Your support wanted to back World Aids Day.

A CHARITY is calling for Coventry and Warwickshire people to help paint the town red to support its AIDS and HIV campaign.

The sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust launched its Stand Up, Stand Out campaign to raise awareness of HIV and to support people living with the virus.

People can help by getting involved in a series of events organised by the charity.

A red ribbon skate will be held on Wednesday November 30 at Coventry Skydome's Planet Ice arena from 8pm until 10pm. People are being encouraged to wear red pants over their clothes to help raise awareness of those living with the illness.

On the same night there will be a World AIDS Day pub quiz at Coventry venue Rainbows, city centre from 8pm.

Charity staff will be handing out free condoms, red ribbons and encouraging people to take part in a sexual health quiz for the chance to win a pounds 20 voucher.

Songs from musicals will be performed at Warwick University's Music Theatre Warwick on December 1 from 7pm until 8pm. A benefit gig will take place in Leamington on the same day from 8pm onwards with live music and a chance to sing with the bands.

The charity will also be in Coventry city centre from 7.30am on December 1 handing out free condoms and red ribbons.
