Up­grade your wardrobe while help­ing oth­ers

Alpine Observer - - Front Page - By JUSTIN JENVEY

FASH­ION, food and fundrais­ing. The three will all be present at the Bright Red Cross Blumes Fash­ion Show and Morn­ing Tea next week.

The bi- an­nual event is one of the best fundrais­ers for Red Cross and also al­lows older women within the com­mu­nity, who might find it dif­fi­cult to get out of town to shop, the chance to up­grade their wardrobe.

Blumes is Aus­tralia’s lead­ing mo­bile women’s cloth­ing re­tailer and has part­nered with Red Cross in Bright to stage the fash­ion show since it started.

“We have been do­ing it for more than 20 years,” Bright Red Cross pres­i­dent Nola West said.

“It’s our way of help­ing the ladies buy some new clothes and to raise money for Red Cross.

“Many of the women who come along are reg­u­lar at­ten­dees and en­joy the so­cial as­pect of the show as much as the fash­ions.

“We put on a de­li­cious morn­ing tea while there’s also raf­fle prizes and lucky door prizes to be won and vouch­ers to be used on the day.”

Money raised from the day goes to sup­port­ing nu­mer­ous Red Cross pro­jects here and abroad.

A huge range of gar­ments will be on dis­play and ladies will have the op­por­tu­nity to try clothes on prior to pur­chas­ing them.

The Blumes Fash­ion Show and Morn­ing Tea will be held at the Bright Bowls Club on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 19, from 10am.

En­try is $ 5.
