Hall fashion show and dinner to help charity

Have your say

A sophisticated fund-raising fashion show and shopping evening is to be staged at Thornbridge Hall next month in aid of local charity Helen’s Trust.

The latest designer labels from Sister of Ecclesall Road will be on the catwalk at the exclusive dinner event.

Helen’s Trust, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary, supports people with incurable illnesses who want to stay in their own home in the North Derbyshire and north-east Sheffield areas.

It is named after Helen Louise Lyon, who had an incurable illness but wished to stay at home even when very ill.

The charity was conceived as a tribute to Helen and to ensure that that choice is available to more people.

The evening at Thornbridge, which is at Ashford-in-the-Water, will also feature a selection of stalls including MOO MOO, Laura Davies Gallery, Jo Wood and JIJOU.

Organiser Julia Patterson said: “Our previous shows have been a great success and with many brands and shops already lined up for this year’s event we are hoping it will be our best yet.”

Tickets for the March 24 event are £40 and include dinner and a glass of fizz. To book contact Mandy Brown, tel 07901710767, email: kool4pets@googlemail.com
