A Brighton charity is celebrating handing over half a million pounds to good causes in some of the poorest parts of the area.

The East Brighton Trust said: “We are celebrating having awarded £500,000 to good causes in East Brighton.

“We’ve got a really fun, jam-packed event planned and we are looking forward to showcasing some of the wonderful projects we’ve supported over the years.”

The party next month – at the Bevy community pub in Hillside in Moulsecoomb – will feature live performances from Youth Poets v MCs and the Moulsecoomb Treasures and the Tantrum Dance Troupe.

The BACA Bike Club will take part along with the Gladrags community costume photobooth and crafts from the Woolly Umbrella.

And for the nostalgic, there will be historical photos from the East Brighton Bygones.

The Brighton and Hove Youth Collective, the Bridge and the Resource Centre will also be represented.

The organisers are also asking guests to bring photos sharing their memories of Bevendean to be scanned and archived for the Bevy Past, Present and Future history project.

The trust is a community interest company (CIC) based in Moulsecoomb. Since 2008 it has handed more than £500,000 in grants to community groups and charities in Moulsecoomb, the Bates Estate, Saunders Park, Manor Farm, Whitehawk, Craven Vale, the Bristol Estate and Higher Bevendean.
