A PASSION for fashion has been showcased at Chichester High Schools Sixth Form.

Students took to the stage for the annual charity fashion show last month, after six weeks of preparation.

275 people attended the sell-out event, which raised £2,200 for the sixth form charities, The St. Trizah & the Walk schools in Kenya, St Wilfrid’s Hospice and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Liv Coppin, head girl and Callum Fisher, head boy, organised the two-hour extravaganza of clothes, music and drama.

The event was supported by local businesses, who supplied clothes for students to wear, as well as raffle prizes.

Students entertained guests with performances from year 11 dancers and sixth form band Toiletduck.

Nick Brown, Head of the sixth form, said: “This event was organised by the students from start to finish. Over 100 of them took to the stage, helping behind the scenes, or sorting out raffle prizes and baked cakes. The sense of community in the sixth form is fantastic.

“To see young people helping others and giving up their time is inspiring and I am sure it helped the audience dig a little deeper. We are proud of them all.”

The Chichester High Schools Sixth Form would like to thank the following businesses for their support: After Dark Productions, Chichester Fancy Dress, Oxfam, Moss Bros, British Heart Foundation, Mousetrap, Oasis, Age UK, Edinburgh Woollen Mill, House of Fraser, Tri-iT, Barnardos, St Wilfrid’s, Cancer Research, Game, Set & Match and Scope.
