PRESS RELEASE 15 MAY 2018
Camden LGBT Forum Thank Phoenix Artist Club for ‘Amazing Generosity’
Camden LGBT Forum has thanked Phoenix Artist Club for raising £1140 during a charity fundraiser on Sunday 13 May which saw over 20 acts donate their talents for free.
A packed crowd were wowed by West End singers and dancers who performed for ‘A Night in Soho’ at the club which ‘entertains the entertainers’.
Camden LGBT Forum will use the money to pay for their stall at Pride in Trafalgar Square on 7 July.
Camden LGBT Forum Chair, Bettina Ratcliffe said:
“Thanks to the amazing generosity of Ken and Colin at Phoenix Artist Club – and a slew of talented performers giving their time for free – we are able to fund our presence at Pride London this year.
“Every pound raised helps someone in our community in trouble or at risk of violence or discrimination”.
“We are a small charity which supports the victims of hate crime and works with the police and other institutions to ensure social injustices are challenged through the legal system and to make the LGBT Community safer every day.
“The LGBT Community is synonymous with London’s Arts Scene – as anyone who has attended Camden’s LGBT History Month will tell you. We’ve had a long and wonderfully positive relationship with Phoenix Artist Club through their hosting of the Incite Poetry Readings.”
“We wish them the very best for their 30th anniversary entertaining the entertainers, this year.”
Ken Wright co-owner of Phoenix Artist Club said:
“As the most south westerly outpost of Camden – cross any road and you’re in Westminster! – we are delighted to continue our support for this fabulous local organisation. I’m delighted we were able to host this event and would wish to recognise and thank the wonderful performers who freely gave their time and talent on the night.
We wish LGBT Camden Forum all the best and hope their stand at Pride looks fabulous!“
