£1,000 for de­men­tia fight

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

A VOL­UN­TARY ladies ser­vice club has raised £1,000 with a fash­ion show to help peo­ple af­fected by de­men­tia and their fam­i­lies.

Mem­bers of the In­ner Wheel Club of Mac­cles­field Cas­tle prac­tised stand­ing tall and em­u­lat­ing the moves of fash­ion mod­els from Lon­don, New York, Milan and Paris.

They then took to the cat­walk to model a se­lec­tion of beau­ti­ful clothes.

Af­ter the show, the gar­ments were dis­played for au­di­ence mem­bers to buy.

The event also in­cluded an ar­ray of stalls sell­ing tempt­ing home and beauty good­ies such as or­ganic can­dles and body lo­tions.

There was also the chance to pur­chase jew­ellery from well­known lo­cal jew­ellery makers.

Dis­trict chair­man Diana Ayres pre­sented a cheque for the £1,000 raised from the event to Pam Jag­ger from de­men­tia char­ity Golden Mem­o­ries.

Pam said: “I would like to thank the club for their kind­ness.

“I find it very hum­bling to ac­cept this cheque.

“The money will help to do a lot of things with the group, which is right at the heart of the com­mu­nity deal­ing with de­men­tia.”

The Mac­cles­field Cas­tle club is part of the largest vol­un­tary ladies ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tion in the world.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion is ac­tive in more than 103 coun­tries and sup­ports char­i­ties both at home and over­seas.
