Listen to our member Blessing talking on BBC 3 Counties about HIV and her story

Hi all,

We were very fortunate to be allowed to appear on the Nesta McGregor show last night on BBC 3 Counties radio with our member, Blessing.

Blessing was very brave talking about her story, how people reacted to her diagnosis, how she felt about her daughter being diagnosed at the same time, plus how the Crescent helped her and her family cope with this.

You can listen again here, we are on from 1hr44mins and 38secs.

Help us keep helping those like Blessing, come along to our next Quiz night fundraiser on 08 August or visit our website http://www.thecrescent.org.uk to donate and see how you can help us further.

Thanks as ever for your support

SKY IQ revamp the Crescent Garden

Dear all

A group of lovely voluteers from SKYIQ came along to revamp the Crescent garden last week ! Ten hard working souls cleared hedges and borders, cut grass and painted railings and all in under 4 hours, a simply marvellous gesture ! Huge thanks to Brenda and the team from SKY IQ St Albans.

A link to this week’s newspaper article here;
