“We can’t quite believe that this is our 25th sell out fashion show that was created by the boutiques original owner Tony Robinson in memory of his first wife who he lost to cancer, and we have been delighted to continue with the event since we obtained ownership of the boutique 8 years ago” said Russell Jones Robinsons of Bawtry.

Dr Kathryn Scott, Chief Executive at Yorkshire Cancer Research, said: “It’s wonderful to be chosen once again as the charity partner for Robinson of Bawtry’s brilliant fashion show. The fact that the event is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year is testament to all the hard work and commitment that has gone into making it such a huge success. We’d like to thank everyone who has supported the show since it first began back in 1992.
 
“Over the years, this event has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for Yorkshire Cancer Research. This money has played a vital role in helping us ensure that people in Yorkshire have access to the very best treatment and care. Thanks to businesses like Robinsons, we have been able to invest in life-saving projects, from community health initiatives to clinical trials.”
 
The show will feature iconic contemporary fashion brands including Armani, Hugo Boss, Mulberry, Escada, Jacob Cohen, Belstaff, Michael Kors, Versace, Jeffery West and Eton.
 
“Thanks go to our sponsors Alexander Calder Financial Challenge and also Freemantle Media for their support and to all our loyal customers who attend the event each year giving generously and helping us to create a lasting legacy,” said Russell. “Without them this would not be possible and for that we are grateful. The longevity of this event is testament to the support they gave Tony and now us as we continue to generate funds for vital research into cancer in the Yorkshire region.”
 
A Champagne draw, auction and raffle will add to the fun with a Mulberry bag being up for grabs in the annual game of ‘Heads and Tails’ along with a programme of first class entertainment.

Notes to Editors

  • Harrogate-based Yorkshire Cancer Research was founded in 1925 and is the largest independent regional cancer charity in England (Registered Charity 516898). We are not part of a national charity.
  • We are committed to reducing the devastating impact of cancer on the lives of people living in Yorkshire.
  • Our mission is to work in partnership, fund research and support initiatives that will help people in Yorkshire avoid, survive and cope with cancer.
  • Current statistics show that 565 people are diagnosed with cancer in Yorkshire every week. Incidence and mortality rates are higher than the England average due to social deprivation, post-industrialisation and lifestyle choices but also availability of healthcare services and difficulties accessing early diagnostics, clinical trials and the latest treatments.
  • We aim to:
    • Be the leading authority on cancer in Yorkshire, understanding the problems and priorities in the region and sharing knowledge with partners.
    • Raise awareness of cancer and how to prevent it by working in local communities, schools and colleges, sports clubs and with other health-related organisations.
    • Promote screening programmes and fund research that can improve the diagnosis of cancer so we can detect and treat it at the earliest opportunity.
    • Invest in innovative research projects at every stage of a cancer patient’s journey.
    • Campaign for fair and equal access to the very best healthcare services and a greater share of the money spent nationally on research.
