An incredible £1,500 raised for Allsorts Youth Project during Football v Homophobia

Graham Robson May 13, 2024

Allsorts Youth Project, which aims to support and empower young people under 26 who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or unsure (LGBTU) of their sexual orientation, took part in local women’s football team, Brighton & Hove Seagals FC’s, first ‘Super Sixes’ fundraising event earlier in 2024. The event was hosted as part of the club’s Football v Homophobia month of action to raise awareness for LGBTQ+ people in sport, and to challenge homophobia.

As well as raising funds in aid of the project with the help of their partners and supporter, Seagals FC invited Allsorts to submit a team who came joint first place.

Through raffle ticket sales and donations, the Seagals raised an incredible £1,500 in aid of the project and the event was a wholesome evening and a roaring success.
