Brighton Pride received an award for Greatest Contribution to Sussex Charity by an organisation at the 2015, Sussex Business Awards staged at the Grand Hotel in Brighton.

These prestigious awards celebrate business excellence across Sussex and are the longest established scheme of its kind in the county, considered by many to be the one to win!

The awards ceremony took place at  The Grand Brighton who won the award for Best Place to Entertain Your Clients, and was hosted by the star of ITV’s The Chase, Paul Sinha.

The Greatest Contribution to Sussex Charity (organisation) award was sponsored by The Argus and collected on behalf of Pride by Billie Lewis, Chair of the Brighton and Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum who organise access issues at Pride and Becky Stevens, Pride’s Operations Director.

Paul Kemp Director of Pride, said: “Dulcie Weaver and I are honoured to have received this award. 2015 was a massive year for Pride, celebrating 25 years of Pride in City. Not only was it one of the biggest celebrations the City has seen, but also brought many communities together to celebrate the diversity of Brighton and Hove.

“Pride only happens with the generous support of local businesses and national brands who sponsor Pride and help towards the costs of staging the biggest single event in our City.

“Thank you so much for this award, hope to see you all in 2016”

Pride is the biggest annual community fundraiser for the Rainbow Fund and takes place 5th-7th August 2016
