Brighton Bear Weekend team up with Lunch Positive to provide food at this years Bear-B-Que in Dorset Gardens on June 18 between 1-5pm – as part of this years Brighton Bear Weekend Festival of events.
Lunch Positive who provide a nutritious meal every Friday for people who are HIV positive, will for the first time be cooking a selection of meats, burgers, and sausages including vegetarian options from a BBQ.
There will also be cool chilled salads and pasta dishes all served by the hard working volunteers at Lunch Positive. Prices start from £2.50 for food and another first, teas and coffees will be available to buy at the event.
Already confirmed for the Bear-B-Que are mixologists Gin and Bear It who will be making gin cocktails to order, soft drinks, Pimms and more to satisfy your thirst along with a special Bear Weekend gin cocktail where a percentage of money from each cocktail goes to the Rainbow Fund.
This might be well needed after you recover from watching the Brighton and Hove Sea Serpents, the local gay rugby team, who will be playing a demonstration game in the afternoon and be meeting people who have come along to the event.
Gary Pargeter from Lunch Positive, says: “Lunch Positive is really looking forward to Brighton Bear Weekend, and providing the Bear-B-Q at Dorset Gardens. Our volunteers are planning some excellent hot & cold food, and the proceeds will all go towards providing the HIV lunch club. Thanks very much to the organisers for asking us to get involved, and we’re looking forward to seeing & feeding everyone on the day!”
Graham Munday Chair of Brighton Bear Weekend, added: “It is one of my favourite events of the weekend. It happens away from the scene and it feels like a real community event where everybody is welcome. We are proud to be raising money for The Rainbow Fund so do please buy raffle tickets, wristbands, t-shirts and support everybody that makes this a very special event. Looking forward to seeing everybody down there.”
Brighton Bear Weekend is from June 16 to 19.
