HIV Programme Urges Supporters to Get 'All Tied Up'

Friday November 30 2018


The Church of Scotland HIV Programme has launched a new fundraising initiative called All Tied Up.

Launched to coincide with World AIDS Day tomorrow (December 1), the campaign urges people to wear red shoelaces (available for a donation), to get together with friends and organise a sponsored walk.

There is also a quiz, in which supporters are asked to identify the various places around Scotland in which the red laces are photographed; and the Rt Rev Susan Brown, Moderator of the General Assembly, has written a prayer for those living with or affected by HIV.

Around 37 million people around the world live with HIV. The Church of Scotland HIV Programme, run by the World Mission Council, supports over 18 projects in 13 countries in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Caribbean, as well as two projects in Scotland. The supported projects offer practical help, solidarity and support, and combat the stigma still faced by people with HIV and AIDS.

You can order the shoelaces and resources by emailing, take part in the quiz and hear from a minister who attended the International AIDS Conference in the latest World Mission Magazine, or find out more at the HIV Programme website.
