Following a really busy start to the year, we have had some very successful events, Zumbathon, 50 Shades of Grey Ladies’ Event at Cineworld and the fabulous Fashion Show at Cirencester’s recently refurbished Kings Head hotel, which was organised by Claire Charlton and hosted by The Countess of Bathurst.
Guests enjoyed browsing at various bespoke clothes, hats and shoe stalls, whilst sipping champagne before the main event. The fashion show, compered by Claire Carter of BBC Radio Gloucestershire,
had many collections, from casual Spring looks, to designer country looks and glamourous evening wear. Special thanks go to Lisa von Hallwyl Millinery, Monday Boutique, Boutique 3, Sue Parkinson, Melissa Antonious, Tia-Tia Ltd, Allure, CC Shoes. Bringing this fabulous evening together was make up and hair styling which was provided generously by Maddy from Wedding Paint, student make-up artist Elisha Bartley and The Stuart Holmes Hair & Beauty Salon.
A fabulous £1,600 was raised and the event was enjoyed by all.
