Banbridge’s Crozier House and Donard School have teamed up to present what’s being billed as a fun-filled,
fundraising fashion event.
The June 7 event in the Parish Centre at Scarva Road, Banbridge is being staged with the help of Nanny’s Closet, local purveyor of vintage-wear and bespoke millinery.
According to organisers it will include “an eclectic range of vintage-wear along with show-stopping, winning ladies’ day outfits”.
A spokesperson said: “If you want ideas of what to wear to your next wedding or day at the races don’t miss out on this local fashion event . . . with spring well underway and summer fast approaching it’s a great time to attend a ladies’ day at the races and the perfect time for weddings.
“This fashion show will show you how to revamp and update your wardrobe for all those special occasions and demonstrate that there is no need to break the bank when it comes to sourcing the perfect outfit.
“What’s even better is the fact that the majority of outfits on show are all one-off pieces, so there will be no risk of turning up in the same outfit as someone else.”
Staff and residents at Crozier House and pupils and staff at Donard School are hoping for support from the local community to help raise much-needed funds.
All proceeds will go towards providing a new 1950’s-inspired kitchen and raised garden beds for Crozier House and funding special outings and recreational days to help stimulate and improve educational and personal development among the pupils of Donard School.
“So please make sure to save the date in your diary,” the spokesperson said. “Come to this worthwhile local event and support your local community.
“Tickets are only £10 per person, which includes live entertainment, with DJ, light refreshments and the chance to partake in a raffle.”
The event will get underway at 6.30pm on the day and tickets are available from Crozier House, Donard School or by calling Angela on 078 0113 3399 or Melanie on 078 8040 0194.
