Vintage themed show to support charity

A FASHION show will be held later this month to raise money for charity.

The show at Todmorden Town Hall on August 25 at 7pm will see a number of local models wearing a collection of vintage inspired garments by a local designer.

There will also be a display of vintage jewellery and stalls selling items including vintage furniture at the event, held in aid of Overgate Hospice.

Organiser Gemma Rowbottom thanked Morrisons supermarket in Todmorden for supplying food for the event and the Hippodrome Theatre for providing staging and other equipment.

A team of graduates led by Imogen Thorpe and Amy Lee will be in charge of hair and make-up.

The show is being sponsored by Todmorden Town Council, who have covered the cost of hiring the town hall for the event.

Other entertainment on the night includes music from singer Sophie Langley. There will also be a bar.

Gemma said any donations of raffle prizes would be welcome.

Tickets priced £4 - which includes a drink and snacks - are available from the Second Time Round shop on Halifax Road, Todmorden; the Todmorden branch of Overgate Hospice; and from Halo.
