It’s A Sin has helped educate and engage the nation in discussion about the challenges faced by people living with HIV. It reportedly helped create a spike in HIV testing and generated greater awareness of preventive medication and effective treatments available for people living with HIV.

Bill Puddicombe, Executive Director of the Sussex Beacon said: “We would like to wish Jill and the entire cast of It’s A Sin every success at the BAFTAs on Sunday.

“We’re extremely proud of Jill’s involvement with the Beacon from its earliest days, 30 years ago”.
