Manchester High School for Girls filled with glitz and glamour recently when its annual fundraising fashion show took centre stage, raising money for the school’s Bursary Appeal.
The event raised £6,500 towards the Pankhurst Bursary Fund, launched in 2009 to provide financial support for bright girls whose parents’ financial circumstances would otherwise prevent them from attending the school.
Martha Richardson from Macclesfield was one of the stars of the show. “The run up to the show was hard work and we rehearsed nearly every day. It was fantastic to get done up by professional make-up and hairdressing artists. I felt like a real model! I was really nervous as my family and friends were watching but I think I did ok.”
Headmistress, Claire Hewitt, said: “This is the most successful school fashion show we have ever staged. It was wonderful to see the school community gather together, have such a good time and raise a fantastic amount towards the bursary fund. The funds raised will enable us to continue to support gifted and talented girls who otherwise could not access education at MHSG.”
