A charity with two pre-loved clothing shops in Buxton showed off its glamorous side as it hosted a fashion show fundraiser in Bakewell.
Valley CiDS - or Christians Involved in Developing Society - took to the catwalk at Bakewell Town Hall on Thursday, April 14, as volunteers modelled styles from the charity’s Lighthouse shops.
Event manager Harriet Webster said: “The show was a huge success - not only raising an impressive amount of money but giving us the chance to capture a wide audience for the vital work we do with children and young people over Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. It was a fantastic triumph.”
As well as donated stock from Lighthouse stores, models showcased the charity’s specialist lines Vintage and Retro and Purple Robes bridal wear.
The models were not the only eye-catching thing on an evening which also featured pop-up shops, a live band and grand raffle, bringing in more vital funds.
Valley CiDS began in Swanwick in 2000, born out of a group who would meet to pray for local schools.
It has since grown to establish 26 charity shops, funding outreach work in more than 70 primary schools and youth centres.
