Fundraising pupils take inspiration from Gaga
PUPILS from Badminton Junior School in Westbury- on-Trym have given more than £1,600 to the Children's Hospice South West in Wraxall.
The children raised the substantial sum by holding a fashion show where they designed outfits based on a recycling theme.
Girls aged three to 11 designed costumes using recycled materials including plastic bags, newspaper, bottle tops, old clothes and packaging. Influences for the girls' designs ranged from Lady Gaga to Kate Moss.
The Trashion Show was compered by Heart FM presenter, Paulina Gillespie from the Bush, Troy and Paulina Morning Show and attracted more than 250 people.
