SIMON, an avid runner and charity fundraiser, has nominated¬†the Sussex Beacon to be his chosen charity for the event, with all the team at Nice ‘n’ Naughty getting behind him.

Nice ‘n’ Naughty, located at 32 St James Street, is a¬†premier retailer of adult products and supports a number of¬†charities nationwide.

Asked why he was supporting Sussex Beacon, Simon, said:¬†‚ÄúNice ‘n’ Naughty has always been a keen supporter of charities local to our 11 Stores throughout the UK. In Brighton, this year we are again recognising the valuable work the Sussex Beacon does in Brighton and want to show our support‚ÄĚ.¬†

Simon last competed in the Brighton Marathon in June 2012, raising over £500 for The Sussex Beacon, and beating his personal best time in the process.

This year all 11 nationwide¬†Nice ‘n’ Naughty stores, together with their Web Team, will be supporting Simon’s fundraising run and, to start the fundraising, Simon has made a ¬£50 donation.

The Nice ‘n’ Naughty team are all placing bets¬†on¬†Simon’s finishing time, knowing that he is aiming for another personal best, and all proceeds will be¬†going to the Sussex Beacon.

Philip Price, Nice ‘n’ Naughty Manager in Brighton, said: ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs going to be an amazing weekend for the Brighton store. Not only will Simon be here to run the Half Marathon, but on the 21st he will be an honoured guest at my wedding.‚ÄĚ

Philip has been part of the Nice’n’Naughty family for over 9 years, so having Simon there to celebrate with him is the icing on the cake for Philip and his partner James. When Simon completed the 2012 full Marathon, Philip was at the finish line in full drag to boost funds for the charity. This year he will have to pass on the opportunity, as he may be somewhat busy!

Philip and the team at the Brighton store are inviting the local community to also get involved¬†by popping into the¬†store at 32 St. James Street and¬†betting¬†just¬†¬£1 on Simon’s finishing time.¬†The closest time will receive a free goody bag courtesy of Nice ‘n’ Naughty.
