A fashion show has been held to raise money for Team Charlie

Tutors at a Higham school have helped to raise more than £1,000 for charity by staging a fashion show.

The Gads Hill school teachers paraded in front of nearly 100 female parents, pupils and friends of Gad’s on a specially constructed catwalk in the independent school’s hall, modelling a range of outfits provided by national clothing company Travelling Trends.

Money raised from the event, totalling £1,100, went to Team Charlie, a fundraising charity set up in memory of a much-loved pupil.

After the show, guests were able to browse and buy the high street clothes at discounted rates, as well as enter a raffle with all prizes donated by supporters of Team Charlie.

PE teacher Mrs Jago, who organised the event alongside parent and friend of Gad’s Mrs Booth, said: “We hold lots of fundraising activities, trips and events but this was by far the most glamorous to date!

“None of our efforts would come to fruition without the continued support of the many parents, staff and children of Gad’s and I am so grateful and proud of their commitment and dedication.”
