Pride appeal

CALDERDALE Pride is appealing to upper Calder Valley residents to help boost its coffers.

With less than a month to go until the 2011 festival at Halifax Piece Hall, the group is holding a fundraiser at Bar Place, Crown Street, Hebden Bridge. The event takes place on Friday, April 15, at 7.30pm, with discounted drinks on offer.

All proceeds will go towards funding the festival at the Piece Hall on June 16, which aims to promote understanding and celebration around issues of diversity, sexual orientation and gender among the local community.
