Macclesfield Express - - NOS­TAL­GIA - IZZIE FARE­BROTHER

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 to­way on­therun­
