A NIGHTCLUB has paid tribute to a "beautiful" and "deeply loved" member of staff who has died.

Club Revenge in Brighton’s Old Steine announced the death of Blair Envy in a post on its Facebook page.

The nightclub said Blair had made a “huge impact to the team” since she started working for the club in May.

A spokesman described her as someone who “radiated positivity for anyone that met her”.

He said: “It is with great regret that we must share the news of the passing of one of our staff members.

“Blair Envy was loved by many at Revenge, both staff and customers alike. Her presence was so strong, and her absence will be felt throughout the community.

“Blair was only with us since May, but in that time, she made a huge impact on each and every one of us.

“Her energy can only be described as love and light - she radiated positivity and anyone that met her will have felt that.

“Blair was so many things to so many people, but most importantly she was deeply loved by us all.

“This is a very sad time for the community, both at Revenge and beyond.”

A fundraiser set up by the club in Blair’s memory has raised more than £4,700 in just two days.

All the money raised will to the Clare Project, a transgender support and social group based in Brighton.

Writing on the fundraiser, a friend said: “Blair was such a strong woman, and a real role model to the people around her, she stood for being true to oneself and being kind.

“I'm nothing but sad but it's touching to see what an impact she had.”

Another added: “Blair was such a force of energy that you couldn’t help but fall in love with.

“Full of charm and wit, I feel a deep sadness that the world has lost this beautiful woman.”

The club has also opened a book of condolences for customers to leave a personal message or to share their memories of Blair.

It will be placed behind the bar and revellers can ask staff for access.

Plans are also being made for a permanent memorial to honour Blair’s memory.
