Students fly to £4,000 charity total at show
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.”
