Pink hair helps pro bono law work

Published: 21 March 2012

Undergraduates from the Southampton Law School have beaten students from throughout the UK in a contest to raise as much money as possible for legal charities that aid people who cannot afford legal representation.

‘The Soton Justices’ won the Law School Challenge and beat 30 other teams by raising £1,572 in four months for Lawworks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) and the Bar Pro Bono Unit.

A highlight of the fundraising involved Kristian Foged dying his hair bright pink; donors paid for the privilege of choosing the colour.

The other members of the team were Roberto Kehinde, Stevie Vella, Lavan Thasarathakumar and Lyndsey Banthorpe.

“Well done to our students and thanks to everyone who supported them,” says Professor Natalie Lee, Head of the Southampton Law School.
