MODEL NELL SPURS ON SCHOOL RACE

[ September 30th 2004 ]

Pupils at North Manchester High School for Boys took to the track alongside a supermodel for a sponsored walk and run, to raise money for a skin disease charity. More than 100 students took part in the school's charity event, to raise money for DebRA, the organisation which helps sufferers of the rare but very painful skin condition Epidermolysis Bullosa.

Scott Schofield, a Year 10 pupil at the Charlestown Road school, suffers with EB, and the efforts of his fellow pupils are expected to raise more than 2,000 for DebRA, to help fund research into what is currently an incurable illness. Those affected by EB have flesh that is so fragile that any knock or rub can cause very painful blistering, tearing and permanent damage. As well as helping their friend to complete 10 laps of the running track at Boggart Hole Clough, the students had another reason to take part, as supermodel, jungle survivor and former Tomb Raider Nell McAndrew came along to oversee proceedings.

Nell, who ran this year's London Marathon in aid of DebRA, turned up to make sure each student completed the 2-mile course and spent hours afterwards signing hundreds of autographs on the certificates that each of the youngsters received at the finishing line.
