Description Edit | History

User Summary

Inspired by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure's Band Aid project, Rod Cousens of UK software house Quicksilva organised Soft Aid.

Many publishers offered games and compilations were released for the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 with 10 games each, with profits going to the Band-Aid Trust. Each tape also included a copy of the "Do They Know It's Christmas?" single.

Of the £4.99 asking price, about £3 per sale went to Band-Aid (the price also included 75p sales tax).

In 1986, UK ZX Spectrum magazine Crash reported that Soft Aid "became the longest running No 1 chart success of last year, and was probably the highest selling game title ever", raising over £350,000 for Band-Aid.
