Vicki Harvey, head of creative and performing arts at the college, said: “We are really excited about the fashion show; the students have worked so hard to make it a successful and an enjoyable event

“We hosted a show for EACH in 2014 and whilst that was fabulous, we want this year’s event to be even bigger and better.

“We are lucky to have been supported by a number of local businesses and with Ruthie, Wayne and Jade all playing a part in hosting and entertaining our audience, I am sure we can raise even more money this year.
