Our Morrisons LGBT+ Network
Pride Month is an important time for celebration and focusing our minds on supporting LGBT+ colleagues and customers, and the challenges they face. But this is something we're passionate about all year round. Our LGBT+ Network at Morrisons helps us to:
All this and more helps us to celebrate Pride all year round.
How we've helped...
We're passionate about being a part of Pride Month with our colleagues, customers and communities. It's an important time to focus on celebrating the LGBTQ+ community and raising awareness of the issues they face. In particular, this year we've partnered with akt to help provide safe homes and support for young LGBTQ+ people by donating £15,000 from our Pride range, having also donated £10,000 from our Pride at Valentine's range and £12,500 from our Homelessness Appeal at Christmas.
Keep scrolling to check out this year's Pride range. Community Champions across our stores and sites will also be making donations to local LGBTQ+ charities and community groups. We've also invited all our colleagues to host their own 'Pride at Morrisons' event earlier this month as a dedicated opportunity to celebrate with colleagues and customers.
But we know it's important we continue this support throughout the year. Our Community Champions will help local Pride event organisers with fundraising and donations of products - we also sponsor the Pride Festival in our home city of Bradford. The Morrisons Foundation also welcomes grant applications from LGBTQ+ charities.
Look out for Pride celebrations across our 500 stores! Keep your eyes peeled as we share photos of what we've been getting up to over the month of June. In the meantime take a look at our colleagues from the West Midlands celebrating Birmingham Pride 2021. It was fantastic to celebrate Pride with our customers and communities.
This year's Pride range includes gender-neutral t-shirts, rainbow sweet treats, flowers, and party items. Take a look at some of our range below.
