Kay set for catwalk extravaganza

Kay Smith will be on model behaviour when she takes to the catwalk for a Bluebell Wood fashion show on Thursday 22 March.

Kay, from Whiston, who volunteers at Bluebell Wood’s shop in Rotherham every Tuesday, will be among hospice staff and supporters modelling the best in preloved fashion on the catwalk at Dinnington Resource Centre.

Showcasing men and women’s evening, summer and bridal wear from Bluebell Wood’s Dinnington and Rotherham shops, the event will offer guests runway style at a fraction of the price. Everything in the show will be available to buy on the night, with all proceeds going to South Yorkshire’s only children’s hospice.

As well as an amazing catwalk performance, there will be stalls of bags, shoes and other accessories, a tombola and raffle.

The evening will be hosted by Sunny Allison, Bluebell Wood’s Head of Retail. Sunny said: “Our shops are building a great reputation for stocking high quality preloved fashion, with some of the very best second hand bridal wear, evening wear and designer wear for men and women.

“Everything will be fully cleaned and in immaculate condition and definitely deserves to be seen on the runway. This is an ideal opportunity to get your first pick of our best clothes for this summer, find the perfect prom gown or a flawless wedding suit or dress.

“It’s going to be a fun-filled evening and a cost-conscious fashionista’s dream. Every item bought will also help Bluebell Wood do even more for children and young adults with life-shortening and life-threatening conditions.”

Tickets for the fashion show can be bought in advance for £3 each from Bluebell Wood shops in Wellgate, Rotherham and Laughton Road, Dinnington. The event starts at 5.00pm on Thursday 22 March. Cash only on the night.
