A fashion show and afternoon tea was a stylish fundraiser for disadvantaged children

Beales Of Bolton held a catwalk and afternoon tea event at their store to raise funds for Variety, The Children’s Charity. Organised by Lucy Physick, Andrea Aspen and Judith Culshaw, the event raised £603 for the charity, which is dedicated to improving the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children. The sell-out afternoon, which welcomed 97 guests including the mayor of Bolton, Carole Swarbrick, included high tea, handmade chocolates by Chockle’Arty and a catwalk showcasing their latest fashion range.

Lucy helped to organised the event as part of the Miss Lancashire 2015 competition. ‘I actually won the Miss Charity Lancashire 2015 title and went on to win the Miss Lancashire 2015, which means I will be competing in the Miss England finals next year,’ she said. ‘The event was a huge success. It was lovely to see so many people come together for such a good cause and I am overwhelmed with all the support and generosity from all the staff at Beales as well as the local community. Thanks to everyone who came to the event and special thanks to Alison Cash, the store director, for allowing me to hold this event in aid of Variety.’ w
