Over 50 people attended a charity fashion show at M&Co on High Street Nantwich on Thursday 15th September, which raised more than £400 for Climb.

Models, including staff, customers and their families and friends from the local community, took a turn on the catwalk, showcasing the latest seasonal fashions from the ladies, men’s and children’s collections.

The event was organised by Penny Lewis, Store Manager at the Nantwich branch of M&Co, after discussions with Lesley Greene, the founder of Climb.

Penny said “We hold a fashion show twice a year and they are always well supported events and a lot of fun to do.  When Climb approached us we were only too pleased to run a show for such a worthy cause that helps so many families in the UK and worldwide, but also has its roots firmly in the local community.”

In addition to the fashion show, the evening included a raffle with prizes such as pamper hampers and a signed book and goody bag from author Milly Johnson.  Guests were treated to refreshments and delicious home-baked cupcakes as well as an exclusive discount on purchases in the store.

Joanne Taylor, Fundraising and Events Manager at Climb said: “We would like to thank Penny and the team at M&Co for all their hard work and enthusiasm, the fabulous models and of course the generous support of all the guests.  It was a lovely event with a great atmosphere.  Having the support of the local community is very important to Climb, and fundraising events such as these help us to provide bespoke support to families and professionals affected by Inherited Metabolic Diseases.”
