These kinds of events are not cheap to run and by keeping our event fully FREE as well as accessible as possible to all, there are costs associated with this. We also do not either condone the use of commercial sponsors or other entities that do not care for the LGBTQIA+ community that we organize this event for.
We rely on around 90% of our income coming from donations from the public to keep the event going, which we know is a big ask, but with us, you can be safe in the knowledge that you know where your donations have gone.
We can say this as we are one of the only Pride events in the UK that fully publish all of our accounts on a yearly basis at our public AGM meetings and also on our website.
NO excuses, no rubbish, just honesty and transparency as it should be when ANYONE is asking for your hard-earned money. So not only will donors always know how much we have spent, but also what we have spent it on. We are also all volunteers and no one at People's Pride Hampshire is paid a wage at all.
Whilst we appreciate not everyone is in a position to financially assist us in raising this money, if you are able to help no matter how small, we would appreciate your help. You can donate via a manner of simple ways as below.
You can donate directly to our bank account using our bank details which are as follows, this costs nothing extra to you or us at all.

If you are interested in becoming an event sponsor in return you will be featured in our event programme, have your business mentioned at the event, and can even have a banner and a FREE stall space too. We would like to make it clear that we only allow sponsors who are independent traders or local businesses and you must meet our aims and be supportive of the aims of the LGBTQIA+ community.
With us, you will always know that we have used the money you donate ONLY for the purpose of funding our events and nothing else. No one at People's Pride UK is paid a wage whatsoever.
Thank you from the entire LGBTQIA+ community and the committee at People's Pride, we appreciate every penny.
