Busking Day Returns for World AIDS Day 01 December 2019

Hi All,

Apologies for being so quiet on here of late, but don’t worry we haven’t gone away. We are still busy supporting our members and raising aware ness of #HIV in the community.

You may have seen us over the last few months at Harpenden and St Albans railway stations or in Boots #StAlbans last month (see our twitter @CrescentSupport)

The good news is our Busking Day is back for World AIDS Day this year. Sunday 01 December we will be at the Clock Tower in St Albans High Street from 11am as usual with our lovely buskers all donating their time and talent to raise funds for us.

More details will follow shortly, including a list of artists performing on the day. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thanks as ever for your support,

The Crescent Team

World AIDS Day Events Last Weekend & a New Patron !

Dear All,

A fantastic weekend of events, On Friday we managed to get a huge number of commuters to take Red Ribbons to commemorate World Aids Day, also we collected a very substantial sum from those very kind folk during the day. We were honoured to be joined by our new Patron, Alex Mayer MEP who helped collect and distribute ribbons with us in the afternoon.

An article in the Herts Advertiser about our new Patron and our World AIDS day events here http://www.hertsad.co.uk/news/st-albans-hiv-charity-the-crescent-holds-events-for-world-aids-day-1-5302214

Our Busking Day on Saturday was similarly successful, we had many interesting conversations about HIV and the current issues and raised much awareness with over 1000 ribbons distributed on that day alone.

On Sunday our Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings was similarly busy, so much so that we will be back again on 17th December for another Sizzle at Bunnings in Griffiths Way !

A huge thank you to all who helped with the events, performed at the busking day and distributed ribbons. Most importantly thank you to all those who took a ribbon, donated and those who stopped to find out more about HIV and the Crescent’s work

We simply cannot do what we do without you !

Thanks as ever for your support
