We have some exciting news to share… Prince Harry is coming to Leicester on Tuesday 21st March. As part of his visit Prince Harry will be visiting Leicestershire Aids Support Service (LASS) along with 2 other projects. Moneywise Plus is based at LASS and has been invited to this fantastic opportunity.
LASS, the HIV charity for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. LASS provides information, advice, support and advocacy services for people who are living with or affected by HIV, and also raises HIV awareness through training and workshops. The charity, which Diana, Princess of Wales, visited in 1991, also works in partnership with other local agencies to challenge the stigma and discrimination faced by people living with HIV. On arrival Prince Harry will join a discussion with LASS service users affected by HIV, and attend a training session with the charity’s partner organisations (including Moneywise Plus) to examine how they can support people affected by HIV to lead happy, healthy lives. His Royal Highness will then meet service users and volunteers over lunch in the LASS canteen, before unveiling a commemorative plaque to mark the charity’s 30th birthday.
