We were so pleased to attend the Abbey yesterday for the presentations, Good to see so many worthy causes, including The Crescent, receiving support from the Mission Allocation.

Especially pleased to have the support of the Congregational giving team, looking forward to working closely with the Cathedral team in preparation for World Aids Day which will also be our 25th Anniversary this year.

Wonderful News From The Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Albans

Dear all,

Fantanstic news !! The Cathedral have made a substantial donation to the Save The Crescent Fund !! We are very pleased to receive such a kind and generous gift and this is a great start to our fundraising appeal.

This means we will be able to restart more services sooner than expected to help those living with, or affected by HIV, in the Diocese. This along with several other generous donations from local people, and from further afield, is helping us maintain our much needed services.

The Crescent on behalf of their members would like to express their heartfelt thanks for this donation which is a great start to our forthcoming fundraising event. We are now looking forward to the concert on 22nd of February which we expect will be a great success, and hope will bring more much needed funds for our service.

Tomorrow there will be an article in the Hertfordshire Advertiser about the benefit concert on 22nd Feb, details of which we will post here shortly.

Thanks once again to the Cathedral and of course to all of you providing us with such wonderful support!

Best wishes

The Crescent Team
