Marking World AIDS Day together
19 Nov 2019
World AIDS Day will take place on Saturday, 1 December and for several years we've raised thousands of pounds for this important cause
Once again ALLOUT LGBT staff network, Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff network and the Disability Staff Network (DSN) are collaborating to raise money for those communities impacted by the disease.
This year we are supporting the National AIDS Trust and every pound counts:
- £30 helps them keep online information sharing tool Looped In up to date, improving public knowledge and informing conversation around HIV.
- £70 allows them to keep our teaching resources updated and ensure education institutes can access and use them for free.
- £100 makes sure they can keep fighting to ensure PrEP (the HIV prevention drug) is available free to everyone who needs it.
- £200 helps them fight discrimination, taking on cases and challenging injustice wherever we see it.
Collection tins and red ribbons are already available at the following locations:
- Roscoe - Staff Learning 5th Floor
