KRUSH: Kingsland Road/High St United Support for HIV services
Bringing together local East London businesses to support Positive East
Fri 16th Aug – Sun 18th Aug 2019
KRUSH is an annual fundraising event involving the generous participation of bars, pubs, clubs, restaurants, cafés, bakeries, salons and shops along Kingsland Road/High St to raise awareness of HIV and support the work of East London’s HIV charity – Positive East.
In August 2019, these businesses will rally together to support in lots of different ways. Whether it’s donating a portion of their door fees, making a donation from their proceeds, dedicating a dish/drink from the menu as a donation or hosting one of our collection tins, they’re all doing their part to support our work. All donations raised over the KRUSH weekend will be used to sustain our HIV services for the local East London community.
So call your friends & family and make plans to grab a drink or a meal, buy some bread, treat yourself, stay the night (why not a combination?) at these incredible businesses between 16th and 18th August! Show some love – help us KRUSH HIV stigma this August! It’s going to be a fantastic weekend!
If you would like to list your business to support KRUSH, please contact Alex Foott.
