As Pride Month draws to a close, we’re excited to announce a new partnership with the Albert Kennedy Trust, known as akt. akt is an organisation that supports LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 in the UK who are facing or experiencing homelessness, or living in a hostile environment. We were drawn to work with akt as their mission aligns with our goal of empowering young people to thrive, and our commitment to support young people from marginalised communities all year round.
Our super-talented Student Beans design team have collaborated with akt to create a unique and inspiring LGBTQ+-themed print, which is now available to purchase via akt’s online store. Students will have access to a 20% discount on the print, which will be promoted across all Student Beans marketing channels. Proceeds will support akt’s Room For Love campaign, and priced at £10, each purchase can cover breakfast and a hot and nutritious lunch and dinner for a young person.
Plus, our collaboration with akt doesn’t stop there. Throughout June, some brave Student Beans employees have been taking part in a 100k running challenge, raising money for akt in the process. You can donate to support the team and the cause here. We’ve also been educating ourselves about the issues faced by young LGBTQ+ people and how we can help thanks to an internal presentation and Q&A session from akt.
