Sir Alex Ferguson, CBE, the longest serving manager in the history of Manchester United, signed a 'Man U' football shirt for HIVsport film competion winners, Brian Mjiyakho and Danny Lurie from Johannesburg, South Africa.
The winning short film, 'Goal for Hope' about the leadership opportunities that Grassroot Soccer and organisations like them can provide, was directed by 19 year old Brian as part of his film directing course. His mentor Danny said, 'It is amazing to see how this project has sparked something special in Brian, he now can't walk down the street without recognising potential film opportunities'.
The award certificates and the coveted red shirt was presented by HIVsport Trustee, Alan Irwin who said, 'I've never had one of these, we need to talk afterwards about how much you will take for it!'. Joking aside, the shirt was worn by Brian in the House of Lords throughout the rest of the day's events.
