Fash­ion show is a run­away hit for trust

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

TEN­ANTS at a char­ity strut­ted their stuff in a spe­cial fash­ion show to raise a mas­sive £3,000.

The fash­ion event was or­gan­ised in aid of the Rossendale Trust, in Sut­ton, which pro­vides ac­com­mo­da­tion for adults with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties, as well as a host of ac­tiv­i­ties for the peo­ple it helps.

Ser­vice users mod­elled clothes pro­vided by SOS Bou­tique in Bramhall at the event in Tyther­ing­ton.

Sue Heaven, head of fundrais­ing at the trust, said: “It was a won­der­ful evening, and a great chance to raise funds with – and for – the peo­ple we sup­port.”

An im­pres­sive 200 guests at­tended the event, rais­ing more than £3,000 for the char­ity – more than ever be­fore.

The part­ner­ship with SOS Bou­tique has so far pro­duced five fash­ion events, with the shows go­ing from strength to strength.

The money from this year’s event will go to­wards the trust’s ac­tiv­ity fund, a pot of money that helps ten­ants to ac­cess ac­tiv­i­ties they may not be able to do in­de­pen­dently.

This could in­clude a hol­i­day which they have al­ways wanted to go on but re­quires more sup­port or adap­ta­tions.
