Sparkle – The National Transgender Charity are given JUST A BALL GAME? award 2023.
JUST A BALL GAME? have announced that this year’s LGBT+ inclusion and visibility award has been given to SPARKLE- THE NATIONAL TRANSGENDER CHARITY.
Sparkle have been fighting inequality and discrimination for almost two decades now. And, they pride themselves with one of their core values being that their events remain free to attend and are accessible to everyone.
JBG? say: “We first joined forces with Sparkle 3 years ago and have supported as much of their work as we could since then in the form of event days and helping out with providing resources for community members who are active and campaigning.
In the past year we have seen the Manchester based charity do their upmost to continue the workload they have before them through many difficult, challenging and forever changing circumstances.”
“The young volunteers have given their all to help others despite attempts from some UK government ministers wanting to overhaul parts of the Equality Act, and worrying increases of hate crimes both online and directed personally at people.”
On receiving the silver salver, the team at Sparkle - The National Transgender Charity, say they are delighted to have won the 2023 Just A Ball Game? Award!
“We are pleased to be acknowledged for our community passion and volunteer-led mission to the trans community.”
One of our new Key Volunteers, Chlo (they/them) said: “It’s so easy to get lost in the work we do. It never feels enough. This award meant so much to myself and the team to see the work we are doing has so much impact! Thank you for recognising us, we can’t wait to show you what we’ve got planned for 2024!”
