Crowdfunding appeal after £5,000 Coventry Pride shortfall

Trustees of Coventry Pride have launched a crowdfunding appeal due to a £5,000 shortfall following the 2019 event.                                             

In a recent announcement on the Coventry Pride website, organisers said that, despite budget cuts and at times heavy rain, they’d still managed to stage a ‘great Pride’ thanks to ‘the goodwill of the fantastic acts and supporters’.                                         

The statement continued with the worrying news that the current position wasn’t sustainable without a cash injection. It further reported that a crowdfunding appeal had been launched to enable future Pride festivals in Coventry to remain free. 


Coventry Pride is a registered charity.
