Staff from across The Calico Group joined in the fun at this year’s Blackpool Pride.
Blackpool Pride is an annual celebration of the town’s LGBT+ community, with a parade, support from local organisations, and a range of entertainment from the Tower Festival Headland.
This was the third time The Calico Group has taken part in the event and, once again, they joined the parade along the promenade.
The Calico Group is passionate about supporting the LGBT+ community, and has recently launched “This Is Me”, a group which provides a safe space for LGBT+ staff to share their experiences, and to support each other wherever necessary.
The group has had a big impact across The Calico Group, opening up important conversations and increasing the visibility of LGBT+ staff.
Carmel Roberts, Inclusivity Champion for The Calico Group, said:
“We all had an amazing time at Blackpool Pride. As always, it was really welcoming, and has an incredible atmosphere.
“It’s really important to us to show that our LGBT+ staff and customers are valued, and there’s no better way to do that than to join the festivities at Pride.”
