Fantastic reviews for our Stand Tall Exhibition at St Albans Cathedral

Hi All

We have had some great reviews for the exhibition of the Stand Tall Get Snapped Exhibition at St Albans Cathedral which has been running throughout National HIV Testing week and World Aids Day week, closing today at 15.45hrs.

We will share some of the visitors comments with you shortly as they are recorded in a visitors book, the Cathedral have commented that it is the best exhibition that they have seen in many years! It has been so thrilling to be able to exhibit the project in such an atmospheric place , and under the rose window unveiled by Diana, Princess of Wales in 1989, another great champion of people living with HIV

Huge thanks to all at St Albans Cathedral especially Richard Watson, to Edo Zollo the talented photographer, to all who participated in the project especially the Crescent members Chris and Rachel.

More news follows shortly, we finish our World Aids Day events with a busking day tomorrow at the Clock Tower in St Albans along with a stall in the main street market and collections throughout the city.

We hope you will come along to join us, as well as great music there is also a raffle for a huge range of prizes including a 40″ Toshiba LED TV…

A great review of the Chloe James Fashion Show Fundraiser

Hi All,

A great review of the Chloe James Charity Fashion show here http://stateofadress.com/chloe-james-catwalk-show/ ! The night went so very well and raised an amazing £1500 to which the lovely Annie Brewster our former Mayor added an additional £1000 which is simply fantastic!

We are so very grateful to all those who took part, bought a raffle ticket, to the lovely ladies at Chloe James Lifestyle who worked so hard to put this together for us and of course to Annie Brewster who not only modelled on the night but also contributed such a generous amount to the total too.

St Albans people we salute you and on behalf of all those we support, Thank you !!

More events coming up shortly including a concert, another Busking Day on 06 December, plus a simply wonderful World Aids Day exhibition of the ground breaking Stand Tall Get Snapped photography exhibition at St Albans Cathedral for two weeks from the 24th November to 05 December, a stall in the Christmas Market, street collections in December and more, keep watching this space for more news coming soon !!
