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

Herts Aid Watford Closure – The Crescent lends a helping hand…

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 info@thecrescent.org.uk 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.

The Crescent Team
