LOCAL ladies are holding a fashion show next month to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
The 12 members of the West Wickham & Hayes Cancer Research Committee have raised over £800,000 since their group was formed in 1963.
Funds are raised in a variety of ways including quizzes, autumn festivals, the sale of plants, coffee mornings, afternoon teas, craft fairs and coach trips, usually to stately homes or gardens.
The committee’s latest outing was to the Sarah Raven Gardens in Essex, where a private tour of the gardens followed by lunch was enjoyed by all.
The next big fundraising event is a fashion show, featuring high street clothes and bargains galore, by Travelling Trends of Redhill. It takes place from 7pm on Wednesday, June 21 at The Warren Metropolitan Police Sports Club on Croydon Road, Hayes. A previous fashion show raised £1,357.
Organiser Mary Jones says: “We try in lots of different ways to raise money for this very worthy cause. Every member of our committee has been touched by cancer in some way or the other so every pound we can raise puts a smile on our faces!”
