We work across Scotland to be there for anyone affected by HIV.


Almost 41 years ago, Terrence Higgins became the UK’s first named person to die of an AIDS-related illness. Although there have been significant treatment advancements for HIV over the years and evidence that attitudes have evolved since the 1980s, stigma, health inequalities, and discrimination are still prevalent in modern society.

In 2020, the Scottish Government announced that Scotland is taking steps to become one of the first countries to eliminate HIV transmissions by 2030. However, the most significant barrier to achieving this in Scotland is the stigma surrounding HIV.

Waverley Care is a charity that supports those affected by and living with HIV. It has been instrumental in helping to challenge HIV stigma and myths by raising awareness of the actual realities of HIV.

That is why we are proud to have partnered with Waverley Care for over three years and have set ourselves a huge challenge – a 95-mile cycle/walk across Hadrian's Wall over three days.

This challenge will take place on Tuesday, 25 July, over three days:

• Day one – cycle (40 miles)

• Day two – walk (20 miles)

• Day three – cycle (35 miles)

Billy, Lisa, Mairi, Quillan and Fiona are undertaking the full challenge. Matt is taking part in day one and three, and Nicola, Gary and Gillian are participating in day two.

Ben is providing vehicle support for the full three days, Matt will be supporting on day two of the walking day, and Gillian will be supporting the team on the cycling days.

We will provide live updates on Twitter with progress along the way.
