Manchester Pride’s latest sponsor has been confirmed as Cheshire Oaks, the UK’s largest designer outlet.
Cheshire Oaks join Selfridges, Barefoot Wines, and Unite the Union as sponsors of Manchester’s annual lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) festival.
Shaun Rhodes, marketing manager of Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, said: “We’re delighted to sponsor Manchester Pride again and are extremely proud that 2010 marks our third year of support for the festival. Our association with Pride provides us with the perfect opportunity to generate awareness of the Cheshire Oaks brand to a key target customer within the North West – Stylish, brand conscious with a love for great shopping.”
Jackie Crozier, festival director of Manchester Pride, said: “Our sponsors are extremely important to us. Without them we wouldn’t raise as much money as we do for LGBT and HIV communities each year. We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Cheshire Oaks back for the third consecutive year- their ongoing support has been fantastic.”
Manchester Pride 2010 takes place from Friday 20 – Monday 30 August. For more information, visit: www.manchesterpride.com
