Fundraising

Reading Pride is committed to remaining a free event to all, but as we receive minimal public funding, this is no easy task. We are eternally grateful to our generous sponsors and donors who assist with fundraising for our event throughout the year. Without this help, we wouldn't be able to stage our annual festival.
