The Brighton Bear Weekenders staged a successful weekend of events in June bringing hundreds of bears to party in Brighton and spend money in the bars and clubs.
The weekend raised a total of £2,655.12 and along with the totals raised from their Saints and Sinners events at Subline and the pub quiz at the Camelford in March, their grand fundraising total for the last year is £3418.07, all of which is donated directly to the Rainbow Fund.
In addition to this, Lunch Positive raised a terrific £445.56 at the Brighton Bear Weekender picnic in June at Queens Park, which will help to run the lunch club and purchase supplies throughout the rest of the year.
Paul Elgood Chairman of the Rainbow Fund, said: ”We are so grateful to the Brighton Bears Weekender for their support. So far this year they are our second biggest fundraisers after Pride and that reflects the time, effort and energy put in by them. We love working with them, and are delighted that yet again the Brighton Bears Weekender was such a huge success. Thank you to all who supported it.”
Oganiser would like to thank everyone who attended Brighton Bear Weekender events making it such a wonderful fun-filled weekend, and everyone else who supported them along the way, including the event venues. Special thanks to Andy Tull for his donation.
Next year’s event is scheduled for the weekend of 19-21 June, 2015.
