Putting fashion into fund-raising

Patients from HospiceCare North Northumberland and their families will be strutting their stuff at a spring fashion show to raise money for the charity.

Those stepping out will be wearing clothes from Alnwick-based retailers such as CC Fashion, Kiddies Kabin and Scotts of Alnwick, as well as Dorothy Perkins.

The event will also feature handmade corsets by Sue Scott and there will be live music.

Show-goers will have the chance to browse and shop with The Chocolate Spa, The Emporium, A1 Glass Studio, Studley Soaps and Christina Murton Jewellery.

Julie Frost, from HospiceCare, said: “This event is as a result of a group of patients who asked if they could support an event to give something back to HospiceCare. All the models on the night will be patients and their families.”

The event takes place at The Alnwick Garden’s Pavilion on Friday, March 15, from 7pm to 9.30pm.

Tickets are £10 and refreshments will be provided. Tickets are available from CC Fashion, Scotts of Alnwick or by calling HospiceCare on 01665 606515.
