Bridgend Soroptimists welcomed 100 guests to a Charity Fashion Show held at the Heronston Hotel in Bridgend. With something for everyone, from casual to formal, several Bridgend Soroptimists were models for the evening and treated the audience to a feast of elegance and sophistication.
The fashion show, which was to raise funds for Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice in Wales and ChoraChori, a charity supporting vulnerable and trafficked girls in Nepal, was supported by Samantha B Ladies Fashions in Ewenny, Bridgend. As well as bringing along some fabulous fashions and compering the evening with great humour, Samantha generously offered a significant donation on clothes bought in the 2 weeks after the event.
There was also entertainment during a short interlude from Rhiannon Skilton (the daughter of one of our members) who shared her beautiful voice with some popular operatic songs. to sing during interludes; raffle to be held and prizes needed , some from local firms if possible.
The event was a huge success and between entrance tickets and a raffle, with a large number of generously donated prizes, over £1000 was raised. This will be split between the two charities.
A huge thank you to everyone involved and all those who supported this fantastic event.
