SkyFall restaurant in Hove celebrates first birthday and raises money for The Sussex Beacon.
SkyFall, a contemporary, modern British/European restaurant in the heart of Hove, celebrated a year of trading on Sunday and raised money for local HIV charity, The Sussex Beacon.
Special invited guests enjoyed two floors of live music from local artists Eyal Shavit and Eliza Faie and complimentary canapés and drinks. Local celebrities present included Monty Python’s Flying Circus actress Carol Cleveland, TV presenter Mike Mendozza, West End director Carole Todd and David Hill from E3 Group.
SkyFall’s owner, Jordan Tsar, has thrown his personal and corporate support behind a range of charities, including The Sussex Beacon and Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice.
He said: “Engaging with our local business community is an important part of our ethos, and through our charitable commitments we strive to make a difference to people’s lives in Sussex. This first birthday event is our way of saying thank you to the people, businesses and charities who have been a part of our success so far”.
As well as being a sponsor of the Sussex Beacon’s Vitality Brighton Half Marathon, throughout August SkyFall hopes to raise enough money to fund two weeks of specialist HIV nursing care at the Sussex Beacon.
They are doing this by selling a special Pride cocktail – the Beacon Blue – with proceeds going to charity, and running several charity comedy nights hosted by Australian entertainer Sheila Simmonds.
Sussex Beacon CEO, Simon Dowe, said: “We rely on the commitment and support of local businesses, like SkyFall, to fund much of our important work within the City and beyond. As HIV infection rates continue to rise in Sussex, it’s vital that we continue to educate, inform and support people living with or at risk of HIV. The special, ongoing relationship we have developed with SkyFall enables us to continue our work. They have been so supportive, and we’re very grateful”.
As it enters its second year of business, Skyfall has firmly established itself on the Hove restaurant scene. A recently refurbished, fully equipped private function and corporate events space is proving extremely popular and SkyFall have donated the space to several charities already, including the Chestnut Tree House Big Heart Auction which went on to raise over £35,000 last month.
