Another of our popular Busking days will take place at the Clock Tower in St Albans on Saturday 05 December from 11am to 4pm. A great line up and a surprise celebrity guest is due to make an appearance too.

This event is free aiming to help raise awareness of HIV in our community and of course funds for us via donations to enable us to keep providing services for all, and support those already affected by HIV in our community.

Please do come along, spare some change if you can, we need you as much as ever. Most importantly though find our more about HIV, and what it means to be HIV positive, ask our volunteers for help and advice, collect free condoms.

More information below on the line up of the fabulous local musicians who donate their free time, and immense talent, to make this event such a popular one.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Open Day A Huge Success !

Hey everyone,

Sorry there has been a delay in updating our blog, so much going on very little time to talk about it ! Our 2nd open day was again a great success! Lots of cake baked by our lovely volunteers and supporters, great music from local bands who all donated their time and talent, fantastic atmosphere and a super sunny day, perfect ! Thank you to all that came along, bought raffle tickets (prize winners ticket numbers are on our face book site) donated, and found out more about our work and HIV.

Huge thanks also to all the many local businesses that supported the event and donated prizes for the raffle too. Chloe James Lifestyle, Heartwood Candles, Dylans at the Kings Arms, The Meating Room, I am Cocoa, Smokehouse Deli, Empire Records, Paul Eccentric, Starseedz, Gavin Murtagh, Vanessa, and many more, including Pasante Healthcare who helped sponsor the event and launch of our testing services.

We were thrilled that The Right Worshipful the Mayor of St Albans City and District, Councillor Salih Gaygusuz took so much time out of his busy schedule to attend the event and also his amazing efforts selling raffle tickets! We raised a very healthy sum which will help us keep providing services for those in need. In particular it will go towards funding our instant result HIV  and postal testing services, email testing@thecrescent.org.uk or call 01727 842532 for more details.

We look forward to welcoming you all again next year, and don’t forget our next event, a busking day, is on the 15th August at the Clock Tower in St Albans City Centre from 10.30 am. Look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks again for all your wonderful support as ever
