Cabaret raises over £400 for The Sussex Beacon

A cabaret night at The Grosvenor in Brighton on 30th June raised a fantastic £413 for local HIV charity, The Sussex Beacon.

Hosted by Krissie Ducann, with performances from David Hill, Neil Jackson, Elaine Evans, Krystal Ball, Maisie Trollette, Spice, Simon Bell and Steve Shappelle. All of the artists performed free of charge, in order to raise money for The Sussex Beacon.

Simon Dowe, Chief Executive at The Sussex Beacon said “This was a fantastic evening of entertainment. I want to thank Krissie who organised the event and the acts who waived their fee to raise money for us. We’re so grateful for their help. All the money raised will go directly towards our vital work supporting people living with HIV in Sussex.”

The Sussex Beacon provides specialist support and care to over 500 people living with HIV a year, offering both inpatient and outpatient services to improve health and promote independence. Those using the charity’s services may be facing serious HIV related illnesses, dealing with mental health issues or struggling to cope with the side effects of new drug regimes. Recently rated ‘outstanding’ by the independent health regulator, The Sussex Beacon provides first class care and support to those in need.
