FASHION SHOW FOR THE NSPCC
and an evening of entertainment are being brought to Merseyside to
raise money for the NSPCC Safe Place Appeal.
The Liverpool club of Soroptimist International are holding the
fashion show at the Holiday Inn on Lime Street on 24 May at 7pm and
are inviting all of Merseyside to come along. Tickets cost £25
per head and will include a 3 course meal, entertainment from
vocalist Brian Le Vell and a fashion show from John Lewis. The
department store has shown its support by also providing local
models, raffle prizes, a free make-up stand and a cosmetics prize.
Soroptimist International is the world’s largest classified service
organisation of women in management and the professions, working
through service projects to advance human rights and the status of
women. Sharon Bird has chosen the NSPCC Safe Place Appeal as
her nominated charity during her 18 month presidency of the
Liverpool club. She is delighted that three other local Soroptimist
clubs - Ormskirk, Crosby and Widnes – are working with Liverpool to
ensure it’s a top night for fundraising.
All monies raised will go to the NSPCC’s Safe Place Appeal which has
funded the soon-to-be opened centre on Great Homer Street in the
heart of the City. The appeal continues to fundraise to provide the
centre with 10 years running costs.
Sharon said:- “As a paediatric nurse children have always been
an important element of my life so it was a natural thing to select
it as our charity of the year. The Safe Place centre will be a
fantastic service for vulnerable children and their families in
Liverpool. The Liverpool Soroptimists are thrilled to organise such
a lavish event to fundraise for the NSPCC Safe Place Appeal.”
Hazel Russell, the NSPCC’s community appeals manager said:-
“The NSPCC would like to say a big thank you to all involved in this
great event, which will help the NSPCC to protect more children in
Liverpool from abuse. Important child protection services which will
soon be moved to our new Liverpool centre would not be possible
without the backing of donors, supporters and people attending
events like this.”
