The recent “Reach Out” Fashion Show at the Marina Bar was again an outstanding success.
Organisers David and Lorraine Whitney of Reach Out Shop 2 together with their team of dedicated helpers ensured the afternoon went along as planned. With Raffle, Tombola, Name the Bear and various stalls to delight the crowds the result was a very acceptable 1202 Euros for the charity.
Again it was a little like the Oxford Street January Sales as customers jostled for position to get at all the bargain clothing, shoes and bags on sale. Rita and Dave of the Marina Bar together with their staff worked their socks off, serving food and drinks to the hoards of people and once again proved their worth as charitable fund raisers.
Their continued book sales for the charity helped raise the final total . Thanks must go to everybody who helped or donated items for the event and a special mention must go to Wendy Lawrenson, who came to see the Fashion Show and ended up being in it due to the illness of one of the models..
With half an hour to prepare herself she proved to be a natural and was a perfect fit for the clothing on show.
All in all a great afternoon, great atmosphere and a good advert for the shop’s next event which is a “Titanic” themed evening meal with prizes, quiz and singer on Thursday the 16th May .again at the Marina Bar. Full details out shortly..
