Sausage Sizzle and Cake Sale Sat 01 April 2017

Hi all,

We will be holding another Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings, Griffiths Way, St Albans this Saturday (01 April) from 9am to 4pm. We are immensely grateful for the support from Bunnings (the new owners of the UK Homebase Stores) who provide the facilities for this marvellous fundraiser. Please do come down to the store in Griffiths Way St Albans (formerly the large Homebase store at the bottom of St Stephens and Holywell Hill, adjacent to the large Sainsbury store) on Saturday, check out their great range of DIY and gardening products, get a “Sausage Sizzle” and /or a lovely home baked cake and help to continue helping those most in need in our community too.

Keep following this blog, or our facebook or twitter (@CrescentSupport) to find out more about our fundraising and awareness events coming up next, (including our regular summer Busking day in the City centre on  Saturday 03 June 2017), more details to follow shortly…

Thanks as ever for all your support, we cant do what we do without you !

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday !

Hertfordshire County Councillors and St Albans City And District Council Help The Crescent

Please see the latest article in the Hertfordshire Advertiser talking about the kind assistance from our local County Councillor, Chris White, and also his colleagues from across the County, who have once again this year helped us by awarding sums of money from their locality to budgets to allow us to continue our work. We also have once again this year been awarded a grant from the community fund from St Albans City and District Council to help us with running our social groups and lunch events.

We are very pleased indeed to receive this support both from the City Council, and also from so many County Councillors who clearly recognise the value of our services to the community across the County. It is a grave pity that the County Council still refuses to acknowledge that we deserve some funding for the work we do and that nearly five years on we are still managing to provide the much needed support for people living with HIV in the County.

Thanks as ever for your continued support and hope to see you at our open day on 21st September from 2 to 6pm

Listen to our member Blessing talking on BBC 3 Counties about HIV and her story

Hi all,

We were very fortunate to be allowed to appear on the Nesta McGregor show last night on BBC 3 Counties radio with our member, Blessing.

Blessing was very brave talking about her story, how people reacted to her diagnosis, how she felt about her daughter being diagnosed at the same time, plus how the Crescent helped her and her family cope with this.

You can listen again here, we are on from 1hr44mins and 38secs.

Help us keep helping those like Blessing, come along to our next Quiz night fundraiser on 08 August or visit our website http://www.thecrescent.org.uk to donate and see how you can help us further.

Thanks as ever for your support
