A FASHION show was held at a Congresbury hotel to raise money for charity.

The show took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Cadbury House hotel in Frost Hill.

It saw a range of fashionable items on sale at reduced prices, with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support.

The event was organised by the North Somerset Macpack team, which has raised money for Macmillan across North Somerset for more than 20 years.

Its chairman Liz Frier said: “Nearly 190 people came along and enjoyed a glass of wine while watching the fashion show.

“We also had a raffle with some really lovely prizes, including a Sunday lunch for four and a day out to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Wraxall.

“The evening raised £1,729 for Macmillan, which is great.”
