Pupils from North Berwick High School have raised hundreds of pounds for charity after holding an eco fashion show.

The show was organised in combination with Bass Rock Community Group (BRCG) and volunteers from Save the Children.

The idea was the brainchild of Valerie McAdam, of BRCG, who formed the original organising group, and she was delighted the event was a success.

Art and design teachers from North Berwick High School Nic Cairns, Fiona McCulloch and Jean Waddell took old, unused and discarded clothes and turned them into dramatic costume masterpieces modelled by the students themselves.

Nic said: “It was an incredible experience and the pupils are still talking about it.”

Clothes from Save the Children’s charity shop and accessories donated by local people were also modelled and available for sale on the night.

The show raised £855, which was split between BRCG, Save the Children and the high school, with the pupils donating the school’s share to Macmillan Cancer Support.

BRCG will use its share to fund local projects and Save the Children will use its portion to continue its child welfare programmes.

Fiona Wells, a volunteer at Save the Children in North Berwick, added: “It was such a fun event which we really enjoyed being involved in.”
