World AIDS Day 2017

Hi all,

World AIDS Day is almost upon us! This Friday is also our 29th Anniversary and to mark the day we will be holding an awareness event at St Albans City Station where we hope to be joined by a special guest for the evening rush hour. Then on Saturday we are holding another of our famous “Busking days” more info on this can be found on our facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/events/511352439225154/ including a running order for the many performers again this year including our good friends Starseedz, Li Li and Tom Craven to name but three ! The event starts at 11am at the Clock Tower, Market Place, St Albans. Then on Sunday we have another “SausageSizzle” at our lovely friends at Bunnings in Griffiths Way StAlbans from 10.30 am.

We hope to see you there, without your support we cannot do what we do. Help us celebrate our anniversary as we move into our 30th year supporting those living with, or affected by HIV in our community.

Thanks as ever

The Crescent Team

Listen to our member Blessing on BBC 3 Counties today

Hi all,

Listen to our member Blessing today on the BBC3 Counties programme “Shrink Wrapped” talking about her diagnosis and the subsequent diagnosis of her youngest daughter following the collapse of her marriage. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02c9w79 We are on from 34 mins, following the interview with Blessing we talk about late diagnosis and the need to get tested regularly to avoid passing on the virus and of course harming your own health.

Don’t forget our Stand Tall Get Snapped Exhibition is still open at the North Transept of St Albans Cathedral until 05 December and we will be in the St Albans Market tomorrow for World Aids Day plus a street collection throughout the City too. At the Christmas cabin you can enter a raffle to win a 40″ TV as well as a host of other amazing prizes too.

There is also a free live music event at the Clock Tower in St Albans on Saturday 06 December from 11 to 4pm featuring a host of live bands to raise funds for us too.

Hope to see you at one of the events, help us keep helping Blessing and her family as they continue to live with HIV

Thanks as ever for your amazing support

A great review of the Chloe James Fashion Show Fundraiser

Hi All,

A great review of the Chloe James Charity Fashion show here http://stateofadress.com/chloe-james-catwalk-show/ ! The night went so very well and raised an amazing £1500 to which the lovely Annie Brewster our former Mayor added an additional £1000 which is simply fantastic!

We are so very grateful to all those who took part, bought a raffle ticket, to the lovely ladies at Chloe James Lifestyle who worked so hard to put this together for us and of course to Annie Brewster who not only modelled on the night but also contributed such a generous amount to the total too.

St Albans people we salute you and on behalf of all those we support, Thank you !!

More events coming up shortly including a concert, another Busking Day on 06 December, plus a simply wonderful World Aids Day exhibition of the ground breaking Stand Tall Get Snapped photography exhibition at St Albans Cathedral for two weeks from the 24th November to 05 December, a stall in the Christmas Market, street collections in December and more, keep watching this space for more news coming soon !!

Thanks again for your continued support

Busking Event at the Clocktower A Resounding Success

Hi all,

The busking event on Saturday was a resounding success having raised a wonderful sum for us despite the awful weather and the house (gazebo) being brought down as a finale !!

Huge thanks to the Trestle Arts Base and Denise Parsons for all her hard work getting the event going and also to all the talented musicians who so kindly gave their time and skill to make the event the success it was! We distributed lots of information and red ribbons too, rasing awareness of HIV in the City and beyond.

Here is a link to the latest news article, more photos to come of the day itself !
