Fashion Show Raises £950
Our first ever fashion show took place recently on Saturday April 7th at Stock Village Hall. You can see some photos alongside! With 100 ladies in attendance, the event raised a fabulous total of £950 for the Sanctuary.
Our Founder Sue Burton gave an introductory talk at the start and thanked everyone for their support and talked them through the latest arrivals at the Sanctuary.
The fashion show itself was 90 minutes long and everyone was then given the opportunity to purchase clothing on the night – much of the merchandise was being offered at up to 50% off! The show and clothing were provided by Colours Fashion Company who had come all the way from Manchester! It was all branded clothing including M&S, Wallis, New Look, Top Shop, River Island and many others. The evening also included refreshments and a raffle, which alone raised £200.
Almost everyone treated themselves to clothes and some ladies left with armfuls!
Once again the event was run mainly by volunteers and without their support this, and events like this, could not happen. We are so grateful to them.
