and support on the day and managed to raise £1,384.57 + £277.25 in Gift Aid!

We are so proud of our team, and so grateful for all your donations – Thank you!
