Terrence Higgins Trust in Coventry is holding a candle-lit vigil on World AIDS Day, December the 1st. The vigil gives local people the opportunity to support the cause and remember those affected by HIV and AIDS, in particular those who have died. It will take place at 6pm under the canopy in Broadgate, Coventry city centre.
The vigil will include a reading of names of those who have died and will be followed by an interfaith service in Coventry Cathedral which starts at 7pm.
Tina Prashar, Regional Manager for Terrence Higgins Trust in the Midlands said “HIV and AIDS have been around for 25 years now and many people have lost partners, family or friends to it. Thankfully, the treatments available today mean deaths from AIDS related illnesses are now quite rare in the UK. However, this is an opportunity to remember those who have died and others across the World who may be suffering.”
