Fund raiser


When I joined St Peter's Church in Shipley, quite a few years ago now, I had not expected the upturn in my social life that quickly followed!  There's always something going on: regular meetings of all sorts (including the Photography Group that I belong to) and numerous one-off events.  One of my friends recently offered to get me a ticket for a charity fund-raising evening.... another Vintage Fashion Show.  The next thing I knew, I had been persuaded into being a model for the event. (They obviously needed some vintage models to go with the clothes....)

Last night was a 'trying-on' session - rather fun, sorting through piles of clothes to see what would fit and look 'cat-walk appropriate'.  I have ended up with five different outfits, so I will have to manage some quick changes.  I have to say that vintage is not something I generally buy (apart from the items I own that have become vintage!) but it is interesting trying shapes and colours you perhaps wouldn't normally be drawn to.   All I need to do now is practise that model walk!

The show is this Saturday 15 October at 7pm and it's in a good cause, raising funds for The Zephaniah Trust, a local Christian organisation working with children, mainly within Bradford's schools, using creative means to communicate the love of God in simple but effective ways.

  4. Sounds like fun, Jenny! You might just become the next famous runway model! :-) I love that blue dress in the photo, though I'm pretty sure it wouldn't look anything like that on me. lol
