Recycled fashion show is a huge hit again
Students from across North Herts took part in the 23rd annual Recycled Fashion Show at Letchworth’s St Christopher School on Saturday. The catwalk show featured more than 70 costumes designed, made and modelled by pupils from St Francis’ and Wilbury in Letchworth, Baldock’s Knights Templar, Princess Helena in Preston and Whitehill, William Ransom, St Andrew’s and Priory in Hitchin – as well as St Christopher itself.  The overall winner for best costume was Rowan Bazley from St Christopher, with Georgia Owens, also from St Christopher, winning the best use of recycling materials prize for her costume ‘Splash’.  Oisin Stanley-Stephenson from St Christopher won the A-level category, and the GCSE section was won by Knights Templar designer Amy Reid and model Niamh Wase.  Lower school was won by Rosie Semple Jones and Isobel Holt from St Christopher, and juniors was won by Izzy Lambert, David Ingram and Matthew Stancombe from Whitehill.  The costumes will go on show at Letchworth Community Museum on Saturday and from Thursday to Saturday next week – entry is free.

Honour Ainsley

A family are set to mark five years since the death of their 21-year-old son and brother by running five half marathons, starting with the Baldock Beast this Sunday. Sandon’s Jo Charles, 52, and her 25-year-old daughter Imogen are running a half marathon for each year since the tragic death of student sportsman Ainsley Charles in 2012.  They are fundraising for the mental health charity Mind – and they’ll be joined for Sunday’s run by five of Ainsley’s old friends from Baldock’s Knights Templar School, who will wear retro Arsenal shirts as a tribute to the staunch Gunners fan.  Ainsley’s sister Imogen thought of the five half marathon challenge as a way to improve her running and raise money for a worthwhile charity, while also honouring her brother’s memory. She said: “I just want to raise awareness and money so hopefully no-one has to go through this. I miss my brother more than anything. If anyone can wait with a pizza at the end I’d appreciate it.”  Mum Jo added: “Ainsley was a funloving young man, with many plans for the future. If our run raises money, awareness and keeps his memory alive then that’s a great thing. He would be amused by his friends wearing Arsenal shirts!” Joining them for the Baldock Beast will be Ainsley’s old classmates Tom Herring, Sam Booth, James Mayes, Chris Amoss and Ed Moyes. Ainsley, a massive sports fan and formidable all-round athlete, studied sport science at the University of Sunderland. He played football for Baldock Templars and Cambridge.   United’s academy, cricket for Sandon Colts and Strollers, and rugby for the university.  He was found by friends after sadly taking his own life in Sunderland. He has since been honoured in fundraising events at the university, where there is now a sports award in his name.  After the Baldock Beast this

Sunday, the challenge will continue on April 23 when Imogen and Jo run the ABP Southampton Half Marathon, taking in the city where Imogen went to university. On May 7, Imogen and Jo will be joined by Ainsley’s aunt Julie

and uncles Paul, Andrew and Tony for the Sunderland City Half Marathon. A month later, on June 11, the pair will run the St Albans Half Marathon – and finally on September 10 they will go to Newcastle for the Great North Run, with Ainsley’s uncle Paul also taking part. Imogen and Jo have already smashed their £1,000 target with £1,435 raised, including Gift Aid.

Schoolchildren sign a little love with song

Schoolchildren in Letchworth and Baldock raised funds to help those affected by deafness last week by performing a song with associated hand signs. Hundreds of children took part in the national Sign2sing event – organised by deaf health charity SignHealth – at St Christopher School and Knights Templar School.  St Christopher head Richard Palmer told how the whole school had got behind the scheme, with everyone from nursery children to sixth-formers and staff practising the song over two weeks.  He added: “We were delighted to raise money and awareness for this important cause and had great fun along the way.”  At Knights Templar, the classes and Year 7 choir were accompanied by teacher Rachel Thomas on the piano and Year 7’s Edward Stacey on the drums. Collections were made afterwards for SignHealth, with children awarded a special sticker.  Ms Thomas said: “The students really enjoyed singing the song.  Seeing and hearing 220 children all singing and signing together was very powerful and moving.”
