PICTURE GALLERY: Saffron Walden fashion show a huge success
A FASHION show has raised more than �2,000 for a cancer charity.
The show was held last Wednesday and involved 13 independent retailers having their wares strutted on a specially-made catwalk at the Town Hall.
Supported by Bidwells and 3D Events, the fashion show showcased collections from Johnny & Jenny Briggs, Gray Palmer, Modish, Brooks Designer Dress Agency, Petrus Design, Handpicked and Gorgeous, Rebels & Roses, Jacks Outdoor Wear, Wurrl, Beauty, Bump & Baby and Blue.
Lizzie’s Health and Beauty provided the make-up while the hair was done by Riccio Hair Design.
The retailers also donated prizes for a raffle on the night.
All proceeds will go towards Wallace Cancer Care, which supports cancer patients and their families and carers from two drop-in centres – an information centre in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, and a complementary therapy centre in Red Cross Lane, Cambridge.
The charity focuses on the practical, physical and psychological, and provides a range of support and information services, such as nutritional advice and workshops, relaxation and stress control, managing side effects, counselling, workshops and support groups, to people all over East Anglia.
