Following on from the Sunday People interview featured in the last post, tomorrow morning our lovely Rachel will be appearing on the daytime TV progamme “This Morning” on ITV talking about life with HIV, and also The Crescent.
We think this is a very brave and groundbreaking step and we are so very proud of Rachel for standing up in an attempt to beat HIV stigma and raise awareness of the risks faced by everyone.
Don’t forget to watch, tweet the show, or call/email them with your views !
Thank you for your ongoing support, together we can eradicate stigma and raise awareness !!
The Crescent Team
For all those affected by the, hopefully short term, closure of Herts Aid offices in Watford the Crescent is of course able to provide assistance should you need it as we will be open in Russell Avenue St Albans every day.
Anyone in need of help or advice, who wishes to do so locally, can visit our centre in St Albans, phone us on 01727842532 / 07904812500 or reach us on firstname.lastname@example.org you will always be welcome, details of some of our events can be found on our website http://www.thecrescent.org.uk
Following reports in the local press concerning the number of people living with HIV in the area last week we would like to reiterate that it is our intention to remain open, despite funding cuts by Herts County Council who stopped all our funding in 2011.
We are only able to do so though with the support and generosity of the general public. It is our 25th year supporting those living with HIV (we were founded on the first World Aids Day in 1988) and we intend to remain doing so until such time as a cure is found.
If you can help us either by making a donation, or other way (such as volunteering)then please do visit our website, http://www.thecrescent.org.uk, or contact us on the details listed above.
