On Sunday 12th June 2016 organisations from across Brighton’s LGBT community came together for the Golden Handbags Awards. The awards ceremony, held annually at the Hilton Metropole, seeks to recognise those people and organisations that work tirelessly to make Brighton’s LGBT scene vibrant, exciting and unique. Voting for the awards took place throughout April and May.
The Sussex Beacon won the Golden Handbag Award for Brighton’s favourite HIV charity.
Simon Dowe, Chief Executive at The Sussex Beacon says ‘It is a great honour to be awarded the Golden Handbag and be seen as Brighton’s favourite HIV charity. The award recognises the hard work and dedication of all our staff and volunteers who work to support people living with HIV.’
