BHT are pleased to announce that the Brighton Royal Pavilion Ice Rink will be supporting us over the Christmas months and helping us fundraise for our Christmas appeal which will raise money for First Base Day Centre.
The Royal Pavilion Ice Rink will host a range of events over the festive period from a Santa’s grotto on 9 & 10 December, to selling festive gifts on Sundays in December, with all proceeds going to First Base Day Centre.
Throughout December BHT will also be holding a weekly draw for people to win a free family skate voucher, kindly donated by the Brighton Royal Pavilion Ice Rink.
To be in with a chance of winning the tickets simply donate to the BHT Christmas appeal One winner will be picked at random each week.
The Festive afternoons at the Brighton Pavilion Ice Rink will be held on the 7, 14 & 21 December and people can come to Santa’s grotto on the 9 & 10 December from 10am – 1.30pm.
At this time of year, the idea of anyone being forced to sleep out in the cold on the streets is shocking and unacceptable.
We are delighted to be supporting Brighton Housing Trust and the vital services they offer at First Base.
Shella Parkin, Director, Brighton Pavilion Ice Rink
We are really excited to be working in partnership with the iconic Brighton Pavilion Ice Rink. There are lots of exciting events lined up which we hope will help to raise a lot of money for First Base, our day centre which works with homeless, insecurely housed and vulnerable men and women in Brighton and Hove.
Increasingly, the people who are turning to First Base for help are not our traditional clients, but people who for the first time are facing the very real possibility of using food banks, losing their homes because of redundancy, ill health, relationship breakdown, zero hour contracts, and the like. Many never thought that they would ever need a service for homeless people.
First Base works with people to rebuild their lives after the devastation of homelessness. Helping them to move forward, away from homelessness and towards more positive futures.
