Fashion lovers enjoyed a wonderful afternoon when they helped raise over £2,000 for the Sara Lee Trust on Saturday 1 June at Pett Village Hall.
The event, which was organised by the volunteers from the Trust’s charity shop in Ore, welcomed a fantastic number of visitors to Pett Village Hall for an afternoon of fun, fashion and live music.
The fashion show saw models of all ages showcasing pre-loved designer and high street fashion, which were donated items from the Sara Lee Charity Shops and available for purchase on the day.
Nichola Coglan, Shop Supervisor for the Sara Lee Charity Shop in Ore said, “We are extremely grateful to everyone who came along and made the day a great success. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who helped at the event and to Acoustica for the fantastic music, Bentley & Hall for donating the carpet runway, Leon from the Lantern Tree Theatre Group for compering, Brian from Sound Tech Lighting and Mark Pearce for the wonderful photographs. I would also like to say a massive thank you to the amazing volunteers at the Ore shop – the event would not have been possible without their hard work and dedication.”
Following the event, the shop at Ore has been buzzing with activity as locals purchase items that were modelled at the Fashion event.
The funds raised will help to provide psychological and counselling support, complementary therapies and therapeutic group activities to people in Hastings and Rother affected by cancer, and other life threatening illnesses.
