We were delighted to welcome local MP, Caroline Lucas, and the Mayor of Brighton & Hove to our annual barbecue held at Stanmer Park on Sunday 22nd July. Our special guests took great interest in our work, speaking with befrienders, parents and children about what we do and the difference we make to the lives of children from disadvantaged backgrounds throughout Brighton.
We hosted over 100 guests in total with Ralph and Josh performing stupendously in keeping everyone happy with various treats from the grill. Meanwhile children and befrienders played ball games, got their faces painted, did some balloon art or simply chilled out on what felt like the first time we'd seen the sun this year!
Thanks go to all who made this another Fun outing to remember, particularly to all those who provided food, helped set up and also provided lifts in and out of the city. Let's hope the sunshine continues!
