A NIGHT of fashion and fun at a Scarborough store has provided a £70 boost for local charity Ellie’s Fund.
Youngsters from Scalby School spent the evening at New Look in the Brunswick Shopping Centre offering a gift wrapping service in return for a donation.
The stores management team also baked cakes for sale and held a raffle for the fund.
Store manager Alice Read said: “We were supporting Ellie’s Fund as part of our VIP shopping night and it went really well.
“Quite a few people were going for the gift wrapping and the girls did a great job. They were also helping the customers out.
“The cakes sold out and the raffle was popular too,”
Miss Read added that representatives from The Body Shop were also in store offering makeovers.
The fundraising link came about after the store received a letter from the Scalby School pupils, asking if they could come in and offer to wrap gifts.
Ellie’s Fund is the school’s Year 11 chosen charity of the year, as its namesake Ellie Othick-Bowmaker was a pupil there.
Ellie died on Valentine’s Day aged just 14 after battling two brain tumours.
