Herts Pride 31st August 2013

Hi all,

Thanks to all those who called by our stall at the first Herts Pride last Saturday to find out more about us and HIV in general. We had a very good day and managed to distribute a considerable amount of information and free condoms to those attending.

Looking forward to next year now !

Thanks for your support as ever
