Mr Brighton Bear winner Gavin Bennett and runner-up Rhykar Bauer have both donated their winnings (a total of £130) to the Brighton Rainbow Fund.
Graham Munday, Chair of Brighton Bear Weekend, said: “In these challenging times, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of our contestants, showing their support of our community by donating to the Brighton Rainbow Fund. This is yet another virtue that we prize in our Mr Brighton Bear winners.”
The Brighton Rainbow Fund provides grants to local LGBTQ+ community groups and HIV/Aids charities, to support frontline services.
