Soroptimist Fashion Show for Tenovus a spectacular Success

Recently over ninety guests attended SI Tenby’s annual charity fashion show, held at the Heywood Spa Hotel.  The purpose of the event was to raise funds for Tenovus which is one of SI Tenby President Iris Davies’s selected charities during her year of office.

The show was sponsored by the prestigious fashion outlet ‘Ededa J’, based in Newcastle Emlyn. The generous co-operation of the management and staff ensured that all enjoyed a delightful evening.  Firstly, the guests enjoyed a dazzling display of the latest in fashion. The glamorous models, all members of staff at Edida J, showcased a wide range of leisurewear, accessories and outdoor apparel.

Next there was a short interval when everyone partook of the hotel’s delicious canapés, accompanied by a glass of wine or a soft drink. The raffle was then drawn.  Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, as well as donations from club members, there was a magnificent array of prizes, tempting most guests to purchase a large number of tickets.

The show then continued with an impressive display of evening and occasion clothing, in including some wonderful hats and fascinators.  All items were available in styles to suit every age and taste.

President Iris would like to thank all those who helped to make the event such a success, particularly the staff, Meinir, Ffion, Elin and other models from Ededa J, Paul and his staff at the Heywood Spa Hotel and Tim from ‘Behind the Lens Media’ who provided all rthe event photography.  Special thanks must also be given to SI Tenby Social Secretary Pam Maggs for all her hard work in organising and promoting the event.

All agreed that it had been a very pleasant and worthwhile way to spend a rainy spring evening and, most importantly, the evening raised a significant amount for Tenovus.

 

RECENT CHARITY EVENTS

Light up the Night – Charity Walk for Tenovus – 22nd August 2017

Tenby Soroptomists hold Charity Lunch for the Paul Sartori Foundation – March 2017

Last Sunday SI Tenby President Eleanor Parker was delighted to welcome a large number of fellow Soroptimists, family and friends to the Giltar Hotel for a Charity Lunch in aid of the Paul Sartori Foundation, one of President Eleanor’s chosen charities during her year of office. Special guests for this event included SI Wales South Regional President Bobbie Sheldrake, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the Paul Sartori Foundation, Mr. Charles Clewitt, and his Fellow Trustee Mr. Phil Thompson.

After everyone had enjoyed a superb lunch, Mr.Thompson gave a very informative talk about the work of the Paul Sartori Foundation.  It is not a national charity, but was set up by the Pembrokeshire community to serve people living with life limiting illnesses.  There is not another Paul Sartori Foundation Hospice service anywhere else in the United Kingdom: it is unique to Pembrokeshire. Care can be provided directly into the patients’ homes, but the charity also aims to help relatives and immediate carers during the illness and through the bereavement period.  This invaluable service is offered free of charge and, whilst financial support is given by both the National Health Service and Pembrokeshire County Council, this only reaches around 13% of the total needed to operate the various services. Thanks to the generosity of the people of Pembrokeshire, the local community raises the other 87%, through fund-raising, participating in events, shopping at the Sartori retail outlets or donating on a regular basis.

Mr. Thompson concluded his talk by expressing his gratitude to SI Tenby for their continued support for the Paul Sartori Foundation. SI Tenby FGM Co-ordinator Wendy Bell, on behalf of the Club, next thanked Mr. Thompson for giving such an informative insight into the work carried out by the Foundation. President Eleanor subsequently drew the raffle, ably assisted by Master of Ceremonies SI Tenby Social Secretary Pam Maggs. A large range of sought-after prizes was on offer, thanks to generous donations from local businesses and club members. President Eleanor was then pleased to announce that proceeds from both the lunch and the raffle exceeded over £700 .  She hoped to be able to present Mr Thompson with a cheque, which would include other money raised by the Club for the Paul Sartori Foundation, at the end of her year of office in April.

Finally, President Eleanor thanked all those who had helped to make this event such a success; notably, SI Tenby club members, but especially Pam Maggs for all her hard work in organising and promoting the Charity Lunch.  Thanks, as always, were extended to Patrick, Malcolm and their staff at the Giltar Hotel for the excellent hospitality.

All agreed that it had been a most enjoyable and worthwhile way to pass the time on a wet and windy March afternoon.

On behalf of SI Tenby, President Eleanor Parker would like to thank everyone who helped to make the occasion such a success, especially TP Hughes, Jago and Tenby Rocks, all the models and their assistant ‘dressers’, President Elect Iris Davies and her team for overseeing the raffle, and photographer Christopher Sleight, who kindly gave up his Sunday afternoon in order to provide a wonderful pictorial record of the event.
