On Saturday 26th November, local HIV charity The Sussex Beacon will be fundraising at the Brighton & Hove Albion home match against Fulham, having been chosen as one of the club’s charity partners this year.
Staff and volunteers from The Sussex Beacon will be out in force on match day collecting donations from football fans and raising awareness of both HIV and the charity.
Simon Dowe, CEO of The Sussex Beacon said, “We’re delighted to have the support of the club and can’t wait to get out there on match day. All the money raised by the bucket collection will go directly towards helping people living with HIV, so if you’re at the game, please look out for us in our bright pink tabards and donate if you can. Football fans small change can make a big difference.”
Paul Barber, Brighton & Hove Albion Chief Executive, added, “As a club we are proud to support The Sussex Beacon as one of our two official charity partners, and Saturday’s game will hopefully raise some much-needed funds for the tremendous work they do across the county. I would encourage our fans to give generously, to what is an incredibly good cause.”
