Fundraisers from Lancashire law firm Farleys Solicitors hosted their 7th annual Fashion Fundraiser in aid of Rosemere Cancer Foundation on Thursday 10th October.
The event brought together more than 40 local women to the Sunday Best shop in Rawtenstall to view a fashion show of their Autumn/Winter collection hosted by celebrity stylist Jill Pollitt, a glass or two of fizz and an out of hours shop for their latest fashion item.
Through ticket sales and a raffle with a top prize of a Vivienne Westwood handbag, a total of £1,550 was raised. This total has been matched by the Farleys Foundation making a grand total of £3,100
The money raised will go towards helping Rosemere in the fantastic work they do supporting world class cancer treatment throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria.
Cathy Skidmore, Trust and Corporate Fundraiser at Rosemere commented;
“We are very grateful to Farleys Solicitors for organising and hosting its annual fashion show on our behalf. It’s an eagerly anticipated and thoroughly enjoyable event that has now become a highlight on our fundraising calendar.”
Antonia Love, Partner at Farleys commented;
“Our fashion fundraiser is a lovely, enjoyable little event which our clients and friends support year on year. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along and helped us to raise so much for such an important cause.
“Also, a special thank you to Jill Pollitt and our models on the evening and, of course, to the ladies at Sunday Best for allowing us to take over the shop for the evening!”
