Edinburgh based Italian food extraordinaires, Civerinos are holding a charity Volleyball match for local businesses during Porty Pride 2022, with team entry fees being donated to LGBT Youth Scotland. Head of Operations Mark De'Mar talks about using their platform to drive the message of community and inclusiveness while raising much needed funds for LGBT Youth Scotland. Come along on Sunday, 19th June from 11.30am to cheer the teams on!
We were asked to join in with Pride celebrations this year by supporting Porty Pride: A community Pride event based in the Portobello neighbourhood of Edinburgh. Our site in Portobello is right on the beach so what better way to get involved with the Pride celebrations than having a beach volleyball event and getting a bunch of other businesses down for the bants and raise some money for an awesome cause.
At Civerinos we are committed all year round to our LGBTQIA+ communities. Whether that is creating a safe and inclusive space for our teams or helping to support such fine organisations like LGBT Youth Scotland. We also work extensively with youth support charities and youth focused organisations such as IYS (Intercultural Youth Scotland) and Towerbank Primary school to name a couple.
It made sense, during pride more than ever to find an organisation that worked both with LGBTQIA+ community and young people. I’m so proud that we can use Civerinos as a platform to really help drive the message of community and inclusiveness throughout the city and work with LGBT Youth Scotland to continue to make Scotland the best place to grow up LGBTI.
