Hospice fash­ion date

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

WOMEN look­ing to up­date their wardrobe with­out spend­ing High Street prices are be­ing urged to look to a Peter­bor­ough char­ity.

Sue Ry­der Thorpe Hall Hospice is stag­ing its an­nual Glam­our Ga­lore event, which will in­clude a spe­cial swish­ing area where bar­gain hunters can trade in their no longer worn clothes and ac­ces­sories.

For a fee of £2 up to five items of good qual­ity clothes, shoes, bags or ac­ces­sories can be swapped, and for ev­ery item dropped off, one re­place­ment item may be taken. The swish­ing will start at noon but items should be dropped off be­tween 10am and 11.30am.

The event will take place at the city’s Mar­riott ho­tel on May 27.

A spokes­woman said: “It is a gir­lie shop­ping ex­trav­a­ganza which in­cludes fash­ion, jew­ellery, hair dis­plays, pam­per­ing and ad­vice.

“John Lewis will show the lat­est fash­ions and their own stylist will give per­sonal con­sul­ta­tions in re­turn for do­na­tions to the char­ity.”

Vis­i­tors will be tempted from around 40 bou­tique stalls with many ex­clu­sive goods for the sum­mer sea­son. There will also be a Sweets and Treats sta­tion and a chance to rest dur­ing demon­stra­tions of flower ar­rang­ing, ta­ble set­ting and Zumba.

The event lasts from 10am to 4.30pm and tick­ets are priced at £5 which in­cludes an ar­rival drink and goody bag for all who pre-reg­is­ter.

To reg­is­ter your in­ter­est, email with the names of all guests to Thorpe.fundrais­ing@suery­der.org. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 01733 330060.
