Our latest article now published on PositiveLite

Dear all,

We have published another update on PositiveLite illustrating our latest endeavours, including the marvellous event at Boots in St Albans with Elizabeth Arden, and details of the fantastic QAVS award too.

A link to the article on how we have managed to keep afloat since funding ceased is here http://positivelite.com/component/zoo/item/when-an-aids-service-organization-loses-its-funding-how-does-it-survive

As you can see we are so reliant upon your support to keep our service going, without you we simply cannot do what we do, so thanks to you all.

We hope to see you at our next events, open day 03 September and a sausage sizzle at Bunnings Lyons Way St Albans on the 14th October, more to follow…

Best wishes

The Crescent Team

The Crescent is nominated for the Queens Award For Voluntary Service

Dear all,

We are thrilled that the Bishop of St Albans has nominated us for this amazing award, (which is the equivalent of an MBE for a voluntary organisation) and especially honoured to be considered on the eve of HM the Queen’s 90th birthday too. Three of our volunteers attended a reception at County Hall in Hertford recently as recognition of our nomination.

The winners of the award will be announced in June and we will of course keep you informed ! If we are successful we will be presented with our award by The Countess of Verulam, Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire and receive an invite to a garden party at Buckingham Palace.

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

It promises to be a fun night with lots of great fashion and lifestyle items to see and also to purchase as we believe the store will be open on the night for you to buy items that grab you!

There are a wealth of things to see on their website and online shop too, (with more in store) http://www.chloejameslifestyle.co.uk fashion, interiors, gifts, jewellery, so much more!

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
