Students impress in charity fashion show

Students from the Co-operative Academy and 9 other Manchester schools took part in the Runway on the Runway fashion extravaganza on Thursday 21st March.

Not only did students open the show, strolling down the catwalk specially built under Concorde, but they had also spent weeks in advance raising money for the three Runway charities: Make A Wish Foundation, Medicare and Teenage Cancer Trust.

The event was well covered by the Manchester Evening News (read their article here), and we are delighted that our students featured on their front page last Friday.
