FUN and fashion were the order of the day at a glamorous fundraiser in Staxton.

A fashion show in aid of St Peter’s Church in Willerby was held at the Yorkshire Wolds Gallery.

The event featured clothing from Cosmetique and hats from Get Ahead Hats.

It was also supported by Griffin Jewellers in Bridlington, who donated a bracelet for the raffle, and Hays Travel of Malton, who donated a travel voucher.

The event was attended by more than 100 people and raised £1,500 for church funds.

Janet Bowles, who helped organise the show, said: “We were absolutely delighted with it and with the number of people who came.

“There was a wonderful raffle with some great prizes. It was a really lovely evening.”

Virginia Sutton, owner of the Yorkshire Wolds Gallery, said she was delighted to be asked to host the event.

She said: “We’ve had various concerts for the church up here and it’s a brilliant venue to hold a fashion show.

“It was a great success.”
