An Alnwick gym has thrown its support behind a fashion show, which will feature products sold by two local businesses.

Lisa Aynsley, of Hotspur 1364, on Narrowgate, is holding the party to celebrate the addition of Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger to her autumn/winter collection.

The event will also be showcasing sports and leisurewear brand, AIM athleisure, which is the brainchild of Alnwick’s Amy Fettis.

A few weeks ago, Lisa contacted the Gazette to make an appeal for models to take to the cat walk.

And following the request, Alnwick gym, Real Fitness, which has just expanded into a new premises in the town, has agreed to put forward some of its trainers and members to be models.

The launch party takes place tomorrow at Mailhouse, in Fenkle Street, from 7pm. Tickets are £3 in advance or £5 on the night.

Real Fitness, which is now based at South Road Industrial Estate, has offered a free high intensity interval training session for everyone who buys a ticket to the event.

The Mailhouse has donated the venue for free and will provide a free glass of fizz for all ticket holders.

Booth Avenue, an event promotion business run by local lads Toby Davison and Jake Wilkin, have volunteered to provide their DJ skills for the evening and will host an after party at the Mailhouse, with free entry for those who have bought tickets to the fashion show.

The event is in aid of Sarcoma UK, which provides support and information for all types of sarcoma cancer; bone cancer, soft tissue cancer and gastrointestinal stromal tumours.

In excess of 15 local businesses have made donations for a charity raffle.

Sarcoma UK has been selected because a local lad and customer of Hotspur 1364 has benefited directly from the charity.
