There wasn’t a spare table in the Camelford Arms on Thursday, December 22 as the Brighton Bear Annual Christmas quiz started for many an extended holiday period.

A total of £258.35 was raised for The Rainbow Fund who gives grants to local community groups and HIV/AIDS charities.

Sadly the winning team The Fantastic 4 Skins missed out on all five main prizes include the £300 cash prize and walked away with the tin of mushy peas.

Graham Munday Chair of Brighton Bear, said: “We are always delighted to see so many enjoy the quiz and delight in the atmosphere of The Camelford Arms. Thanks to quiz mater Dale Drury and all the Camelford staff team who were busy all night serving food and drinks.

“Thanks also to all the people who donated raffle prizes including Prowler, New Steine Hotel, Brighton Bier, Komedia, Amsterdam Bar, BRUT and Brit Bear, without their help we would not raise so much. The biggest thank you goes to the people who came out and supported us on the night, put money in our buckets and filled our shakers. Thank you.”

The next Brighton Bear event is Black Valentine on February 12 where Brighton Bear will be teaming up with Leathermen South and Subline to give you a whole weekend of pleasure.

The Rainbow Fund give grants to local LGBT/HIV organisations in Brighton & Hove, who provide effective front line services to LGBT people in the city.
