The "BEACON OF HOPE" and "TREE OF LIFE" is dedicated to all those who have lost their lives to HIV/AIDS and those living with and affected by the virus. The Beacon is a permanent awareness of the threat of HIV/AIDS to every individual person.
This project has been made possible thanks to the generous contributions from:
Black HIV & AIDS forum; Body Positive North West; Clone Zone; Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund; George House Trust; Lesbian & Gay Foundation; Lifeline Project; Manchester City Council; Manchester Health Authority; Manchester Lesbian & Gay Mardi Gras; Massow Financial Consultants; Sackville Park Project; The Trafford Centre; The Village Project; the Village enterprises who have held fundraising events for this project, and not least all the customers who have supported this project.
THE TREE OF LIFE
This TREE was planted by the Lord Mayor and the Lady Mayoress on behalf of the Village charity, in memory of those lost to
World AIDS day 1st December 1993
This area surrounding the TREE was improved in the summer of 2000 as part of the BEACON OF HOPE project. The Beacon of Hope was designed by Warren Chapman and Jesse Byrne-Daniel.
