Students travel back in time

Travel and tourism students took a journey back to the 1990s today to raise cash for a cancer charity.

The 90s day was the idea of travel and tourism BTEC diploma students and their challenge was to live their day in that era. This meant no computers, no mobile phones or hair straighteners, no internet or Facebook and they could only listen to music and dress in fashions from that era.

All money raised from being sponsored to live life from that decade is going to the Mercedes Curnow Foundation which is a charity set up to detect early cervical cancer, in honour of Mercedes who died aged just 23.

Tutor Leigh-Anne Purdon said: “Today was such fun and our students really went to town with their fashions and hairstyles. As well as being fun and living life back when most of our students were just babies, it got us all thinking about raising money for this foundation.”
