Willen charity fashion show raises £6000
A charity fashion show hosted by Olney’s top retailers raised more than £6000 for local palliative care charity Willen Hospice. The event, held at the Carlton House Club in Olney, was a vibrant celebration of fashion, community, and philanthropy.
Attendees enjoyed an evening filled with style and glamour, featuring the latest collections from Olney’s leading fashion boutiques. Willen Hospice’s own shop also took centre stage, showcasing a stunning selection of pre- loved occasion-wear from its upstairs boutique in the town.
The event was organised by Jane Sumner from Noa Noa and Marihelen Esam, a trustee at Willen Hospice. The fashion show was complemented by a lively raffle and auction, where guests had the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, generously donated by local businesses and individuals. Delicious canapes were served courtesy of The Pancake House.
Kate Broadhurst, CEO of Willen Hospice, attended the event and expressed her gratitude to everyone who contributed to its success.
“We are incredibly grateful to our community in Olney for their unwavering support,” she said. “The funds raised will go a long way in helping us continue our vital work in providing compassionate, palliative care to those who need it most.”
The evening concluded with a heartfelt thank you to all participants, including the models, retailers, sponsors, and volunteers who made the event possible. Their combined efforts ensured that the fashion show was not only a memorable experience but also a meaningful contribution to a worthy cause.
