Stonewall’s Equality Walk Raises £50k

 

Beautiful weather greeted the 504 volunteer walkers who took part in the annual Stonewall Brighton equality 10k walk this weekend.

They say the 504 happy souls managed to raise in excess of £50,000 for the charity’s work.  The route devised by local gay sports group Blags,  followed the path through the city, including the seafront and the gay village area of Kemp Town. 

Coronation Street star Charlie Condou was there to lend a hand and support, along with Brighton regular, TV star Heather Peace.

Laura Doughty, Stonewall’s deputy chief executive, said: “Stonewall’s work can make an even greater difference to the lives of all young people around the country, thanks to the success of this year’s Equality Walk.  Money raised by our supporters at this walk will enable us to send an essential teacher training pack to every primary school in Britain, which will help them make their classes inclusive for children from all families.”

Well done to everyone who walked in Brighton for Stonewall.
