Selby volunteers host charity fashion show for Yorkshire Cancer Research

Date: 28 June 2022

Selby volunteers hosted a charity fashion show to raise funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Members of the charity’s Selby Volunteer Group raised more than £620 after organising the event.

Kay Enion, Chair of the group, said: “We were nervous as the fashion show was one of our first events since the pandemic, but it went really well.

“Yorkshire Cancer Research is a charity close to the hearts of our supporters. Most, if not all, will know someone affected by cancer, and they came to the fashion show for an enjoyable evening out while helping to raise money for our local cancer charity.”

The fashion show was supported by Complete Clothing Company, which is run by Kath Finan. Kath brought along a huge selection of this season’s fashion, which was modelled by Selby volunteers, as well as their friends and family. After the fashion show, the clothes were available for the guests to buy.

Kay continued: “The ‘models’ really stepped up the mark. They soon lost any nerves, revelling in a perfect excuse to try clothes that they possibly wouldn’t have worn normally.

“Without them, we wouldn’t have had a show and I want to say a huge thank you to all of them.”

The Selby Volunteer Group was first formed in 1967, and in that time they have raised more than £200,000 to help prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer in Yorkshire.
