Last month marked an extraordinary milestone for The Justin Fashanu Foundation, as we proudly took home an NDA (National Diversity Awards) for our unwavering support in the LGBTQ+ community.
The awards ceremony, held in the magnificent setting of Liverpool's breathtaking cathedral, was a night to remember—one that celebrated not just our achievement but the vibrant tapestry of diversity that makes our world so beautiful.
The honor of receiving this award is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team, who have tirelessly championed the cause of equality and inclusivity.
We're humbled and grateful to be recognized for our efforts in creating a more accepting and supportive environment for the LGBTQ+ community, inspired by the memory of Justin Fashanu, the first openly gay footballer in the UK.
The National Diversity Awards ceremony itself was nothing short of spectacular. Surrounded by remarkable individuals who are making an impact in their own unique ways, we shared in the warmth of a diverse community brought together by shared values of acceptance, kindness, and respect. The evening was filled with delectable food, delightful drinks, and most importantly, beautiful people whose stories and achievements touched our hearts.
We owe our deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported us on this incredible journey. Your unwavering commitment, your tireless efforts, and your belief in the vision of a more inclusive and accepting world have been the driving force behind our success.
As we bask in the glow of this remarkable recognition, we are reminded that the work is far from over. Our dedication to the cause of equality remains resolute, and our promise to support and empower the LGBTQ+ community unwavering. We look forward to the future with renewed vigor and enthusiasm, eager to continue making a difference.
Thank you, once again, for your unyielding support and for standing with us as we work to create a world where everyone, regardless of their background or identity, can find acceptance, love, and belonging. Together, we'll keep making strides toward a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow.
