Amazing surroundings and a bright and unusually balmy Spring evening helped set the scene for a successful fundraising event at Merchiston School in Edinburgh on 22nd March .
Ruaraidh Drummond a sixth form pupil organised and project managed the event to raise funds for Johari Foundation and raise awarness and sales of the Johari clothing brand. Supported by pupils from St Georges and Merchiston Schools who modelled the clothing and jewellery, Ruaraidh was able to stage a fantastic event.
Drinks and canapes were served on arrival and Willie Watt, Chief Executive of Martin Currie Investment Management and Trustee of Johari Foundation highlighted the role of Johari Foundation in helping to support child education and self sustainability to vulnerable children and young adults in Kenya.
The models looking elegant and stunning in the Johari range as they paraded down the catwalk to the delight of the audience. Afterwards there was the opportunity to purchase items from the Johari sales stand.
The event raised £400 in donations for Johari Foundation and about the same again in Johari sales. A BIG THANK YOU to Ruaraidh, his friends and the school for helping to support Johari Foundation.
