Earlier in the year we were amazed and truly honoured to have been nominated for the above award by the Bishop of St Albans and we are now very pleased to announce that we have been successful.
The attached press release gives more details on the award which is the highest award a voluntary organisation can receive in the UK, described as the MBE for a voluntary organisation.
None of this would have been possible without your support and of course the hard work and dedication of our team of volunteers. We, on behalf of those we support, would like to thank you all very much and hope that you will continue to support us as we still need your help as much as ever.

As ever thank you all for your continued support, we really couldn’t do all we do without you.

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
