Youngsters take to the catwalk in fundraiser

TEENAGERS taking part in a summer educational programme are planning a fashion show featuring only clothes from charity shops.

The youngsters, aged 16 to 17, aim to show that clothes from charity outlets are just as good as those that can be bought from major the high street chains.

The event will be held at the workingmen’s club in Forest Hall from 6pm until 8pm on Monday, August 13.

Tickets are £1.50 for adults, £1 for seniors and 50p for children – which includes a cupcake – and all proceeds will go to St Oswald’s Hospice.

Other charities, including the RSPCA, PDSA and Scope will also be involved by bringing their own clothes for visitors to purchase.

There will also be live music, a raffle and the bar will be open.
