JLS support safer sex message
19 September 2011
Chart-topping boyband JLS promoted the importance of safer sex in reducing sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies during a visit to a local youth centre today.
They met young people at the Lancaster Road Youth Club in Ladbroke Grove where staff from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s John Hunter Clinic run a community outreach service.
Their visit celebrated the success of the band’s Durex Just Love Safe condoms—band members don’t make any money out of the sale of the condoms with all proceeds going to the JLS Foundation so donations can be made to charities.
Nurse Practitioner Kate Cook, who runs the John Hunter Clinic community outreach service at the Lancaster Road Youth Club, said: “JLS are doing a great job promoting the safer sex message to young people. Their commitment to this work is making a real difference.”
