The Sussex Beacon has continued to provide care and support for people living with HIV in Brighton and Sussex during the pandemic. This often meant working even more closely with NHS providers and ensuring that appointments and treatments were provided to diverse groups during an exceptionally challenging time.
The pressure of coronavirus on the Beacon’s services means that they need the help of their fundraisers more than ever. With limited funds available from Government, the Beacon is reliant on its runners and participants to help provide needed funds.
Luckily, the Sussex Beacon fields one of the largest groups of runners each year at the Brighton Half Marathon. Under the banner of Team Beacon, these dedicated runners raise money for the Brighton-based charity and ensure that those living with HIV in the area are visible.
The Brighton Half Marathon is organised and led by the Sussex Beacon on behalf of its service users and also those looked after by other charities. By joining Team Beacon, you’ll ensure that the impact of your fundraising stays local, positively impacting those with the greatest need.
