Wolds Pride event wins Charitable Status from the Charity Commission for England and Wales
An event due to take place in Pocklington later this year has received Charitable Status from the Charity Commission for England and Wales.
Wolds Pride is now a registered charity!
Wolds Pride was founded by Adam Tipping with the aim of representing, supporting, educating, engaging, and celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community across the region.
It is hoped that the event will take place in Pocklington in August in what will be the first event of its kind for this area featuring a dynamic programme of live music, dance, educational opportunities, workshops, and talks based in and around Pocklington Arts Centre.
Adam said: “I am absolutely over the moon that we have reached such a milestone within our journey as an organisation just six months in!
“We would not be here without the fantastic voluntary help of all those at East Riding Voluntary Action Services and we cannot thank them enough for their phenomenal and continued support.
“Being a registered and recognised charitable incorporated organisation opens up countless more doors to us, allowing us to continue developing and creating fantastic opportunities within the future for our local LGBTQIA+ community.
“Thank you to my team, our partner and supporter organisations, and most importantly to all of you for your continued support.
“We cannot wait to continue our journey with you all throughout 2021 and beyond.”
