After holding the first pride event in their town, a committee is ready to fundraise to make next year’s bigger and better.

The team behind Dereham Does Pride has announced the first of its fundraising events in order to raise money for Pride 2024.

The first event is a quiz, due to be held at The Kings Head Hotel in Dereham at 7pm on October 4, the same venue which hosted last year’s debut.

It will be hosted by Benjamin Greentree, committee secretary, who said: “We are holding various events between now and next summer to raise funds for Pride 2024.

"The reaction from this year’s event was overwhelmingly positive and by supporting these smaller fundraising nights, the community can ensure that next year’s event will be even more sublime.”

With various smaller fundraising nights taking place on a monthly basis, following up this quiz night will be a karaoke night in November.

“We hope that by diversifying these fundraising events we can appeal to all walks of life in the town,” he added.
