Wonderful News From The Cathedral and Abbey Church of St Albans

Dear all,

Fantanstic news !! The Cathedral have made a substantial donation to the Save The Crescent Fund !! We are very pleased to receive such a kind and generous gift and this is a great start to our fundraising appeal.

This means we will be able to restart more services sooner than expected to help those living with, or affected by HIV, in the Diocese. This along with several other generous donations from local people, and from further afield, is helping us maintain our much needed services.

The Crescent on behalf of their members would like to express their heartfelt thanks for this donation which is a great start to our forthcoming fundraising event. We are now looking forward to the concert on 22nd of February which we expect will be a great success, and hope will bring more much needed funds for our service.

Tomorrow there will be an article in the Hertfordshire Advertiser about the benefit concert on 22nd Feb, details of which we will post here shortly.

Thanks once again to the Cathedral and of course to all of you providing us with such wonderful support!

Best wishes

The Crescent Team

Peter Tatchell Joins The Fight To Save The Crescent

Dear all,

The Human Rights Campaigner Peter Tatchell has released this statement in support of the Crescent;

“I’m surprised and shocked that the funding has been cut and awarded to another service provider, apparently without public consultation or open tendering. This looks unethical. I hope the council will give a full explanation and reconsider its decision,”

More articles to follow this week, keep watching this space!

Thanks for your support
