Good Energy supports Chippenham Pride 

By Ben Carey on 16 February, 2024

This year’s Chippenham Pride will be supported by one of the town’s most prominent businesses.

Following the huge success of last year’s inaugural event, renewable electricity company Good Energy is sponsoring the main stage hosting the headline acts. 

In 2023 thousands of people attended Chippenham Pride at Island Park to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion.  

Taking place on Saturday 15th June, this year’s event is expanding to include the much larger space of Monkton Park near the Good Energy office. It will feature a colourful walk through the town centre together with ten hours of main stage entertainment, as well as cabaret and education stages, a bar, and a wide range of stalls offering food and drinks. 

Good Energy is a member of Inclusive Employers and has been shortlisted for several awards in recognition of its positive culture. It has its own ‘inclusion champions’, a team of staff from different departments who volunteer their time to promote a welcoming and supportive working environment. 

Inclusion Champions Co-Chair at Good Energy, Mair Horscroft, said, “We are proud to support such an important event in the town’s calendar and hope it will be a tremendous success. 

“We’re committed to building a business that attracts and retains talented people from all walks of life and reflects modern society. This means valuing people’s differences and recognising the strength that they give us, allowing them to bring their true selves to work. 

“We look forward to working with the organisers to celebrate everyone in our community – and encourage other local businesses to lend their support too.” 

Chippenham Pride Founder and Chair, Penny MacDivitt, added, “It’s great to welcome Good Energy as our first headline sponsor for 2024. 

“Last year’s event exceeded all expectations and this year we want it to be even bigger and better. 

“There are still plenty of opportunities for local businesses to sponsor different areas of the festival, and we would love to welcome more volunteers and donations. Together, we can showcase why Chippenham is such a great place to live, work and visit.”
