Lord Rennard Supporting The Crescent

Dear all,

Lord Rennard has issued the following statement in support of our campaign to remain open and seek alternative funding;

“I fully support the work by the Crescent for people living with or affected by HIV, their partners, families and friends. This is a model organisation run by the people it helps, where those affected have a direct influence on how, and where, they receive the much needed help and support to enable them to manage their condition.”

You can find out more about Lord Rennard and his interests here; http://tinyurl.com/7pxf3pn

We are so very pleased to have so much high profile support, and wish to thank all of you for continuing to follow and support us too. The major fundraising events at the House of Lords are to begin shortly, we will keep you all informed of the progress. The Bishop of St Albans is due to visit next Monday along with representatives of the Diocese HIV Support Group and the local press, to find out more about our services and plans for the future.
