Rainbow JCB Marks Beginning of £2.4m Rebuild for Europe’s First LGBT+ Centre in Manchester

Powering up a rainbow JCB digger, VIPs including the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham MP, and the Lord Lieutenant of Greater Manchester Mr Warren J Smith KStJ JP Dlitt LLD, donned hard hats and brightly coloured high vis jackets to help The Proud Trust charity launch its Christmas ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign.

The event marked the start of building works for a new £2.4million development for LGBT+ people in the North West that will replace the current centre on Sidney Street in Manchester, which, having served the community for over 30 years, is no longer fit for purpose.

The Proud Trust (www.theproudtrust.org) is calling on both individuals and corporate supporters to consider ‘buying a brick’ this Christmas as an alternative gift for loved ones and help to raise the final £150,000 needed for the new premises.

Donations of £100 for individuals, or £1000 for corporates, can be made via the charity’s website: www.theproudtrust.org/shop/buy-a-brick. All supporters receive a certificate and will have their names recognised with thanks in the new centre.

The Rainbow JCB Digger was provided by Building Equalities, the LGBT+ Staff Group across the construction industry, which comprises of representatives from consultants, engineers, professional institutions, developers and contractors who are passionate about working together and harnessing their collective power to drive LGBT+ inclusion across the construction industry.
