WHEN Shaun Dellenty the founder of IFA called into a recent rehearsal at St Andrew’s church in Hove, Actually Gay Men’s Chorus were on hand to present him with a cheque for £1408.40.

All the money raised through chorus performances and their generous audiences, will support the important work that IFA does, tackling homophobic, transphobic and biphobic bullying and language in schools.

The money is already earmarked and will be used to benefit young people and educators throughout the country, as IFA takes a brand new anti-LGBT bullying project on tour.

Actually have been working with Shaun Dellenty and IFA over the last 12 months and Chorus members are pleased to be continuing this support over the coming year.

Shaun was awarded Highly Commended at the Excellence In Diversity Awards in 2014, for challenging LGBT bullying.

He said: “IFA is incredibly honored and grateful to be partnered with the inspirational Actually Chorus again this year. The funds raised through Actually’s concert performances will help fund IFA’s anti-LGBT bullying theatre in eduction tour, delivering vital messages about difference, diversity and acceptance to whole school communities.”
