- Celebrities put their names to National Condom Week
DJ Sara Cox, comedy actor Martin Clunes and So Solid Crew's MC Squami are the trio of celebrities chosen to lead National Condom Week which starts today.
The idea of the week is to raise the safe sex banner, especially for young people who are seen as one of the most vulnerable groups to sexually transmitted diseases. Apart from the on-going AIDS problem, chlamydia is the disease giving most cause for concern as it has seen a reported 140% increase in people affected over the last six years.
Condom manufacturer Durex is to donate 50p to AIDS charity the Terrence
Higgins Trust on every packet of its wares sold through Superdrug.
