STAND aside supermodels - the residents at Brunswick Gardens are in the spotlight now!

Older people living at the retirement village in Woodhouse, Sheffield, raised money for charity by putting on a fashion show with a twist.

Residents themselves were the ones stepping onto the catwalk to support the Extra Care Charitable Trust.

Eight residents took part in the clothes show, each one showcasing evening, day and workwear.

A hairdresser from Planet Hair on Carlton Road volunteered his time to give the models makeovers.

And the Brunswick Gardens choir volunteered to sing and there were plenty of stalls selling gifts.

The clothes were chosen from an Extra Care charity shop in Worksop.

Pauline Scott, who runs the shop, organised the show and said: “A lot of people donate to our shops but don’t really know what the charity does.”

Extra Care funds and develops retirement villages across the region, housing 3,700 elderly people.
