On the 29th March we hosted an amazing charity Arancini Event to raise money for The Sussex Beacon. The evening saw us welcome guest chefs from The Chilli Pickle, Wild Flor, Nostos and Boho Gelato, alongside our own chefs, who each prepared their own twist on the classic arancino.

The sold-out event was a roaring success and we were treated to some incredible mouthwatering arancino dishes, prepared by some of Brighton’s best chefs, including:

  • NOSTOS: Trahana – Smoked cheese & veal pastrami on basil mayo & tomato jam
  • THE CHILLI PICKLE: Kari Crab – Crab biryani, chilli, cheese, vermicelli, Moilee sauce, curry leaf chutney
  • CIN CIN: Spring Agnello – Calcot Farm lamb, spring onion caponata, parsley mayo
  • WILD FLOR: Some Like It Scot – Haggis arancino, iberiko tomato
  • BOHO GELATO: Breakfast In Sicily – Pistachio & orange rice pudding deep fried gelato

The guest judges award and the people’s choice award went to the hugely talented chef Alun Sperring from The Chilli Pickle with his delicious Kari Crab. Followed closely in second place by Cin Cin chef Mike’s Spring Agnello arancino.

The raffle on the night included some fabulous prizes donated by the restaurants taking part and we are pleased to announce from the ticket sales and the raffle we raised a staggering £1,720 for The Sussex Beacon, who provide specialist care and support for people living with HIV.

HIV remains a serious, life-changing condition with, as yet no cure. The public perception is often that HIV is no longer a threat in the UK, but every year over 5,000 people receive an HIV diagnosis. Early diagnosis, extensive access to HIV care and treatment, adoption of healthier lifestyles and good adherence to HIV medication can all help people live well with HIV.

The Sussex Beacon support people who are struggling to cope with HIV, supporting their independence and improving their health and wellbeing; their 10-bed inpatient unit provides high quality care, rehabilitation and treatment and their Community Services empower people to manage their own health and to live well with HIV.

Every year, The Sussex Beacon need to raise over two million pounds to continue providing these vital services to people living with HIV and we are proud to play our part in helping to reach their target.

David, Cin Cin Founder said “I want to thank all who came to our event and bought a raffle ticket and to the restaurants and chefs who contributed to this fantastic night for this incredible charity. It is only through the generosity of people like you that The Sussex Beacon are able to continue their work. And watch this space for the next event as we will definitely be running more”.
