West End Bares chose to promote and support the charity Positive East as a part of this event in recognition of the amazing work they do supporting people living with and affected by HIV in east London.
Steven Inman, MAD Charity Director said, “Once again West End Bares has proven to be one of the most fun ways you can spend an evening and raise funds for charity. Here at MAD we are so grateful to Darren Carnall, Matt Krzan, Jayson Gray and indeed all of the performers, choreographers, technical support and volunteers that give their all to support our cause. The London Olympic ‘Games Makers’ were incredible and did a wonderful job, and reminds us we must also never forget the thousands of individuals out there that volunteer their time either for charities or as carers for those that need their help on a daily basis. This country has a lot to be proud about”
The event was sponsored and supported by some amazing companies including MAC Cosmetics, aussieBum, Prowler Stores, GT Magazine, Stage Won, QX Magazine, Baseline Magazine and Café de Paris.
