RGU fashion show raises over £14,000 for ARCHIE

Jun '12
Fashion Management students from Robert Gordon University (RGU) have raised over £14,000 for The ARCHIE Foundation, following their successful "Best of British" fashion show and fundraising efforts.

The RGU fashion show, this time organised by fourth year Fashion Management students to raise money for The ARCHIE Foundation, has established itself as a significant occasion in Aberdeen's fashion and charity event calendar.

The 400 strong audiences celebrated the very best of British style and culture with a fashion show, live music and classic British foods including fish and chips, cupcakes and 99 ice-cream cones.

The fashion show featured eight themed walks, each highlighting some of the best aspects of Britain including, the British seaside, countryside, music, sport, people, designers, royals and the traditional tea party.

The Fashion Management students surpassed last years huge £11,000 donation to The ARCHIE Foundation, by not only hosting the renowned fashion show but also carrying out a whole host of fundraising events, from sports walks to pub crawls and bake sales to bucket shaking.

Best of British Fashion Show 1Gail Gordon, Community Fundraiser at The ARCHIE Foundation said, "We're absolutely delighted with the huge amount raised from The Best of British Fashion Show and additional fundraising activities facilitated by the students. The event was fantastically organised and we had a truly entertaining evening. The money raised will help make such a difference to sick children and their families when they really need it most."

The ARCHIE Foundation is the official charity of the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital, the Children's Wards in Inverness and Elgin and Community based Child Health throughout Grampian, Highland, Orkney and Shetland. Donations given to the charity go directly towards 'Making the difference' for 100,000 local sick children and their families everyday.
