Fash­ion show raises hun­dreds for Sa­mar­i­tans

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

A FASH­ION show or­gan­ised by a shop in Yax­ley has raised more than £600 for char­ity.

Sue All­bright, owner of Cir­cles of Yax­ley, in Chapel Street, put on the fash­ion pa­rade by set­ting up a cat­walk in Peter­bor­ough Town Hall, in Bridge Street, for her 10 mod­els to show-off the clothes on sale in her shop.

She has reg­u­lar fash­ion shows to raise money for good causes. Sue de­cided to do­nate the pro­ceeds raised to the Sa­mar­i­tans af­ter the char­ity’s fund-rais­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber and Cir­cles of Yax­ley cus­tomer Anita Patch­ett ap­proached her.

She said: “She asked if we would do the fash­ion show for them and I thought it sounded like a re­ally good idea.

“It went re­ally well. We had over 100 peo­ple in the crowd and I think the only man there was Anita’s hus­band Ian, who was help­ing the mod­els off the stage.

“The mod­els all wore nine out­fits each, which all came from the shop. There was ev­ery­thing from ca­sual to mother of the bride and evening wear.”

Anita added: “In to­tal £675 was raised, which is re­ally help­ful. We are al­ways try­ing to raise funds through col­lec­tions and events.

“There was a very good at­mos­phere in the fash­ion show.” she’s in fash­ion: Is­abella Cas­tle (16) wear­ing a prom dress at the Cir­cles of Yax­ley fash­ion show in the Town Hall. (METP-09-05-12AS020)
