Year 12 students from St George's Academy, Sleaford, have raised £260.

Students joined together to raise more than £250 for poorly youngsters in Lincolnshire.

As part of a work experience project, Year 12 pupils from St George’s Academy, Sleaford, organised a fashion show to raise money for Andy’s, the county’s only children’s hospice.

Kerry Brown, Daisy Hall, Courtney Luther, Leah Winson, Mason Mansfield, Charlotte Hancock and Jacob Brunt took just one week to bring the event to fruition, working alongside Andy’s Sleaford shop manager Deborah Homer.

The teenagers hand-picked a selection of clothes from the store, as well as donating many of their own, which went on display on the catwalk.

They also approached local businesses to gather a variety of raffle prizes for the event, which was held at the academy in July and attended by parents, residents and hospice representative ZaZa Warren.

ZaZa said: “It was a pleasure to work with such enthusiastic and bright young people. They knew exactly how they wanted the evening to go and worked well as a team to pull it off.

“They demonstrated their skills in time management, teamwork and commitment, and should be very proud of themselves. This event has helped raise the profile of the children’s hospice within the local area”

Their donation of £260 has now been presented to the hospice, and was accepted by ZaZa.

The group added: “It was really fun organising the event, working as a team but having full responsibility of the show.  We are so happy with the amount we raised for Andy’s.”
