The excellent London HIV charity The Food Chain, who I volunteer for and who deliver meals out of a kitchen in Bermondsey, is one of four London finalists in the UK-wide National Lottery Awards. Please take a few moments to read about TFC and, if you like what they do, vote for them:
This is a great opportunity to remind people that supporting those living with HIV is still necessary, that there is still huge need out there and that services like TFC's make a real difference to people's lives. If an HIV organisation wins this award then it sends a message to all those living with the virus, especially those who are most isolated and scared, that the public really does care about them and that we can talk louder than prejudice and fear.
