Charity FUNdraising Fashion Show

Added on 14 November 2013

For the second year running, The Engine Room Restaurant at Poundbury Gardens in Dorchester will be transformed into a catwalk as the team hosts a FUNdraising Fashion Show in aid of Weldmar Hospicecare Trust.

Tickets for the event, on Thursday 28th November from 6.30pm - 9:00pm, are now on sale at Poundbury Gardens and all proceeds will be donated to the Weldmar Hospicecare Trust, an independent charity providing specialist palliative care to people in north, south and west Dorset.

James Foster-Pegg, director at Poundbury Gardens comments: "We wanted to run another FUNdraising Fashion Show this year with Weldmar as we are all firm supporters of the Charity and last year's fashion show was such a success. The fashion show attracted 120 people who came to watch us strut our stuff on the catwalk, and we managed to raise a fantastic £800. We really hope that people come and support us and Weldmar again to raise another significant amount."

During the evening, country inspired clothes will be 'modelled' by the team from The Gardens Group and by staff and volunteers from Weldmar Hospicecare Trust - brands such as Joules, Jack Murphy and Hunter will be worn by the 'models' who may need a certain amount of encouragement. There will be refreshments, a charity raffle and guests can expect a few surprises as some of the gardening team have a few up their sleeves!

Tickets are available in advance from Poundbury Gardens, Peverell Avenue, Poundbury DT1 3RT, The Weldmar Hospicecare Trust on telephone 01305 261800 and on the door on the night.
