This Saturday, 1 August 2015, will see RCN regional staff joining more than 150,000 participants and spectators at this year’s Brighton & Hove Pride Parade and Festival in Preston Park, Brighton.

The RCN will be running a stand on the festival site all day from 9am where they will be promoting an understanding of diversity both within the nursing profession and towards the people nurses serve.

Also, throughout the day members of the public will be able to chat to the RCN staff about the work of the RCN as well as getting advice on general health & wellbeing.

RCN Senior Regional Officer Sue Huggins said:

“This is our 5th year at Pride and we are immensely proud to continue with our support of this event. We look forward to meeting the public as well as RCN members on what will be a very enjoyable day.

“The RCN is a champion of diversity, equality, human rights and liberty, all of which are fundamental to nursing care and which help to create an inclusive healthcare environment where everyone can feel valued.”

Money is also being raised for the RCN Foundation. This is an independent charity supporting nurses to improve the health and wellbeing of the public.

So, if you are going to the festival on Saturday please pop along and say hello and you may even receive some sweets!
