We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been awarded £1,985 to help stage the annual World AIDS Day Candlelight Vigil & Reading Of Names. The event which is held on World AIDS Day December 1st is a public remembrance of people who have been lost to AIDS locally, and an expression of hope and solidarity for those who live with HIV/AIDS.
Funding has been awarded by the Community Development Fund through the Communities First Queen’s Park Ward Programme and will be spent on providing equipment to stage the vigil, improving wheelchair access and promoting the event.
Lunch Positive supports World AIDS Day events as a member of the Brighton & Hove World AIDS Day Partnership which is formed from a wide range of local charities and organisations which include the Sussex Ecumenical HIV Chaplaincy, Sussex Beacon, THT South, CDO Sussex and Brighton & Hove City Council Community Safety Team.
