    Background: Copenhagen was shaken from its usual Sunday period of quietude Apl 3, when students from the city's University paraded noisily through the streets in a procession of some of the oldest cars in Denmark. For a week they will continue to drive around collecting money for World Refugee Year funds.

    Other Copenhagen students will drive through the city suburbs selling horse-manure for the gardens. If they cannot sell the four car-loads of manure, they intend to sell the cars.

    Challenged to a money-raising contest by students of Lund University, Sweden, the Copenhagen students intend to beat the 109,000 Swedish kroner so far gathered by their 'opponents'.

    Lund University students began their campaign with a tie-auction, for which famous personalities were invited to donate cherished neck-wear.
