Women against cancer fashion show

An evening of women against cancer is being held next week to raise money for two local causes helping people to fight the disease.

On Thursday night (2 May) there will be an evening of fun, fashion, food and entertainment in conjunction with Meadow, the clothing shop on Skinner Street and Whitby Pavilion.

It is to support Carolyn Craven, a friend of Meadow owner Caroline Collier, in her efforts to raise funds for Women v Cancer where she and a friend are embarking upon a 400 km cycle ride in Cuba.

The second charity benefitting from the event is St Catherine’s Hospice which cares for people and their families in Whitby, Ryedale and Scarborough.

The night includes entertainment by Michael Buble type singer Luke Michael who was a knockout at Meadow’s last fashion show.

There will also be a dance presentation from LP Dance Studio and one of the highlight’s of the evening will be the Meadow fashion show with clothes for spring and summer being modelled by real women of varied ages, shapes and sizes including Carolyn Craven with her friend Shirley helping behind the scenes and the Whitby Gazette’s editorial assistant Bernice Smith, helped out by reporter turned fashion dresser for the evening Emma Spencer.

People who want to support the evening can attend the fashion show only or enjoy the fashion show, fizz and a two course dinner.

Tickets (£10 for show or £25 for fashion show, fizz and dinner) are available from Meadow on 820563 or the Pavilion in person or by ringing 604855.

A round-up of pictures taken on the night by Gazette photographer Ceri Oakes will feature in a forthcoming issue of the paper.
