Alumnae support for Sixth Form charity project

Sixth Form charity ambassadors, with alumnae support, last week hosted their first ever second-hand clothes boutique. All proceeds went to KLS.

Upper Sixth pupils Kayla Gal and Isabelle Samuels organised The FHS Thrift Boutique in aid of Katherine Low Settlement (KLS). Tuesday afternoon saw the OSH transformed into a second-hand clothes store, with rails of clothing donated by parents, staff, independent fashion designers and two FHS alumna, Natalija Jovasevic and Zerafina Parbury. Owing to its popularity, the boutique has remained open every day, with Sixth Form pupils getting exclusive access to the sale on Tuesday, and other year groups, including staff, following suit throughout the week. With special thanks to Natalija Jovasevic, who returned to school for the first time since she left in 2015 to donate clothing, and speak with event organisers Kayla and Isabelle.

Happily, sales have exceeded all expectations with £650 being raised, all of which will be donated to KLS. Representatives from the charity visited the store at its opening on Tuesday, expressing their thanks to the Sixth Formers for organising the event.
