Scouts in Skegness swapped their woggles and uniform for a more unusual array of costumes during a fashion show held recently in aid of third world farmers.

The charitable young fashionistas spent £62 on clothes from the Skegness Oxfam shop, which they proudly modelled on the catwalk during their own version of London Fashion Week .

Scout leader Sylvia Myers said: “The scouts had been learning all about the work Oxfam does as part of their Global Challenge and decided to raise some much needed funds in a fun way.”

The event raised £106 through a raffle and home made cake sale held during the interval, which will enable Oxfam to purchase a goat, a sheep, training for a farmer, clean drinking water, a well maintenance kit and mosquito nets.

Each of the scouts took on the various roles required for the show including, models, stagehands, dressers and musical directors. The clothes modelled in the show were donated back to Oxfam after the event along with more they had collected from their families.
