Local retailers and students rally round to celebrate 25th anniversary of ChildLine
Anglia Ruskin University is hosting an NSPCC charity fashion show and auction in Cambridge on Wednesday, 7 March (7pm) to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ChildLine.
Organised by the NSPCC in conjunction with local fashion retailers Cuckoo and Le Reve, and students from Anglia Ruskin’s BA (Hons) Fashion Design course, all proceeds from the event will go to the charity.
Kate Armstrong, of NSPCC South Cambridgeshire, is excited to be working with the retailers and Anglia Ruskin students on this important fundraising initiative. She said:
The evening’s highlight, the catwalk show, will feature designs from Anglia Ruskin students, Cuckoo’s spring collection for women, lingerie and swimwear from Le Reve and bespoke hats by Abigail Crampton Millinery.
Tickets cost £20, which includes a free welcome drink and goodie bag, and there will be opportunities to buy before and after the catwalk show. The event will also feature a burlesque show, a special prize draw and a fashion auction overseen by Will Axon of Rowley Fine Art Auctioneers, who appears regularly on BBC TV’s Flog It!
The evening, which is co-sponsored by Elms Cambridge BMW, also aims to highlight the invaluable work of the NSPCC and ChildLine.
