An evening of fashion, food and fun is being held in Carlisle to raise money for the NSPCC.
The fashion show dinner at Tithe Barn on Thursday, October 11, has been organised by the NSPCC’s Carlisle Central Branch Fundraising Committee.
The event starts with a welcome drink and then a sit-down dinner, before the entertainment begins. Fashion from boutique women’s clothing store Hollberie, in Melmerby, Penrith, will be modelled on the catwalk. There will also be a raffle.
Meg Sunderland, chair of the committee, said: “It’s the fourth year that we have run this and it’s always been well attended, and a relaxed and fun evening.
“The food is all home-made by the committee and we cater for vegetarians.”
All the proceeds from the event, which will run from 7pm to about 10pm, will go towards helping the NSPCC protect more children from abuse and neglect.
The NSPCC runs a variety of services in Cumbria, including ones for young people who are at risk of, or are being, sexually abused.
The charity also visits primary schools, talking to children about their right to be safe. In 2017/18, NSPCC volunteers and staff delivered Speak out Stay safe assemblies in 109 schools in Cumbria, reaching 15,209 children.
Tickets for the fashion show and dinner cost £20 each and can be purchased from Meg on 01228 560157.
