The gay Catholic group, Acceptance, presented a cheque for $1,400 to a committee member from Stanford House.

The money raised from Acceptance’s Mardi Gras trivia night held earlier this year has been put towards Stanford House, a charity organisation which provides supported accommodation for people with HIV/AIDS.

In accepting the cheque at a hand-over ceremony held after Friday Mass at St Joseph’s Church in Newtown, the Stanford House representative, who asked to be identified only as Ben, thanked Acceptance for their ongoing assistance.
