£1,000 for dementia fight
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.
