A young woman with a huge heart and sharp eye for fashion will be presenting a major charity event that combines fashion, dance, and shopping in September. The Fashion Show, happening in Gareth Pugh's hometown of Sunderland, is the vision of Nikki Lee who has spent the past year supporting relief efforts in Africa, including seven weeks building and teaching in Malawi for Joshua Orphan & Community Care.
Next year, Nikki will return to Africa to work with Joshua and Save the Children. They will distribute the money from this event to those in need in Malawi and sufferers of the drought in east Africa. To assure those who give that their contribution really counts, Nikki will be emailing pictures and updates from Africa, to each person who donates to The Fashion Show, to illustrate the difference they've made in the lives of the people. She wants you to know your money is not going to admin fees!
The Fashion Show is Sunday 25th September at the Roker Hotel, Sunderland at 4pm. The first 50 guests to arrive receive a Debenhams goodie bag, and everyone will be treated to wine and chocolate covered strawberries.
Retailers will be donating a portion of their sales to the charities. I'll be there with a pop-up Swelle Boutique, so if you're in the north east please come by to say hello and support these very worthy charities.
Tickets are available for £10. To purchase please call Nikki at 07828118191 or visit The Fashion Show: Charity Event on Facebook to find sellers near you.
