Fashion Show Raises Money for Meningitis Trust

A grand sum of £1,500 was raised for the Meningitis Trust at the Bolton School Fashion Show. The show, where models from Years 7 to 13 exhibited, ran in December 2008 and money raised went to the Meningitis Trust and to The Watoto Children's Project in Uganda.

The Fashion Show had been organised by Sophie Radcliffe and Barbie Ikin, two Sixth Form students, as they wanted to do something in memory of their good friend, Daniel Whelan, who had tragically had his life taken from him in the summer of 2008. Daniel, who had just completed his A Levels at Bolton School, had been holidaying with a group of friends in Benalmadena when he contracted Meningitis B.

The Watoto Project, another beneficiary from the event, had been a charity that Daniel had been particularly close to.
