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

Thursday night was a sell out success ! The fashion show held by Chloe James Lifestyle for our benefit was hugely popular! We are so grateful to Donna and Maria from the lovely shop in the High Street, the Cote Brasserie also in St Albans High Street, and The Salon St Albans for all the hard work that went into making the night a great success. We even had Annie Brewster, our Mayor from 2013/14, modelling some of the lovely outfits.
The raffle will be drawn on Monday, so for those of you who still would like a ticket please call the store on 01727843431, or call in at 12 the High Street this weekend, open from 9.30 to 6pm Saturday and 11 to 5pm Sunday. Lots of great prizes including a £200 makeover at The Salon St Albans!
A great review of the evening by someone who was there on the night can be found here http://stateofadress.com/chloe-james-catwalk-show/ Lots of lovely photos included, will post more when we have some too.
Huge thanks from all of us to all of you who participated in the evening, or bought a raffle ticket, we really do appreciate your support, it does make a world of difference to us and allows us to keep doing our vital work.
More news to come in the next few weeks, including another concert, a fantastic exhibition of the Stand Tall Get Snapped Project at St Albans Cathedral for two weeks over the World Aids Day period, a busking day on 06 December at the Clock Tower, a cabin in the Christmas Market in December, street collections, a market stall, so much more to come!
