We have chosen the SAYiT charity because we wanted to show our support for Pride Month within our local community. SAYiT is a charity that has been operating in Sheffield since 1999, focusing on transforming the lives of LGBTQ+ young people up to the age of 25. They do this through supportive group work, youth action, education and influence. SAYiT’s vision is “to create an inclusive safe environment where the sexual, emotional and mental wellbeing needs of LGBTQ+ young people are supported, empowering them to achieve their best life potential.” Alongside supporting young people, SAYiT also offer training and events on LGBTQ+ awareness.

What are Eclipse Magnetics doing to support SAYiT?


Internally, we are hosting an employee barbecue on Friday 14th June. At the BBQ, there will be Pride-themed decorations and employees are encouraged to wear bright colours in celebration of Pride Month. We are also having a cake bake, which will involve employees taking part in a baking challenge to make rainbow cakes or other rainbow themed goodies. These cakes will then be available in exchange of donations in order to raise funds for our chosen charity.


A message from our Group MD:


Group Managing Director, Steve McAllorum, said “June is Pride month, a time when the LGBTQ+ community celebrate diversity and equality. It’s a time to raise awareness, promotion of acceptance, and support the rights of the community. We’re proud to stand with the LGBTQ+ community, not just during Pride month, but every day of the year. Together, let's celebrate diversity, promote inclusivity, and create a more accepting world.”


We are proud to support a charity within our local community and encourage everyone to celebrate Pride, not just during the month of June, but all year long.
