Mark Banfield Project Manager at Terrence Higgins Trust, said:
Brent is a fantastic place to be and work in now, with a such a diverse depth of cultures living together Brent truly demonstrates and encompasses the values of tolerance, community and unity; it in these values that we are united in and our acceptance of others and is something we should all feel proud to be a part of. ‘Pride is a huge celebration for the Brent and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to shine. We want everyone to enjoy a safe and happy Pride, so we would encourage people to drop by our Terrence Higgins Trust stalls to get the resources they need – whether it’s condoms, information about local testing services, or just to ask a question about HIV or sexual health.”
