World Aids Day, 2018

Christchurch Pride supports the aims of the New Zealand Aids Foundation (NZAF) and their mission of preventing the transmission of HIV and providing support for people living with HIV, their partners and whānau. We understand that this disease has a huge impact on not just the LGBTQIA+ community, but also the country as a whole, as well as the stigma surrounding those living with HIV. With global events like World Aids Day, it shows that we are willing to talk about diseases like this out in the open and gain the support of both the country and the world in preventing the transmission of HIV.

To show our support for World Aids Day 2018 we put together a Bingo evening at the fabulous venue ‘Sixty6’. Alongside our sponsors, we achieved an outstanding $4211! We were extremely thankful to Spark who donated $1000 – in which we got an iPhone 8 to raffle off alongside the bingo evening. We had the gorgeous Aunty Pipi and friends dropping their balls for a hilarious evening all round.

We look forward to our continuing relationship with the NZAF and would like to thank them for their continued support of Christchurch Pride.

We would also like to give a huge shoutout to all the amazing businesses and organisations that kindly donated items & vouchers for the bingo evening. Without our sponsors, this would not have been possible.
