The Step by Step Charity Fashion Show held at Davenport Green in Hale Barns on 13th October raised over £4000 for The Genesis Appeal and The Children's Adventure Farm Trust.
The show was organised by Spire Manchester Hospital. The Breast cancer survivors from the hospital and the breast care team volunteered to model for the show. The fabulous ladies were joined by their children wearing fashion from Hobbs, local boutique Vanilla and Altrincham’s trendy kids clothing store Edgy Kid.
Deb Silver hosted the evening and belted out a few songs along with a fantastic “Glee” number performed by Lynda Cardwell’s Theatre School dancers, adding a very entertaining element to the evening.
The sale of raffle tickets for prizes donated by local businesses such as the Hale Bar and Grill along with an auction piece provided by Steven Stone made up a huge amount of the money raised.
Event co-ordinator Laura Croft from Spire said “The event, the first of its kind for us has been a huge success with so many local businesses volunteering products and services for these two very worthy local charities.”
Pannone Solicitors sponsored the canapés, BareFoot wines provided wine for all the tables and the Clarins counter at Rackham’s in Altrincham donated 150 goody bags.
Julie Gray, Community Fundraiser comments: “This was such a fantastic event and we really can’t thank Spire enough for all of their hard work. The money raised at this event will change the lives of terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children from all over the North West – an amazing achievement which they should be so proud of. It means so much to us when local companies and people come together to support our work, without the support of our community we would simply cease to exist.”
