Stonewall’s eighth annual Brighton Equality Walk on Sunday 1 May, supported by American Express, raised over £50,000 for the lesbian, gay and bisexual equality charity. A record breaking 504 walkers basked in the Sunday sunshine joining Coronation Street star Charlie Condou, Lip Service’s Heather Peace, local MP Simon Kirby and Deputy Chief Constable of Sussex Police Giles York on the 10k Walk.

Following a route set by BLAGSS (Brighton Lesbian and Gay Sports Society), Walkers headed along the sea-front, through Brighton’s gay village and finished at Brighton’s Honey (club) for the post walk party and prize giving.

‘Stonewall’s work can make an even greater difference to the lives of all young people around the country, thanks to the success of this year’s Equality Walk,’ said Laura Doughty, Stonewall’s Deputy Chief Executive. ‘Money raised by our supporters at this walk will enable us to send an essential teacher training pack to every primary school in Britain, which will help them make their classes inclusive for children from all families.’
