The annual Brighton Bear Christmas Quiz organised by Brighton Bear Weekend at the Camelford Arms raises £278.73 for Rainbow Fund.
THE Camelford was so busy for the annual Christmas quiz people were perched on the bar and sat in the Moroccan garden out the back to play. This year £278.73 was raised for The Rainbow Fund who give grants to local LGBT/HIV community groups who deliver effective frontline services to LGBT+ people in the city.
The money raised from the quiz and the raffle was boosted by a personal donation by Alistair Mackinnon-Musson, the owner of the Camelford of £50. The winning team just missed out on the £300 cash prize, but everybody went home with chocolate bars from the night.
Graham Munday, Chair of Brighton Bear Weekend, said: “The Camelford Arms has a wonderful atmosphere at Christmas time and is the perfect place for hosting our quiz. Thanks go to Ben and Tom for running a smooth night and Alistair for his generosity.
“Everyone at Brighton Bear Weekend team would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to the Camelford manager, Jay Hopkins, who is leaving the Camelford Arms after several years. His good nature, genuine warmth and support over the years have made holding Brighton Bear Weekend and other events at the Camelford a smooth, hassle-free process. We all wish him great success in his new career.”
