On the catwalk

Pupils at Rice Lane Infants and Nursery in Liverpool created a fashion show and unique t-shirt designs to raise money for the Red Cross Hundred2Hundreds campaign.
The Walton school has a history of winning enterprise competitions, previously receiving the top prize at Global Entrepreneurship Congress 2012.
The school’s fundraising efforts were seed funded by £100 from the British Red Cross which ended with the 7-year-old pupils giving professional catwalk models a lesson in walking and posing with hands on hips showing the latest in children’s fashion tee shirts, raising a total of £771.25.
British Red Cross project Hundred2Hundreds was introduced by Cllr Gary Millar to Liverpool primary schools following his meeting with Tina Robinson and Clare Henderson from the British Red Cross at his business clinic drop-in session in Central Library.
The Red Cross offered Gary £4000 for up to 40 enterprise projects (£100 each) delivered across Merseyside by young people and Rice Lane Infants and Juniors Primary School were the first to sign up and receive their £100 “seed fund”.
Councillor Millar said: “Working with the Red Cross was a fantastic opportunity to inspire an enterprise culture in our schools.
“We can use the Hundred2Hundreds project to stimulate team-work, create great business ideas, help our local communities and raise money for those most in need.
“Rice Lane’s fashion show was professional and fun. Their fundraising summed up exactly why I love this amazing city.”
