Cancer kids take to catwalk.

YOUNG cancer survivors were among those who took to the catwalk at the weekend to raise cash for charity.

About 30 youngsters, aged from three to 21, took part in the fashion show, which attracted an audience of more than 160.

It was in aid of Edinburgh's Royal Hospital for Sick Children, where the models had been treated for cancer and other conditions.

Organiser Maura Rudden, 40, has seen two of her children treated at the hospital.

She said the event, held in a Leith hotel on Saturday, had been a great success. About pounds 800 was raised on the night and it's hoped the total will top pounds 1000 when all donations are in.

Maura added: "It was a great night and we had a great turnout. The kids did so well.

"We just thought it would be nice to give something back and every little helps."
