Fashion show aids cancer support charity
8:44am Monday 25th June 2012 in Fundraising fun
A CHARITY fashion show has raised hundreds of pounds to help families stricken by cancer.
Models took to the catwalk in clothes from LK Bennett’s Petergate store, where the event was held, and York-based Kathryn Rolfe Lingerie and Swimwear.
Organiser Liz Ruane, who works with NFU Mutual in York, said the £570 raised would go to the north east-based Sara’s Hope Foundation, which runs a holiday retreat in Crete offering respite for young cancer patients and their families.
She and colleagues have already raised about £2,000 for the cause as part of a work charity challenge.
“It was a lovely evening and local businesses supported it so well, helping raise money for a great charity,” she said.
