FUNDRAISE FOR US
Holding a fundraiser is not only a great way to raise cash for a great cause, but also raises awareness of HIV. Could you hold a cake sale or a non-uniform day at work? Are you a local bar or restaurant that wants to host a fundraising night? If so, get in touch. We can provide collecting tins and red ribbons to support your fundraising efforts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 274 4499.
