Fashion Show Returns to Raise Funds for Centre
The MS Support Centre is looking forward to its second Fashion Show this month which acts as an important fundraising event for the Saltney based Centre.
Over £1000 was raised at the Centre’s first ever Fashion Show last year and it is hoped that the event will exceed that figure this year.
The event is taking place at the White Horse within Chester Racecourse on Thursday 27th March, where guests will enjoy a two course meal before having the opportunity to see the new fashions available for the Summer season at Laundry Boutique.
“We had a fabulous night last year,” said Katie Roebuck, Fundraiser for the MS Support Centre. “All the ladies had a great night and it was a really fun way to raise money. The MS Support Centre has expanded its services a lot over the last couple of years but in order to be able to support everyone that needs us, we have to raise as much money as possible.”
The evening starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £25. They are available from the MS Support Centre in Saltney or the Laundry Boutique shop in Bridge Street.
The MS Support Centre provides practical support and therapies to manage the symptoms a wide range of neurological conditions including MS, Parkinsons and ME and supports over 350 people across North Wales, Cheshire, Wirral and Shropshire.
The MS Support Centre’s new Community Fundraiser has hit the ground running by organising her first event to raise money for the Saltney-based Centre.
Angela is a graduate of the University of Chester and has been appointed by the Centre thanks to a Time to Shine internship.
“Raising money for charity is something that I have always been passionate about and I really enjoyed organising a Dodgeball Tournament as part of my Events Management degree” explained Angela. “I’m really enjoying working at the MS Support Centre, every day is different and it is great to know that I’m helping such a worthwhile cause.”
The Dodgeball Tournament will take place on Sunday 23rd February at Airbus Sports Hall, with the first match taking place at 11.30am. Ten teams of six will be taking part in the competitive elimination game which involves two teams trying to throw large balls at each other while avoiding being hit themselves.
People are welcome to attend on the day to view the activities and enjoy the competitive atmosphere.
Angela is also well underway in organising a Zip-Wire event for the charity and in helping with its annual Fashion Show which takes place on Thursday 27th March at the White Horse, Chester Racecourse. She is also keen to hear people’s ideas for raising money for the Centre, if you are interested in organising an activity or taking part in something call her on 01244 678619.
