Davina Sparkles for Sport Relief

Besi Besemar March 6, 2014

Local Brighton drag queens proved sparkling sequins and sport are perfect partners when they took to the seafront for their own Sainbsbury’s Sport Relief Mile.

Sport relief Brighton Cabaret Queens running a mile

It was hand bags at dawn as six drag queens from Adonis Cabaret donned headbands, hitched up their frocks and put their best heels forward in a fight to the finish line.

The performers came from far and wide. Coco Verdose flew in from Columbia and donned a leather corset to keep her running upright, but in the end the victor was Ivy Hilton who was full of grace as she crossed the finish line at Dukes Mound.

Ivy said: “I came dressed for the occasion; it was all down to the exceptional killer heeled running boots. I’m not normally much of an athlete, but I’m always up for getting involved with a good cause and it seems I will do anything to win!”

The purpose of the run was to encourgage more people in Brighton to sign up for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile.

Local favourite Davina Sparkle, said: “If we queens can get involved and run for Sport Relief anyone can. It’s been a great laugh and I hope it encourages lots of people to sign up for the very worthy cause. Sport Relief is all about everyone getting active and having fun, whilst helping others. There are charities right here in Brighton that have benefitted from money raised through the events and I hope this year is even bigger and better!”

As well as getting involved in the Mile the bejewelled beauties and Adonis Cabaret have also donated £1,000 to Sport Relief from a weekly raffle held by Adonis Cabaret.

Davina said: “Sport Relief was an obvious choice!”

Sport Relief takes place from March 21 – 23 and for the first time ever the public can run, swim or cycle in the brand new Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games.
