RMS Pride Week 2021!
Rook Matthews Sayer were very proud to support pride month 2021 and with this we hosted our very own RMS pride week!
The RMS family used the opportunity to educate ourselves and our social media followers on the LGBTQ+ community and the discrimination their members face worldwide.
Additionally, we hosted a range of pride inspired activities to raise money and support akt, a charity who provide safe homes & a better future for LGBTQ+ young people.
We are delighted to announce that our pride activities were a huge success, our branches were decorated beautifully and the RMS family wore their rainbow colours to celebrate pride month 2021!
A very big thank you to Laura’s Lashes & Beauty, Matt Robson Artwork, The Ravensworth Arms & Morrisons Birtley, who all very kindly donated prizes to our raffle. These included a full set of hybrid eyelash extensions worth £45, a gorgeous canvassed cow print, a gift voucher and a filled to the brim hamper. Alongside these fabulous gifts, our staff donated 36 prizes, which without their generosity our raffle wouldn’t have been such a huge success. 24 members of staff were keen to participate in our team marathon and we are unbelievably proud to say that we smashed the target of 26.2 miles and completed 122.71 miles and all within 4 days!
We’d like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to everyone who donated money, raffle prizes, sponsored our marathon participants, hosted bake sales and buffets, paid to wear their rainbow colours and much more! Without your kindness and generosity we wouldn’t have been able to raise a fantastic £1,000 for akt, helping them continue with the amazing work they do, providing safe homes & better futures for LGBTQ+ young people.
We sincerely hope you enjoyed following our RMS Pride Week posts and activities. We can assure you our pride & LGBTQ+ journey has not finished, we will continue to educate ourselves.
We pledge to be inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community. We pledge to stand up against LGBTQ+ discrimination.
Knowledge is the power for change. LGBTQ+, do you hear us? We’re your allies, we support you!
We’d like to wish you all a very happy Pride month 2021!
