The Rainbow Fund LGBT+ Community Grants presentation evening this year takes place at The Hilton Brighton Metropole on Monday, October 15 starting at 7pm.
THE Independent Grants Panel are currently considering a record 23 grant applications from LGBT+/HIV groups and organisation that provide effective front line services to LGBT+ people in Brighton and Hove.
The successful groups will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Brighton Hilton Metropole hosted by comedienne and Rainbow Fund Patron Zoe Lyons and entertainer Stephen Richards aka Lola Lasagne.
In the past just groups receiving the grants were invited to the ceremony, but this year due to the generosity of the Hilton Brighton Metropole, there is room for more!
So if you’d like to celebrate the efforts of the Fundraisers in our LGBT+ communities who make these grants possible, hear about the projects that will be funded this year, and celebrate those in our communities, especially volunteers, who work so hard to deliver the projects and benefit so many of us, let us know.
The Hilton Metropole generously provide the venue free of charge, provide complimentary hot food and there will be a pay bar for drinks.
If you’d like to be on the guest list please contact the Rainbow Fund via the “contact us” button on the website at www.rainbow-fund.org.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, and people will be contacted on Wednesday, October 10 to let them know if they are on the VIP list.
Chair of the Rainbow Fund Chris Gull, said: “Once again we’re delighted to invite our LGBT+ communities to join us to acknowledge and celebrate the hard work of fundraisers, who trust The Rainbow Fund to distribute those funds, and the LGBT+ and HIV projects that receive the grants and make real differences to the lives of so many in the city. This is also a chance for our communities to show our gratitude to the many volunteers who give freely of their time and talent to make these projects work.
In the safe hands of our Patron, Zoe Lyons, and our constant supporter, Lola Lasagne, we look forward to another joyous evening.”
