Charity event raises hundreds for cancer care
WINSCOMBE business Cleopatra’s Wardrobe held a charity fashion show which raised more than �900 for a cancer care organisation.
The Woodborough Road firm held the show at the Lyncombe Lodge Hotel in Churchill, and �903 was raised for the Penny Brohn Cancer Care centre in Pill.
Event organiser and business owner Brenda Ashford said: “I wanted to raise some much needed funds for the charity especially as my sister has cancer and attends the Penny Brohn Centre which gives her invaluable help and support at a crucial time in her life.
“We sold 100 tickets within a week, which was such a surprise to all involved.”
Raffle prizes were donated by a variety of local businesses.
