Cancer charity appeals for volunteers for its fashion show

A Purley-based cancer centre is seeking volunteers to help with a fund-raising fashion show they are planning for the spring – and they are especially seeking help from hair and make-up experts.

The South East Cancer Help Centre is staging its fashion show on March 11 at St John the Baptist Church Hall in Purley.

“We are already working with a company which has promised to give us huge discounts on high street clothes but if you sell fashion accessories, such as jewellery, beauty products, shoes or make-up and cosmetics, then we want to hear from you,” said Eleanor Appleton SECHC’s community fund-raiser.

“Although we are mainly looking for volunteers we will be renting out a few stalls on the day. It’s going to be a fun event and would be a great opportunity to promote your business whilst supporting a local cancer charity at the same time.”

For more information about helping on or before the show, please call Eleanor on 020 8668 0974.

Tickets for the event cost £10 and includes a glass of wine.
