Farleigh Fashion show

The fashion show was held last night at the Hawthorns near Braintree in aid of The Farleigh Hospice in Broomfield. Cherry and i were given the task of selling raffle tickets and admissions. We managed to take £350, but we are still waiting to hear the final amount that the evening made. Shelia has now let me know that we raised One Thousand Pounds.....Did'nt we do well !!!

The raffle prizes ranged from chocolates to soft toys.

The venue. Kindly loaned  by the manager of the Hawthorns retirement home.

Dave Monk from BBC Essex radio kindly compared the evening. He did a great job describing what each model was wearing.Dave was the one on the left.

 Shelia, modeling some night wear, love the saucy pose and the teddy........

What a great model Linda was,!! all dressed up in her sexy nightie. Shame about the curlers!!!!

Here Linda is again all dressed up for a country walk. Just love her boots..

As the only male model i thought he was very brave to walk the catwalk. He reminded me of my lovely son Ben.....

These brave ladies were waiting for their call to model their outfits. All the outfits and accessories were for sale afterwards. 

All dressed up for the wedding. How elegant they all look..........A big thankyou to all involved. The evening was a great success............

Today i had some very sad news that a family friend  died with Pancreatic cancer. He was only 65. My heart goes out to his family and friends xxxxxxxxxxx

 . This is why charities like the Farleigh fundraising team do such a great job. 

On a happier note it is my little grandaughters birthday today she is 3 years old.
Happy Birthday Mia xxxx
