Twelve models strutted along the catwalk at the Spread Eagle Hotel, Sawley, in a fashion show organised by boutique owner Beccy Ford to raise cash for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Becky chose to support Rosemere in tribute to her late mum-in-law, Evelyn Ford, who had received its help.

The models, who all donated their time for free, wore a seasonal mix of outdoor, casual and party outfits, 
while Beccy’s own Elan boutique, of Castle Gate, Clitheroe, ran an accessories gift stall.

Charity campaigner and retired estate agent Bill Honeywell and his wife, Valerie, gave a talk on behalf of Rosemere. Through ticket sales and a raffle, the event raised £543 for the charity.

Becky said: “It was a fantastic night. I’d like to thank everyone who came along, all the models, Bill and Valerie, the Spread Eagle, which not only donated us the function room but also gave a meal for two as a raffle prize, plus other businesses which gave us prizes and helped to make the raffle such a success.

“I’d also like to thank Nick Gill, who gave his time and expertise to capture the evening on camera for us.”

Rosemere Cancer Foundation (www.rosemere.org.uk) provides equipment, research and training which the NHS cannot fund, in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
