Hi all,

The fantastic Stand Tall Get Snapped has reached Brighton and will be running at the Brighton Dome from this Monday (24th February) until Saturday 08 March in conjunction with the Sussex Beacon.

As you may recall if you have been following us for some time, the exhibition of 30 different people living with HIV features Crescent members. We have been part of the project since launch in December 2012 at the Reading Rooms in Soho and has been to Manchester and Glasgow most recently.

Spring Basket A Resounding Success Yesterday !

Hi All,

The annual Spring Basket event held with the Diocese HIV Support Group was again a huge success, we filled Homewood Road Church Hall with household goods and clothes, then filled the hall with people living with or affected by HIV who made the most of what was on offer!

This year thanks to a few late comers we completely cleared the hall, everything went ! A huge thank you to Susan Roberts and everyone involved with the Diocese group who made the event such a success again this year.

Please help save the Crescent, we care about those affected by HIV in Hertfordshire and beyond!
