Graham Robson May 5, 2021

Worthing Pride has recognised the hard work and dedication of local NHS staff by donating 200 free tickets to this year’s annual LGBTQ+ event, which is planned to take place at Beach House Grounds in Worthing on Saturday, July 10 with a day packed full of entertainment and fun for the whole community.

This past year we have seen unprecedented times and changes never seen or faced before but throughout the staff of the NHS have gone above and beyond in a selfless act of support, care, empathy and compassion.

Dame Marianne Griffiths, Chief Executive of University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust, said: “I am delighted to accept these tickets on behalf of our newly merged organisation. Inclusion is one of our key values as an organisation and we are proud to support our LGBTQ+ communities and local Pride events.

“We will ensure the tickets are given to staff who have actively engaged with the inclusion agenda and/or have just gone the extra mile in supporting either our patients or their colleagues in this incredibly challenging year.

“Thank you to everyone involved in organising the Pride event, including Chair of our LGBTQ+ Network, Sarah Kahn.”

The event directors of Worthing Pride added “We wanted to give something back to the hard working team of people at the local NHS, and give them something to look forward to and enjoy. We all couldn’t have got through recent times without the love shown by those amazing people, so it’s just a small gesture from us, and a light at the end of the rainbow.”
