After thirteen years’ as a Trustee of The Sussex Beacon, Romany Mark Bruce has stepped down as a Trustee and Vice Chair of the Board following the end of his term of office.

Romany said ‘’It has been a privilege to be a trustee for so many years.

I would in particular like to thank Simon Dowe, Chief Executive for his dedication and inspirational leadership over the last four years”

Simon Dowe CEO The Sussex Beacon says “I would like to thank Romany for his hard work, support and commitment over the years to The Sussex Beacon. He has contributed to the development of The Beacon and played a key role in raising awareness of the organisation and HIV in Brighton. Romany’s enthusiasm and energy will be missed and it is good to know that he will still be a supporter of the charity.”

The local sculptor and artist is looking forward to spending more time on his art work and undertaking exhibitions in America, Australia and Portugal.

On Saturday 6 of August, staff and volunteers of The Sussex Beacon came together to support Brighton Pride and the local community. 

This years float was themed around the Halloween Horror Show – A Spectacular Circus of Thrills, our fundraising ball that is due to take place on October 28, and features none other than the delectable Duncan James! You can find more details here

We had an astonishing response from the crowd as we traveled through the city. It was incredibly warming to see just how many of you support the work we do here at The Sussex Beacon.

We had a fantastic day that wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our staff and volunteers, we thank you immensely.
