Founders Jon and Mat said: “We are thrilled that we have been nominated for a national diversity award, particularly as it recognises Proud2Be as a community organisation. We have spent the last five years working alongside our wonderfully diverse and vibrant community and it has been a pleasure to see so many people come together and support one another in the face of adversity. Thank you to all who have voted for us and to all those who continue to support us!”
