Food bank and STI testing @ Townhouse

We want to give something back to our local community, so we have decided to set up a food bank drop off point. We have placed a food dumpster in the corner of the corridor heading outside to the smoking area. It’s got a big sign saying Food Bank so you can’t really miss it! lol If you would like to donate food, then they accept non perishable foods and food with a long use by date. So tinned foods, dried foods and cereals are perfect. I will be making regular visits to our local food bank with you donations and they will go to good use.

The food bank was set up last week and already we have our first full dumpster to go off….so if you have already donated, thank you šŸ™‚

We also have an STI drop in planned for 17th Oct from 8pm until 9/9.30pm. The Terrence Higgins Trust will be providing the testing and pre test couselling. They can test for Chlamydia, Gonorrohea and HIV. If you would like to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to get tested them just come along; you don’t need to be a member to be tested.

We will be offering drop in clinics every month on different nights, so keep an eye on the blog for updates.

If you are a regular swinger, it is adviseable to get tested for STI’s every 3 months.

    • Hi Deborah
      It went so well!!!! The uptake was amazing and the Terrence Higgins guys didn’t leave until 1.15am! They worked their socks off to ensure that everyone who wanted to be tested, got tested! Emma at THT said that she had never had such a huge uptake from one venue ever, which was so great to hear. We are running this again on 23rd Nov and we are going to agree a date in December, making it a regular monthly drop in service šŸ™‚ I’d be happy to chat to you more about the survey, just get in touch
      Vicky xx
