Notorious Dunedin street gets extreme makeover to honour killed student

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

A street synonymous with student partying was given an extreme tidy-up by those honouring one of their own.

Sophia Crestani, 19, was killed in a stairway pile-up during a party last year.

In July, her Wellington-based parents launched The Sophia Charter, which included agencies working on a range of measures, including cracking down on large parties and reducing rubbish in the area.

Crestani’s family called for a mass cleanup of the student quarter following her death, and that was again repeated on Friday at noon.

Hundreds of students, armed with rubber gloves, brooms, and rubbish bags took to the student quarter.

Crestani's childhood friend Emily Jenner, 20, said the cleanup, which centred around the notorious student hotspot of Castle St, was about '’putting the charter into action''.
