Exclusive charity fashion event in Winchester for Save the Children

 

Exclusive charity fashion event in Winchester all set to raise thousands of pounds for Save the Children

Final preparations are being made by organisers for an afternoon fashion show at Lainston House, near Winchester, on the 30th June 2017 to raise money for Save the Children.

Organisers Elizabeth and David StJohn from Save the Children met up with local celebrity and internationally renowned hairdresser Guy Kremer, Darren Cooper and Charlie Culverhouse from Prestige Cars by Peter Cooper, Dominika Miller from Hobbs to discuss the final details of a special fund-raiser charity event.

The exclusive event includes afternoon tea followed by a fashion show by Hobbs, which will be compered by Charlie Culverhouse from Prestige Cars by Peter Cooper, including a speech from ITN newsreader Alistair Stewart.

The exciting list of donated gifts from local businesses will be auctioned by Andrew Smith.

“We are hoping local people will come and support this event on the 30th June to raise money for such a worthwhile charity,” says Elizabeth StJohn from Save the Children.

Elizabeth added: “We have a limited number of tickets for this exclusive event so my advice is to buy now to avoid disappointment. I’d like to thank everyone who has helped to make this event happen – whether it be participants, sponsors or guests.

“All proceeds will be spent very wisely. For every £1 received on behalf of Save the Children, 91p is spent on the projects, 8p is spent on fund-raising and 1p is spent on governance.  In 2016, over 22 million children were helped in the U.K, the Middle Ease, South America, Asia, and Africa.”

Darren Cooper, Managing Director of the Peter Cooper Motor Group, added: “We are delighted to support the event and raise money for Save the Children. It’s a fantastic cause and we hope thousands will be raised o the day.”

Tickets, at £40 each, for this special occasion are still available.  Contact david.stjohn@btinternet.com  or phone 01794 388119 to have an enjoyable treat whilst helping Save the Children to continue its vital work around the world.
