Lyons and Bears!

Comedian Zoe Lyons, patron of the Rainbow Fund and a great supporter of Brighton Bear Weekend, has kindly sent us her best wishes for the big weekend:

“June 14 marks the start of Brighton’s brilliant Bear Weekend. Four days full of fantastic events guaranteed to keep every fun-loving Bear entertained. The weekend has been a huge supporter of the Rainbow Fund over the years. Helping to raise much-needed funds for local LGBT/HIV support groups. At a time when government funding for such projects is much reduced, communities really do have to look after each other, so thank you gorgeous Bears. Wishing you all a fun, happy and safe weekend.”

Thanks, Zoe! You can read the full article containing Zoe’s statement in Gscene:
