THANK YOU FOR BEING A FRIEND

THANK YOU!

Last week, George House Trust hosted its second 'Friends of George' event, where supporters of the charity were invited to see exactly what had been happening at George House Trust over the past twelve months and also to look at what events are coming up in the next year. The event was held at Lily's Bar, Manchester - a supporter and charity partner of George House Trust.

 

Chair of George House Trust, Jo Hancock and CEO, Stephanie Mallas, gave updates on Pride and World AIDS Day, where so much support for George House Trust was centred around the promotion of the Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) message, the incredible advocacy work that saw every tattooist in Greater Manchester receiving notification from the local authority that it is illegal to refuse to tattoo someone on the basis of their HIV status as well as Manchester mothers living with HIV being given formula milk for the first twelve months after the birth of their child. 

 

Friends of George were entertained by resident Lily's Bar drag performer Coco Pop. Community Fundraising Organiser Samuel Clarke then gave a number of updates, thanking all of the fantastic Friends of George for their continued support. There was also the news that George House Trust will be holding its second Fundraising Gala on Saturday 26th October.

 

The evening was rounded off by Finance Director Neal Sharpe, Services Director Colin Armstead and CEO Steph Mallas presenting the project ambitions for the coming year, which included the continued promotion of the absolutely vital U=U message.

 

It was a lovely evening and a really great opportunity to find out more about what has been happening at George House Trust over the last twelve months.
