A GLAMOROUS prom for Wisbech Grammar School students staged at the end of the GCSE examinations raised more than �1,000.

The four students who organized the event privately, Madeleine Rumbelow, Emma Barker, Eleanor Overvoorde and Kimberley Alexander, have now handed a cheque for �1,160 to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

A crowd of 200, in black ties and party dresses, arrived by helicopter, by bus, in limousines and a stretched Hummer for the gathering at Tydd St Giles Community Centre and �280 was raised on the night.

This was supplemented by a donation of �300 from Wisbech Round Table and the total was then doubled in the pound for pound scheme operated by the HSBC bank.
