PREVIOUSLY ALLOCATED TO DELIVER CANCELLED PRIDE IN LIVERPOOL FESTIVAL NOW REDIRECTED TO A COMMUNITY FUND, SUPPORTED BY BARCLAYS.

LCR Pride Foundation has today opened applications for a £20,000 Community Fund, for projects that support the LGBT+ community in the Liverpool City Region.

The announcement comes as the organisation responsible for delivering Pride in Liverpool and the annual March with Pride, confirms the cancellation of the 2020 event, following its postponement earlier in the year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The first tranche of funding, supported by Barclays, comes from reserves initially allocated to deliver the city region’s Pride weekend celebrations. The funding will be separated in three separate funds, a General Fund, Film Fund and an Inclusive Physical Activity and Sport Fund.

Applications close 3rd August.
