Chris Gull, chair of the Rainbow Fund, said: “Without the continued support of local LGBT+ businesses, we would not be able to continue supporting LGBT+ people in Brighton & Hove. Many thanks to Chris and Rupert for handing over their birthdays as a fundraiser to benefit the Rainbow Fund. A very special thank you to all the staff at Charles Street who worked their socks off all evening, the many, many artists who donated their services on the evening and to the volunteers from the Brighton and Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum who gave up their evening to shake the collection buckets.”
