A team from The Sussex Beacon took on a 300 metre zip wire on Brighton beach, raising funds to support people living with HIV.

The group of 16 staff, volunteers and supporters of the Brighton HIV charity took on the challenge on Saturday, September 16, raising £1,600.

Jason Warriner, clinical services director at The Sussex Beacon, said: “Thanks go to the team for taking the plunge on the zip wire and for their fantastic efforts getting sponsorship. We had a real laugh and the money raised will go towards our vital work, supporting people living with HIV in Sussex. Everyone enjoyed it so much, it might become an annual event!”

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.
