For a third successive year community staff at Elgin’s Asda store are behind a show at Elgin Town Hall that will give young and old volunteers alike a taste of the catwalk – while raising funds for children throughout Moray.
Emma Penman and Louise George have already helped an army of local community volunteers to raise thousands of pounds for local good causes. One of the first initiatives they launched was a charity fashion show, displaying the latest autumn/winter catalogue at Asda in such a unique manner that it has become a regular feature in Moray.
Louise said: “For the last couple of years we have been delighted by the way that the annual Fashion Show has been grasped not only by the people of Moray but by the volunteers who have come forward to give their time to show off our latest fashions.
“We select a ‘theme’ each year and for 2013 that is the year of Natural Scotland. We have linked with ‘Dynamic Visions’, a group of young and very keen photographers, who have organised a competition around all the schools in Moray aimed at encouraging young people to get out in the area and take still and moving images of what Moray means to them.
“The winners of that competition will be announced on the night of our 2013 Fashion Show – which is set to be another super evening of fashion, fun and entertainment.
“As well as the fashion show itself we have Highland Dancing from the June Roy School of Dance and Callum McLeod and Stuart McLeod, who are fine singers from Lossiemouth and Elgin High Schools.
“There will also be a choral performance and one lucky person will leave Elgin Town Hall with an iPad Mini, the main prize in our raffle.”
Proceeds from the evening, which takes place on November 6, will go to MFR’s Cash for Kids. Tickets are available now from the service desk at Asda’s in Elgin at just £6.
Meanwhile there is still time for entries to be made to the ‘Dynamic Visions’ photography and video competition – details can be found on the Dynamic Visions Facebook page.
