World AIDS Day 2017

Hi all,

World AIDS Day is almost upon us! This Friday is also our 29th Anniversary and to mark the day we will be holding an awareness event at St Albans City Station where we hope to be joined by a special guest for the evening rush hour. Then on Saturday we are holding another of our famous “Busking days” more info on this can be found on our facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/events/511352439225154/ including a running order for the many performers again this year including our good friends Starseedz, Li Li and Tom Craven to name but three ! The event starts at 11am at the Clock Tower, Market Place, St Albans. Then on Sunday we have another “SausageSizzle” at our lovely friends at Bunnings in Griffiths Way StAlbans from 10.30 am.

We hope to see you there, without your support we cannot do what we do. Help us celebrate our anniversary as we move into our 30th year supporting those living with, or affected by HIV in our community.

Thanks as ever

The Crescent Team

Annual Spring Basket – An Appeal for Help

 

It is that time of year again when we appeal for donations of clothes household goods toys and games  for the annual “Spring Basket” held in conjunction with the Diocese Board for Church and Society HIV Support Group.

This event held every year is always very well received and enables those most vulnerable in our community to find items that they need for free in a safe and understanding environment.

In order to do this we need donations of new or nearly new household goods, clothes (for men women and children of all ages) toys and games (no electrical goods though please)

So if you are having a wardrobe update, or spring clean, moving home, or are a company with excess or unwanted stock we would welcome your donations of the above items which will help those living with HIV in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire immensely. You can donate anytime as this is an annual event, however for this year we need more donations before 7th May please.

Please contact Iain on 01727 842532 or email info@thecrescent.org.uk if you are able to help.

For more info on the Spring Basket please see the flyer from the Diocese HIV Support Group >>Click Here for Flyer>> 

Thanks for your support and assistance as ever

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
