Model Students Strut For Malawi

Wednesday 10 November 2010


Students at The Grammar School at Leeds will take to the fashion runway for a night in aid of Malawi.

The fashion extravaganza, Strut For Malawi, will be based around the theme Cirque du Soleil and will include circus acts, gymnastic displays and live music.

Boys and girls from the sixth form and year 11 will model a selection of day and evening wear on loan from Mint Couture of Wetherby and Leeds stores Ted Baker and Vicky Martin.  Make up will be created by sixth form drama student Georgina Sherman.

One of the organisers, U6 student Maisie Richardson, said: “We are planning an evening of fun, fashion and glamour…with a few surprises thrown in!  All proceeds will go to charitable causes in Malawi and we are really grateful to everyone who has pledged their support to make the evening a success.”

The event, to be held in the school’s assembly hall on Wednesday, November 24, is now in its third year and has raised £5000 so far.  This year’s organisers are hoping to boost that figure by a further £3000.  VIP tickets, with reserved seats in the front rows and a goody bag, cost £10, while standard tickets are £8.
