Fireworks and Champagne Spectacular!

Bonfire night in a field or fireworks and champagne for PEPAIDS? We are excited and delighted to invite you to put on your posh frocks for PEPAIDS on SATURDAY 3RD NOVEMBER and join us for a fabulous evening of dinner, dancing, champagne and fireworks at one of Manchester's newest and most prestigious venues, The Point at Old Trafford Cricket Ground! We have teamed up with two other inspirational Manchester charities to put on a spectacular evening that will make a spectacular difference!


This fantastic event includes... complimentary drinks reception, a superb three course meal, a balcony view for the professional fireworks display with a glass of bubbly in hand, live music throughout the evening and a few surprises along the way.

There will be a chance on the night to hear about and support the work of three fantastic causes

1) PEPAIDS – delivering education and AID's awareness in Zambia

2) CCMM – a frontline homeless project which has relentlessly served the poorest in our community on the streets of Manchester for 12 years.

3) The LifeCentre – A bold project in South Manchester to create the largest community, conference and church facility of its kind in the area.


It promises to be a phenomenal evening, so dust off the dinner jackets and pick out your best posh frock!

Tickets are priced at £49 (plus a small booking fee) and you can buy tickets securely with Credit/Debit Cards/Paypal online right now! In the meantime if you have any queries or comments then please don't hesitate to contact the organizing team

Where There's a Well There's a Way!

george_gardenLast year we told you about George's marvellous medicines that are made by one of our AIDS action clubs in Ngwezi B zone, near Mazabuka, Zambia. The club is run by local farmer and SAPEP volunteer, George, who has trained the group, of HIV positive adults, to help him grow the plants from which they make a variety of herbal medicines and ointments. They use them to manage their own symptoms and sell them to generate an income. The medicines were so effective that local doctors were sending patients to George for treatment. Their nearest water supply was a river 7km away and George and his community positive living club were held back by a lack of water during the dry season. Our dream was to be able to dig them a borehole so that they could have a year-round water supply to keep the garden growing and the income flowing!

Talk the Torch!

Helen-with-Beth-TweddleNominated for her work with PEPAIDS, founder, Helen Allen, carried the Olympic Torch in Chester on Day 11 of the Torch Relay... before continuing with her own little relay around Manchester! Not one to miss an opportunity, Helen's "Touch the Torch" talk went everywhere from schools to blood donation centres and raised over £1500 for PEPAIDS!
