The Village Charity Fashion Evening

Posted on November 25 2009 at 9:06:28 0 comments

After the huge success of last year’s Charity Fashion Evening, organised by The Village and Fresh@Burcot Garden Centre, we couldn’t wait to do it all again – and this year the event attracted even more people and raised a higher sum for the Midland Air Ambulance.

Everyone enjoyed a fun-filled evening of fashion shows, shopping opportunities, entertainment and delicious refreshments, and there was even a special guest appearance from Santa and one of his elves!

The event was compered by everyone’s favourite local poet, Spoz, and talented guitarist Stuart Toogood provided interval music while the excellent sound and lighting was created by Inside Out Entertainment.

The professional catwalk shows, which were filmed by Arch Moving Memories, displayed the season’s must-haves from Barnt Green boutiques Joolz and Continental Collection, and – to the audience’s delight – some very cute pooches modelling dog fashions from Paws Here.

Ticket holders took advantage of a 10% discount on purchases from Fresh, including fabulous festive decorations and gifts, and also browsed stalls selling various gifts and services: accessories from Joolz, lingerie from Temptations, handmade jewellery by Coconut Pink, handcrafted mirrors by Jackie Nash, interior design by Vera Giles and vintage tea parties by Constance Wallace.

As well as Indian canapes by The Spice Trade and a BBQ courtesy of Meadow Farm Butchers, guests enjoyed fine wine from Thresher and took part in a mini wine tasting.

The raffle offered a host of great prizes – including hair and beauty vouchers, a meal for two and a clairvoyant reading – and helped to raise further funds for a very worthy cause. With donations from stallholders, the final total is expected to top £2,600.

Thank you to everyone who was involved – we couldn’t have done it without your support.
