Fashion is coming to Carlisle this February with a glamorous event to raise money for the NSPCC.
Models will take to the Carlisle catwalk on the 22nd February for a fashion show showcasing leading high street brands; including the likes of Monsoon, Wallis, and Hobbs, to fundraise for the NSPCC’s work in preventing cruelty to children.
Following the fashion show, there will be a chance to buy heavily discounted clothes from the same leading brands, with the addition of stores like Oasis, River Island, and Next. It’s the perfect opportunity to freshen up your wardrobe, while coming together with like-minded fashionistas to help the NSPCC support even more children in and around Carlisle.
Meg Sunderland, Chair of the Carlisle Central NSPCC Volunteer Fundraising Committee, said “I would urge everyone to snap up a ticket for what promises to be an enjoyable day for all whilst raising funds for children who really need our help and support.”
Sandra Jones, Community Fundraising Manager for the NSPCC, said “The Fundraising Committees never fail to delight in the number and variety of the events they kindly and tirelessly organise for the NSPCC. We can’t thank them enough and I would urge everyone to buy a ticket before they sell out, for what promises to be a fantastic day of fashion.
“Thanks to their efforts, we can be there for even more children when they need us most. We rely on public support to help us continue our work and it is only thanks to the fantastic generosity of people in Cumbria that we have been able to reach so many children.”
1 in every 5 children has suffered from abuse and neglect, but by raising money through something as simple as shopping, you can help the NSPCC reach even more children to educate them on the importance of staying safe and speaking to a trusted adult if they feel threatened or scared.
Through our Speak Out. Stay Safe. service we’ve already taught 10,871 children at 103 schools in Cumbria how to stay safe from abuse. We want a whole generation of children to know what abuse is, that it’s never a child’s fault and who to turn to if they ever need to talk.
It costs £3 for us to reach one primary school child with our Speak Out. Stay Safe. assembly, meaning the price of your ticket alone means that a child can be empowered to speak out about abuse and neglect. Every penny raised makes a difference to the number of children we can help.
Doors open at 2pm on Saturday 22nd February at Victory Hall, Dalston, CA5 7QB. Tickets are £5 and must be purchased in advance. For more information, contact Fiona Hodgson on 07814 641 382 or Celia Taylor on 01697 748 453.
