    1. so I can’t say No to a request now – why? because we should all do as we are told and help pay the salaries of these lazy out of touch care sector fools – well Screw you !

  1. …after all, the THT does have a portfolio of multi-million pound properties across prime central London to maintain!

    1. Does it ? Tell us all.

  2. Does it ?Tell us all.

  3. You can almost guarantee that any of the money raised by this ride will not go to people living with HIV, but to the people on six figure salaries in their rather nice head office in Kings Cross.

  4. In an effort to provide some clarity , the audited accounts for 2012/2013 show that no individual receives a 6 figure salary at THT, even when pension contributions are taken into account.

    86% of the income goes into charitable activities with 5% of the income being retained for future use.

    Charitable activities in their broadest sense include:
    Long term condition management (£5.5million),
    Health improvement (£6.0million) Clinical services (£5.4million)

    Perhaps the debate should be about what areas THT should continue to be involved in – as an example are clinical services such as HIV testing & chlamydia screening legitimate activities for THT to be involved in?

    Just a few thoughts to stimulate debate!

    This money will not go into campaigns that are needed to prevent HIV and correlated problems such as that which is emerging around crystal meth in the UK.

    Everyone who participates in these events are indirectly a part of the problem because you are not researching where the money you raise is going nor the outcomes of THT’s failed HIV prevention policy nor its asset-stripping of HIV client services.
