Gareth Thomas & HIV The Crescent talks to Roberto Perrone on BBC 3CR

Hi all,

Listen again to our Iain Murtagh talking to Roberto Perrone on BBC3CR last month after Gareth Thomas revealed he is living with HIV. Talking about awareness, stigma and how great it was to see Mr Thomas talking openly about the condition, and why it really is a very manageable condition now.

Listen from 1 hour 6 mins 30 here;

Boots the Chemist Event St Albans 07 September 2019

Hi all

Last month the wonderful folk at Boots in St Peters Street organised a fundraising day for us on 07 September and donated hundreds of pounds worth of cosmetic goodies for us to raffle.

We are very grateful to Wendy, Elizabeth Arden Account Manager, Store Manager Amanda and her Assistant Manager Molly, for all their hard work.

We raised over £500 on the day and there is a possibility, we are told, that Boots will most likely match this with a donation of £500!

Huge thanks to all involved as well as those who came along to buy a raffle ticket, or make a donation as well as those who donated online via facebook or our website too
