Fashion Show Success - in aid of Charity

Fashion Show Success - in aid of CharityA charity fashion show and shopping evening held at Thomas Estley Community College in Broughton Astley raised over £600.00 for Friends of Chernobyl's Children (West Leics).

The charity provides respite holidays for disadvantaged children whose lives are adversely affected as a result of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and the money raised will go towards bringing a group of 15 children to stay with volunteer host families in West Leicestershire this summer.

The evening was sponsored by award winning company Ian Pickering Photography of Sharnford who has supported the charity over several years.

FOCC spokesman John Buckby said “We are extremely grateful to Ian Pickering Photography for sponsoring the show again this year and to everyone that has helped to make the evening a success. The money raised will provide a holiday of a lifetime for one of the children we support and will make a real difference”.
