Allison Homes donates £1,500 to LGBTQ+ charities to celebrate Pride Month

This Pride Month (June), we have proudly donated a total of £1,500 to three LGBTQ+ charities, one for each of our regions, and put Pride flags up at all our developments.

Lincoln Pride in our East region, Sunrise Diversity in the South West and Leicester LGBT Centre within our East Midlands region each received a donation of £500, with our contribution to Sunrise Diversity going towards the running of Bideford Pride.

This is the third year in a row we have got involved with Pride Month by supporting LGBTQ+ charities, taking our total donation amount to £5,000.

John Anderson, CEO of Allison Group, said: “We are extremely proud to be honouring Pride Month by donating £500 each to Lincoln Pride, Sunrise Diversity and Leicester LGBT Centre. 

“At Allison Homes, we are passionate about fostering a supportive workplace where our employees can thrive and feel free to express themselves, and are delighted to have extended this passion to the communities we operate in.”
