An­nual char­ity fash­ion show set for take off

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

A MUM-OF-FOUR is hold­ing an in­spi­ra­tional fash­ion show to raise money for a brand new cen­tre for peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer.

Margo Cor­nish, northwest am­bas­sador for the Teenage Can­cer Trust, will host her Run­way on the Run­way show, first held in 2013, at Manch­ester Air­port’s Run­way Vis­i­tor Cen­tre in June.

And the 50 mod­els who will strut their stuff on the five cat­walks will be men and women un­der­go­ing treat­ment for the dis­ease them­selves, or who have done in the past.

The money raised will go to­wards the new £6m Mag­gie’s Cen­tre at The Christie, which will open in April.

The cen­tre will pro­vide free prac­ti­cal, emo­tional and so­cial sup­port and is one of a num­ber of sim­i­lar cen­tres at NHS can­cer hospi­tals in the UK and abroad.

Margo, who lives on Within­lee Road, Prest­bury, with hus­band Char­lie Cor­nish, CEO of the Manch­ester Air­port Group, and daugh­ter, Fiona, 17, said: “There is lit­tle aware­ness about young peo­ple with can­cer. I have three daugh­ters my­self and your teenage years are not a good time to be sick. Lots of young peo­ple are do­ing self­ies and go­ing through can­cer treat­ment and feel­ing re­ally rub­bish about them­selves.”

Mod­els at the show will all have makeovers and get to wear a range of clothes from high street fash­ion de­sign­ers.

Margo said: “I just want the mod­els to feel amaz­ing.”

To model in the show, you must be ei­ther hav­ing treat­ment for can­cer or have done so.

To nom­i­nate your­self or some­one else as a model, or to pur­chase tick­ets, avail­able at the end of this month, go to mag­gieson­therun­way. com.

The show will take place on Satur­day, June 11.
