An Ely-based voluntary group and charity that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people is holding a fundraising event this week.

LGBT+ is hosting a Pride night at Bar-ology on Fore Hill on February 24 from 7pm until 2am.

Christine Whelan, one of the organisers, said: “We would like to see Ely put on the map, and the funds raised from this are going towards a project that we are aiming for which is a Pride event in Ely in 2018.

“We hope this will bring business into the city and improve tourism. Not only will it raise awareness of LGBT but also raise awareness of Ely as a thriving city and a great place to spend time or live.

“All are welcome, whether or not they are LGBT.”
