24th April 2014
For immediate release.
Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus is very happy to announce that they have successfully raised nearly £1,000 at their annual Jamboree.
The Jamboree, which takes place outside the Brighton Tavern every year around April time, involves a home-baked cake sale, a tombola and a second-hand book store. It relies on the generosity of its members and supporters through donating their time, effort and baking skills to raise money for charity.
Chris Sarson, a trustee for Brighton Gay Men’s Chorus, said:
“We had an amazing amount of cakes this year so a big thank you to all the wonderful bakers we have in the Chorus and also the many friends of the Chorus who have donated cakes and other items to us this year.”
Charlie Bedson, who is a member for the Chorus and helped with the organisation of the Jamboree, said:
“On top of everything, we would particularly like to thank Eclipse Foods, Raise and the Pelican On Port for their generously proportioned and rather delicious cakes”.
The funds raised will go towards helping the Chorus, a registered charity, in pursuing its charitable activities and objectives.
The Chorus is next performing as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival on 2nd & 3rd May at St. George’s Church in Kemptown with their latest show “Nautical But Nice”. Tickets and more information are available on their website www.brightongmc.org
