Students take to catwalk to raise charity cash
Sixth-form students stepped out in style on the catwalk and raised much-needed cash for two worthy causes at Leicester Grammar School this week.
The fashion show, which featured clothing from local stores Branded, of Wigston, and Jelly Rolls, of Stoneygate, Leicester, attracted an audience of 250 people and raised about £1,000.
Half the proceeds will be donated to the British Heart Foundation and the rest will be used to provide new defibrillators for the school.
Lucy Slonecki, the school's external relations officer, said it was the first time such an event had been organised by the Friends Group.

Entitled The Sixth-Form Charity Fashion Show and Shopping Extravaganza, the evening also featured stands by 25 local retailers selling fashion-related items and accessories. The clothes, for both females and males, were modelled by students.
Lucy said: "We would like to thank everyone concerned. It was a very enjoyable evening which raised money for two great causes."
