On Saturday, September 9 between 11am and 4pm, local HIV charity The Sussex Beacon will be holding the annual Summer Fete in its garden on Bevendean Road, Brighton.
Star Wars fans will be able to mingle with the movie characters on the day, as The UK Garrison, one of the leading Star Wars costume groups, will be popping in to join the fun.
Entry to the family fun day is free and there will be a range of stalls, refreshments and entertainment. Money raised will go directly towards helping people living with HIV in Sussex.
Stalls at the fete will include traditional favourites including a coconut shy, hook a duck, whack-a-rat, face painting, a tombola and a raffle. As well as photo opportunities in the afternoon with the Star Wars characters, there’ll also be entertainment from David Hill, David Raven and Keris Lea.
Simon Dowe, Chief Executive of The Sussex Beacon, said: “This is going to be a great day for all the family, especially Star Wars fans, young and old! If Star Wars isn’t up your street, we have a beautiful garden, there’ll be some fab games, prizes and delicious cakes on offer. Please come along, enjoy the fun and show your support for a brilliant cause.”
The Sussex Beacon provides specialist support and care for people living with HIV through both inpatient and outpatient services. It helps hundreds of people living with HIV in Sussex each year and was rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission in September.
