Vol­un­teers and staff take to the cat­walk for fab­u­lous fundraiser

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

TEN­ANTS and staff from the Rossendale Trust looked fab­u­lous when they strut­ted their stuff on the cat­walk.

They were mod­el­ling out­fits from SOS Bou­tique, in Bramhall, and Best Man Ltd suit hire, for a spe­cial event in aid of the char­ity.

And as well as feel­ing like a mil­lion dol­lars, they also man­aged to raise al­most £3,000.

Sue Heaven, head of fundrais­ing at the Trust, said it was a fan­tas­tic night for every­one in­volved.

She said: “I was so proud of every­one who stepped out on the cat­walk that night.

“Both ten­ants and staff looked fan­tas­tic, dressed in the lat­est styles and put on an ex­cel­lent show”.

In to­tal £2,800 was raised, which is fan­tas­tic news for the char­ity which pro­vides care and sup­port for adults with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties.

The event was held at the Tyther­ing­ton Club, with the money from ticket sales go­ing to the Hollin Lane char­ity.

Ev­ery role on the night, from model to wait­ress, pre­sen­ter to ticket col­lec­tor was per­formed by ten­ants and staff from the char­ity.

The event has be­come more than just a great fundraiser for the Trust – it’s a chance for the ten­ants to get on the cat­walk and strut their stuff. If you would like to know more about the Trust please give us a call on 01260 252500 or visit www.rossendaletrust.org
