October 2010

We Held our Fashion Show on Friday 29th October 2010 at Rookley and, as well as having a good time, we managed to put some cash in the MS Kitty.

The Branch held a "Charity turns Chic" Fashion Show, fundraising event on Friday 29th October at Lakeside, Rookley Country Park.

Nineteen models, many of whom are volunteer staff at the MS Centre, Shanklin, strutted their stuff on the catwalk. They each displayed four outfits during a two part show before the grand finale when all paraded evening wear. Most of the items shown had been donated to the charity for the event. The items were then subsequently offered for sale.

A comedy clothing act by Richard John during the interval raised £150 for his performance. The event raise approximately £1,000.

Thanks are expressed to many local businesses for over thirty quality prizes in a grand raffle. Gift and beauty side stalls offered added entertainment and contribution to the charity's fundraising effort.
Thanks go out to to the models and volunteers who made this event so successful.
A good evening was had by all.
