Swindon & Wiltshire Pride have announced that Thames Water will be supporting the event this year as Principle Sponsor. This year’s event is being held on Saturday 9 August 2014 in the Town Gardens, Swindon and will be the 7th Pride event held for Swindon & Wiltshire.
Thames Water is committed to engaging positively with the community they serve and have embraced community projects across the supply area and have supported WaterAid as a principal Charity for the last 30 years helping thousands of the world’s poorest people gain access to the very things we all sometimes take for granted ‐ safe water and sanitation.
Kevin Lennon, the Thames Water representative working with Swindon & Wiltshire Pride, said: “With so many of our employees living and working in Swindon, we’re really pleased to be involved in Pride. This year’s event looks to be bigger and better than ever and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
Jo Sharpe, chair of Swindon & Wiltshire Pride said “As an organising committee we are very excited about this year’s event, with even more community support and involvement and now to have corporate support from Thames Water as our Principle supporter is wonderful news, showing a belief in the event and supports the LGBT Community.”

The Family Zone will return for the 2nd year. This year’s boost an even bigger Community Zone and Shopping Zone.
