Stourport fashion show raises £120
7:20am Saturday 28th September 2013 in Local
MODELS strutted their stuff to raise funds for five charities at a fashion show in Stourport.
Fashion retailer M and Co and youth project Engage4Life hosted the afternoon show and raised £120 through ticket sales as well as £28 in a raffle.
Youngsters aged 15 to 17 organised the event as part of their National Citizen Service (NCS), a Summer project giving them the opportunity to try a range of outdoor activities, meet new people and make a difference within their local communities.
The money raised by the show, held at the Lombard Street store, was split between the Meningitis Trust, Macmillan Cancer Support, the Edwards Trust which supports bereaved or seriously ill children, young cardiac arrest charity Cry and the Lullaby Trust which works to prevent unexpected deaths in infancy.
The raffle money was donated to Cancer Research UK.
Assistant store manager Hayley Humphries said: “We were thrilled to work with the youngsters from Engage4Life and support their work.
“Everyone was really pleased with the success of the event and the money raised by the local community.”
The show gave audience members the chance to view the store’s summer collections and buy items at a discounted price.
The NCS programme also included an adventure week in Wales, an enterprise week at a local hotel and social action projects in the community.
Engage4Life, the not-for-profit company running the NCS, aimed to remove the bad reputation associated with community service such as activities like litter picking.
