A busking event to raise money for a St Albans based HIV charity will take place on Saturday.

As organised by Denise Parsons of the Trestle Arts Base, a group of city musicians have pledged their support for The Crescent, during a street collection event outside the Clock Tower from 10.30am.

Since funding was withdrawn from the Crescent in Russell Avenue by Hertfordshire County Council in June 2011 volunteers have continued to run the charity through their own money and donations.
