University students in brilliant Aids Day stunt

14 Dec 2009

 A group of Kingston University graphics design students came up with an original and eye-catching idea for raising awareness - and money - for World Aids Day.

 They formed the '8 Second Band' to draw attention the fact that someone in the world is infected with HIV every 8 seconds. 

The band - in snazzy, American marching-band uniforms - matched around central London and raised around £1,000.

Being good graphic design students they not only looked stylish but also shot and edited a great video. Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6jh656NRwQ  It's great.

P.S. I am biased as my younger daughter was one of the marchers.
