Players help raise funds for official charity.

Members of the playing staff swapped the pitch for the catwalk last night to raise funds for the Foundation of Light.

The Montgomery Suite was packed out for the sixth annual Fashion Strikes event, with guests including head coach Gus Poyet.

Players including Phil Bardsley, Steven Fletcher, Adam Johnson and Emanuele Giaccherini modelled the latest styles, while the popular kids' fashion show featured some of the children helped by the Foundation of Light's valuable community programmes.

All in all the event raised thousands of pounds for the club's official charity, who help more than 42,000 people across the region and beyond every year.
