Our next event will be another of our popular Busking days. It will take place on Saturday 15th August at the clock tower in St Albans from 1030 am to 4pm.
Once again a whole host of local musicians have generously donated their free time and fantastic talents to busk for us all day, help raise awareness and funds for us.
It promises to be as ever a very entertaining day and one not to be missed ! We are immensely grateful to all those who have offered to donate their time and energy to help out and of course to all those wonderfully talented people who will be performing on the day. More details of the line up in the poster below, please do come along to this free event, we are sure you will enjoy it!
Grateful thanks to Denise Parsons for organising the musicians and to the wonderful people at The Boot St Albans for providing the Gazebo again this year!
Thanks as ever for your continued support,
The Crescent Team
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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

See here for details of our instant result and postal home sampling HIV testing services – another free service from the Crescent. Email email@example.com or see http://www.thecrescent.org.uk/index.php/testing/appointments/ for more details or make an appointment.
Yesterday we were on the Roberto Perrone show on BBC3Counties radio talking about why we feel the home testing kits now on sale may not be suitable for all when testing for HIV. We feel without appropriate support this could potentially have serious consequences for some due. Listen again on the following link, we are on from 2hrs 19 mins http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02p67ls
Thanks as ever for your support, hope to see you on our open day on 06 June, all welcome !!
