FASHION shows and treasure hunts are helping a school in a bid to raise £10,000 for charity.

Kate Hills, deputy head girl at Portsmouth High School, was a childhood friend of Hannah Westbrook who died in 2004 aged 10 of Hodgkin’s disease.

Now Kate, 17, wants to make a difference to Hannah’s Holiday Home, the charity Hannah’s family set up in her memory, in the year that would have been her 18th birthday.

On the evenings of December 1 and December 2 the school, in Kent Road, Southsea, will host two fashion shows with the girls modelling outfits from big names such as L K Bennett, and New Look and local shops such as Preview, Hideout and Bored.

Kate said: ‘Each year the school supports a different charity and Hannah’s Holiday Home is a charity I’m really pasionate about.

‘We are also holding a pupil teacher talent show, a Harry Potter day and a treasure hunt.’

Fashion show tickets cost £8.50.
