For the second year running the NHST is taking part in the World AIDS Day Red Run, this year our team includes co-founder and Chair Paul and Committee members Dan, Ed and James.
We’re also honoured to be joined by our recent interviewee and our nominated ‘Community Hero’ Frankie O’Reilly.
Your support will help the NHST as we work to secure the stories of the AIDS pandemic and use them for educational purposes, ensuring they are never forgotten.
Date: 26th Nov 2022
Location: Victoria Park, East London, E9 5EG
Why walk/run for the NHST?
The NHST films, records and preserves the stories of those affected by the AIDS pandemic of the 1980s and 90s. We are staffed entirely by volunteers and need to raise funds to fulfil our aims, including providing educational outreach, creating materials, a conference on ageing and supporting arts and cultural projects.
The NHST hopes the 120+ interviews we have filmed with survivors and families, partners and medical professionals will be a voice for those who didn’t survive, a chance to honour those who did, and an education for those who live so freely today.
