Staff from the Winckley Square offices of law firm Farleys Solicitors were the perfect models of how to fundraise for charity when they helped to host an autumn/winter fashion show for clients and business associates at a nearby boutique that raised £1,300 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
Guests were greeted with a glass of fizz, canapes and goody bags before professional catwalk models took to the runway to showcase the latest seasonal trends.
Farleys Solicitors, which also has offices in Blackburn, Burnley, Accrington, and Manchester, has supported Rosemere Cancer Foundation for more than a decade.
Its annual fashion show, held at Sunday Best in Rawtenstall, comes hot on the heels of a donation of almost £12,000 made earlier in the year. It followed a 12-month campaign across the company to support Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s 20 Years Anniversary Appeal, which raised £1.5 million to celebrate the 20th birthday of Rosemere Cancer Centre, Lancashire and South Cumbria’s specialist regional cancer treatment centre at the Royal Preston Hospital.
Head of Family Law, Antonia Love, said: “Our fashion show is now in its eighth year and is always eagerly anticipated and well supported. Guests travel from each of the towns and cities where we have offices and in Rosemere Cancer Foundation, we have a local charity that works across that same area, making it an ideal cause to support.”
Rosemere Cancer Foundation spends the donations it receives on vital equipment, research, training and other cancer services that are beyond the NHS’ limited resources.
It works to ensure cancer patients from Lancashire and South Cumbria have access to world class care throughout their cancer journey whether they are treated at Rosemere Cancer Centre or one of the eight local hospital cancer units where the charity also supports projects, including the unit at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital.
