Bill Puddicombe, CEO of The Sussex Beacon said: “We are delighted to be one of the chosen charities for the fantastic Pull A Cracker show. The Sussex Beacon is here for people whose lives are made challenging by HIV every day. We work with people who have physical and mental health needs, as well as social problems like loneliness and isolation. The people who use our services tell us that without us, there would be nowhere else for them to go. We are so grateful for the support we have received over the years from The Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus. It makes a real difference to our services.”
