Staff and volunteers from HIV and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) will be mingling with all manner of policemen, doctors, and sailors at a special event at The Hart Pub in Eastbourne on June 29.

A team from the charity’s centre in East Sussex will be attending The Hart’s ‘uniform’ themed night to raise awareness of HIV and sexual health issues and services available locally

The themed party, which is free to attend, starts at 9pm on Saturday, June 29 and will feature a live show from resident drag queen Fonda Cox as well as a selection of music to fill the dance floor. THT staff and volunteers will be on hand throughout the evening, distributing safer sex resources and condoms and answering any questions about contraception, sexual health and getting help locally.

Daniel Murray, Acting Centre Manager for Terrence Higgins Trust in Eastbourne, said:

”Getting out and about in the community is crucial in the effort to raise awareness and promote better sexual health, particularly among those groups at risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. It’s great to chat to people in an informal and fun environment and we are very grateful to The Hart for giving us this fantastic opportunity to meet the crowd. We look forward to getting suited and booted for what promises to be a great night out!”
