A fantastic weekend of events, On Friday we managed to get a huge number of commuters to take Red Ribbons to commemorate World Aids Day, also we collected a very substantial sum from those very kind folk during the day. We were honoured to be joined by our new Patron, Alex Mayer MEP who helped collect and distribute ribbons with us in the afternoon.
An article in the Herts Advertiser about our new Patron and our World AIDS day events here http://www.hertsad.co.uk/news/st-albans-hiv-charity-the-crescent-holds-events-for-world-aids-day-1-5302214
Our Busking Day on Saturday was similarly successful, we had many interesting conversations about HIV and the current issues and raised much awareness with over 1000 ribbons distributed on that day alone.
On Sunday our Sausage Sizzle at Bunnings was similarly busy, so much so that we will be back again on 17th December for another Sizzle at Bunnings in Griffiths Way !
A huge thank you to all who helped with the events, performed at the busking day and distributed ribbons. Most importantly thank you to all those who took a ribbon, donated and those who stopped to find out more about HIV and the Crescent’s work
We simply cannot do what we do without you !
Thanks as ever for your support
The Crescent Team
