One colourful and inspiring event is set for Cumbria in a few months' time – and you can help support it.

Organisers of Cumbria Pride 2021 can't wait to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community this September, and have set up plenty of ways for the community to show its support.

The Rainbow Lottery, costing just £1 per ticket, is held each week, with every ticket sold equating to 50p for the Pride team – and the possibility of winning £25,000 for players.

Online shopping can also offer a helping hand, as shoppers can visit EasyFundraising, or Amazon Smile, and select Cumbria LGBT Pride as their chosen charity.

Direct donations can also be made via PayPal – more details can be found at Cumbria Pride's website – or by texting CUMBRIAPRIDE1 to 70450. Texts cost standard rate, plus £1.

Cumbria Pride is set to take place on September 25 at Carlisle Castle.
