TEACHER Pauline Scott became queen of the catwalk when she took part in Breast Cancer Care’s London Fashion Show earlier this month.

Fifty-seven-year-old Pauline, from Ferndown, was one of 24 models who took part in the event to help raise funds for the charity.

“The thrill we got as we walked out on the catwalk to the applause was amazing – not because we were worthy in any other way than the experience they knew we had been through.

“Some in the audience had experienced it, some had supported us through it and others were there wondering if they ‘will get away with it’.

“I think we had the respect of every person present for being bold enough to go up there and say, ‘it’s not all bad and you can still look glamorous and feel great about yourself after a diagnosis of breast cancer’.”

All of the models had their hair done by Vidal Sassoon Salons and make-up by Estee Lauder.

The event aims to raise at least £500,0000 to support the 46,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK every year.
