Stu­dents fly to £4,000 char­ity to­tal at show

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

STU­DENTS at King’s School took to the cat­walk to put on a fash­ion show for char­ity.

Sixth For­m­ers spent weeks preparing for their an­nual show, which had the theme Come Fly With Me.

They en­listed the help of fash­ion shops to do­nate clothes for jet­ting off to sum­mer des­ti­na­tions.

The sell-out event raised a record of more than £4,000 for The Christie Hos­pi­tal, with a £250 do­na­tion from Jaguar Land Rover boost­ing the to­tal.

Model and or­gan­iser Lucy Miller, 17, from Gawsworth said: “The six week lead-up and the seem­ingly end­less hours of prepa­ra­tion proved there is more to the fash­ion in­dus­try than merely look­ing good for an hour.”

Hayleigh McCul­lough, 17, from Mac­cles­field, thanked shops which pro­vided clothes.

She said: “We want to thank John Dou­glas, Quiz, Marks & Spencer, SOS, Pure, Sorella and Jane’s Ex­change for their gen­er­ous do­na­tion of clothes for the event. They were fan­tas­tic.”

Or­gan­iser Jamie Macgregor, King’s Head of Eco­nomics, said: “The team showed re­silience, ded­i­ca­tion and great col­lab­o­ra­tive skills to make this a truly mem­o­rable event.”
