Krissie’s Christmas Crackers fundraising show at the Rottingdean Club last night (December 14), raised £355.15 for Rainbow Fund.
KRYSTAL Ball, Jamie Watson, Kara Van Park, Doctor Woof and Fonda Cox joined Krissie Ducann to deliver a first class night of entertainment. It was especially lovely to hear Jamie Watson singing, making me feel quite nostalgic about the ‘good old days’.
Phil Sherrington, joint owner of The Rottingdean Club, said: “Thanks to everyone for coming and supporting the Rainbow Fun, to everyone who donated prizes for the raffle, to my bar staff and to Justin Zilli who organised the sound.”
Chris Gull, Chair of the Rainbow Fund added: “Many thanks to Krissie for using her annual Christmas show to fundraise for The Rainbow Fund. She is an integral part of our local cabaret scene, who are so generous in their support of our LGBT+ communities here in Brighton and Hove.”
