Overwhelmed by support received in the last week from some very influencial people who have agreed to help us with our fund raising appeal, a copy of the appeal brochure will be available shortly in printed form, and will be posted here too.
Statements in support have been received from the Bishop of St Albans, Lady Verulam, and Lord Fowler recently for inclusion in the appeal documentation, with Lord Rennard, former Chief Executive of the Liberal Democrats, offering to assist in hosting the event which is expected to take place at the House of Lords.
Lord Fowler in particular has said;
“I fully support the work by the Crescent in St. Albans for people living with HIV, their partners, families and friends. Over the last nine months I have been chairman of a Select Committee of the House of Lords on HIV in the United Kingdom. This is a crucial health issue and organisations like the Crescent totally deserve our support.”
Lord Norman Fowler
Former Secretary of State for Health
Chair, House of Lords Select Committee on HIV and Aids in the United Kingdom
