World Aids Day Collections & Awareness Events

Thank you to all our brave volunteers who braved the cold yesterday in St Albans and Harpenden to raise awareness for World Aids Day and HIV in general.

As a result we managed to get a huge number of people wearing ribbons and some kind souls  made donations which now brings our World Aids Day fundraising to almost £3500 which is an absolutely amazing amount,

Thank you all so much, and please remember to take a minute today to remember those we have lost to HIV/AIDS in the last 30 years. With your help we can beat this virus and stop it spreading, but only with your help, please do whatever you can to get the message out to people that they should get tested, and that safe sexual habits are the only way.

Remember that people living with HIV deserve, and need, as much love, respect and care as everyone else. HIV is not someting to be afraid of, but it is something to fight, and to protect yourself from. This can only be done by removing the stigma that surrounds it, and that means education, so spread the word !!

We are contributing also to the awareness event at St Albans Abbey all this week until Monday 5th December, manned by staff and volunteers, so come along to find out how you can help beat the stigma, and defeat HIV now!!

Thank you

The Crescent Team
