Buy George a Drink and help support people living with HIV

George House Trust is launching a new fundraising campaign and inviting people to Buy George a Drink.

We want to make it easy to support the work of George House Trust by enabling one off text donations.

The campaign encourages everyone to include George when buying a round of drinks by texting ‘DRINK’ to 70660, which will automatically donate £3 to George House Trust.

Posters will be going up in pubs, clubs, juice bars, tea rooms and coffee shops across the city centre and we want absolutely everyone to get involved, so if you see our posters, whether you’re out for your regular drinks, brunch cocktails or afternoon tea, please text and include George when getting a round in.

We want to increase awareness of the work we do and the more people engage with George House Trust, the more we can educate people about our vision - for all people to know their HIV status and to be HIV aware. The ultimate goal for the campaign is to increase the overall fundraising total and expand presence and awareness of George House Trust so we can ensure all people living with HIV can live happy and healthy lives, free from stigma and discrimination.

CEO of George House Trust, Stephanie Mallas said;

Buy George a Drink is a great, simple way for people to engage with George House Trust and support the work we do. We hope that everyone will include George when they’re out enjoying a drink and we want as many venues as possible to promote the campaign with the aim of making the wider public HIV aware.
