Christmas Raffle raises over £1,900

Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus is overjoyed to announce that our Christmas Raffle has raised the amazing sum of £1,936.61.

The prizes were either donated or heavily subsidised by local businesses, to whom Brighton GMC is hugely grateful. Those businesses include The Co-Op, Marks & Spencer, The Treatment Rooms, The Alvia Hotel, Bill’s, Choccywoccydoodah, The Grand Hotel Spa, Harry Ramsden’s and Costa Coffee. There were 14 prizes in total, and the Grand Prize Draw was held on the evening of Tuesday 17th December at The Brighton Tavern. The list of winners is:

There is currently one prize which is unclaimed as the ticket stub only had a partial phone number. This is the M&S Candle hamper won by Michael Kerry. We have tried to trace him via Facebook, but if you know him, please ask him to get in touch!

Brighton GMC would like to thank everyone involved with the Raffle, especially those who gave us their time to sell the tickets at the Pull A Cracker concert at the Brighton Dome on 7th December.
