Students take to catwalk in bid to raise thousands
ACHARITY fashion show which sees models strut their stuff on an airport runway is back for another year.
Runway on the Runway is organised in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust and is now in its third year.
Students from Fallibroome Academy, Tytherington High School and the King’s School will be among models from 10 schools taking to the cat- walk at Manchester Airport for the event.
Year 12 students from Fallibroome, who won the Boss Model Management Award for Best Catwalk at last year’s event, are hoping to repeat their success when they take to the catwalk in Sherri Hill dresses.
Pupils at Tytherington High School have been gearing up for the fashion show by their fundraising team organising lots of fun events to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The models, who have been rehearsing their catwalk walk, will be modelling the Michelle Keegan’s Lipsy collection.
The King’s School has taken part in Runway On The Runway ever since it started in 2013, winning the Steve Sutton ‘Thumbs Up’ prize in 2015 for being the best fundraisers.
They will be modelling Mori Lee dresses on the catwalk, involving their own choreography.
The show will also include 10 inspirational young girls who have recovered from or are going through cancer treatment, and who will share their stories about their time with cancer.
The theme of this year’s event is ‘Prom’, with students modelling some of the best high street and designer prom dresses, including Ted Baker, Debenhams, Lipsy, Sherri hill, Benefit and Trevor Sorbie Salons.
In 2015 the second Run- way on the Runway fashion show raised more than £40,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust and organisers had set a new target of £50,000 for this year’s event.
Margo Cornish, who lives in Prestbury and runs the event, said: “Providing age appropriate care is vital in supporting young people with cancer and our event is a great way of raising awareness of the work of the Teenage Cancer Trust here in the North West. I am very proud of all the hard work that is put in by all our fashionable fundraising students.”
The event, sponsored by Thomas Cook Airlines, our sister paper the Manchester Evening News and Smooth Radio, takes place on Friday, March 31. For tickets go to www.runway ontherunway.co.uk.
