Pupils are raising money for the Florence Nightingale Hospice by staging a ‘through the decades’ fashion show modelling clothes they find at the charity’s shops.

Pictured from left to right are participants Lucia Bizos in 50’s style, Kate Sloane in 80’s clothes and Orla Lavery in 70’s costume.

Livi Spurrell, who is helping to arrange the event, said: “In this age of austerity, and the rise of ‘chazzing’ (charity shopping) our show aims to demonstrate just how stylish charity shop fashion can be.

“The clothes will be styled according to five different decades, the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and the noughties and modelled by our very own students, with some help from the boys from Aylesbury Grammar School too.

“The Florence Nightingale Hospice is all about supporting and helping local people, and this is what we are hoping to do through this event.

“By helping to raise money for this deserving cause, we can ensure the Florence Nightingale Hospice can continue to fund the £600,000 it needs each year to keep these essential services up and running.”

Hospice spokeswoman Sam Heggie said: “Everything about the event from the publicity, marketing and production, to the fashion and the hospitality, is organised by the students.

“This is our sixth annual fashion show in partnership with Aylesbury High School, so we’re very much looking forward to working with the girls again.

“The event promises to be a wonderful night of fashion and entertainment.

“There’ll be a few surprises in store for guests on the night too.”

The fashion show takes place on Friday from 7pm.
