Stylish fashion show raises charity funds for Christie Allsorts

A GLAMOROUS fashion show was the latest event from The Christie Allsorts as they look to raise £10,000 this year.

Around 110 guests filled Greenfield Conservative Club to see the stylish show, put on by Lucy Cobb clothes shop based on Uppermill high street.

Four models paraded the must-have items from their Spring/Summer 2016 range, including dresses, coats, trousers and tops, as well as accessories and jewellery.

Ten per cent of all sales on the night was donated to The Christie Allsorts, as well as 10 per cent from sales in Lucy Cobb’s shop for the rest of that week.

More was raised from a raffle, with prizes generously donated by local businesses including Dinnerstone, Eden Florists, Slenderworld Beauty, Lucy Cobb, St Annes RC Greenacres, Kenny Simpson, Tanya Davies and Java.

The Christie Allsorts have pledged to raise £10,000 by the end of the year to donate to projects at The Christie Charity.

Christine Harrop, chair of the Allsorts, explained: “This year we’ve decided to raise funds for The Christie’s proton bean therapy unit which is due to open in 2018.

“The treatment is only available in the USA and Switzerland at the moment but it is considered one of the treatments of the future for cancer, especially for children.

“We are very proud of what we have raised over the last four years for various projects and want to fulfil our pledge this year too.

“Thank you to Leigh from Lucy Cobb and the models, James and the Con Club, and all the generous businesses who donated raffle prizes. We are really very grateful.”
