Charity's coffers boosted by £2,280 thanks to pupils
BIG-HEARTED pupils have raised more than £2,000 for a Plymouth charity.
The sixth-form youngsters at Plymstock School handed over the bumper cheque to the Drake Foundation after a week of fun-filled charity events.
Deputy head girl Lauren Gale spearheaded the campaign with a fashion show at the school.
It saw 32 models, including 10 teachers and 22 sixth-form students, strut their stuff on the catwalk, built in the main school hall.

It raised more than £300.
The show formed part of the school's annual charity week, which included doughnut eating competitions, sponge-a-teacher sessions, male leg-waxing and a sixth-form quiz.
In total the fundraising week raised about £1,600 for the local charity which supports small voluntary and community groups by providing grants to help their cause.
But it was boosted further by the Community First Fund which took the total to £2,280.
It means that over the years, Plymstock School has boosted the coffers of the Drake Foundation by more than £6,000.
Jeff Maddison, from the Drake Foundation, praised the pupils for their hard work.
He said: "It's fantastic how they use their imagination and creativity to come up with new ways to raise money.
"Aside from the fundraising in the school, we've had people from there run half marathons and do sky dives on our behalf.
"We are very proud of what they do.
"They've contributed to all of the community groups we support."
