HIV charity Positive East benefits from photography exhibition
HIV charity Positive East raised �1,500 after photographer Alan Day donated a collection of his pictures for sale.
The photos were sold at a fundraising exhibition on March 31 and will be exhibited at Positive East until April 22.
Alan, a long-term supporter of the charity, said: “I just wanted to have some fun and throw a party for the people I know work tirelessly to help our community.
“Local organisations like Positive East are at the heart of our community. They support the individuals often most in need. Therefore it is imperative we do not let these spending cuts impinge on the wonderful services they provide.”
HIV is particularly prevalent in East London because of the higher number of people in ‘at risk’ groups. Positive East provides advice to sufferers and helps people access education and housing.

The charity is paid for almost entirely by the eight East London boroughs it covers. Fundraiser Mark Butcher said it was likely government spending cuts would reduce much of its income.
