Our latest article now published on PositiveLite

Dear all,

We have published another update on PositiveLite illustrating our latest endeavours, including the marvellous event at Boots in St Albans with Elizabeth Arden, and details of the fantastic QAVS award too.

A link to the article on how we have managed to keep afloat since funding ceased is here http://positivelite.com/component/zoo/item/when-an-aids-service-organization-loses-its-funding-how-does-it-survive

As you can see we are so reliant upon your support to keep our service going, without you we simply cannot do what we do, so thanks to you all.

We hope to see you at our next events, open day 03 September and a sausage sizzle at Bunnings Lyons Way St Albans on the 14th October, more to follow…

Best wishes

Crescent Open Day & Queen’s Award For Voluntary Service 25 September 2016

Dear all,

Sorry it has been so long since we updated our blog, so much has been happening it has been hard to keep everything updated. If you were worried we may have gone away then fear not we are here !

An amazing parachute jump by our Mayor Salih and Trustee Denise, another of our successful busking days and numerous lunches and social events have all taken place in the last three months!

Coming up this month we are looking forward to our open day and garden party on 25 September.

The day will follow the same format as previous years with live music from local bands, tea, cake and other lovely refreshments plus beer, wine and cider. It will give you a chance to ask questions, talk to staff, see our premises in Russell Avenue and find out more about our work in the community.

Free entry as usual (although donations are always welcome of course) starting at 2pm on Sunday 25 September, all are welcome of course so please do call in to see us.

We are also honoured earlier this year to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (one of only three organisations in Hertfordshire to receive the award from her Majesty) The award is the highest a charity can achieve in the UK and is the MBE for Voluntary Organisations.

As part of the open day proceedings we will be officially presented with the award certificate signed by Her Majesty and the engraved crystal trophy by Her Majesty’s representatives.

It promises to be a great day so please do come along ! Once we have a complete list of acts performing we will update you so keep watching this space.

Thanks as ever for your support,

The Crescent Team
