Model students get on their bike
THREE Carnegie college students who signed up to model for a West Fife charity will find themselves in the world"s fashion capital this autumn.
Prentice Events, who organise the Two Capitals Cycle Ride to Edinburgh and the Auld Alliance Cycle Race to Paris were looking for faces to front the events.
Students Joanna Crozier, Matt Kelly and Sarah Keeble will be out and about in Edinburgh and Dunfermline in June and will head to Paris in September.
Allan Prentice, of Prentice Events, explained, 'The models will be dressed in kilts and will go ahead of the cyclists and hand out information about Scotland.'
Prentice Events had initially approached students at Carnegie College and Stevenson College in Edinburgh to create and model for a charity calendar. Carnegie students jumped on board and recently went with the Stevenson team to Keavil House to make the calendar, which will be sold at the end of the year to raise cash for Akwendeny hospital and school in Malawi.
Mr Prentice then chose two of the models to go to Paris in September and lucky West Fifers Joanna and Sarah were picked.
Mr Prentice added, 'We are promoting the Auld Alliance and will be handing out Scottish produce and promoting cycle routes in Scotland.'
Other students have been involved in the campaign, creating posters and leaflets for the events, which will be distributed throughout the central belt. Each of the Carnegie models received a bike and a cycling outfit for their troubles and the two girls will get their trips to Paris.
