The fashion show will feature some of the best items which have been donated to its charity shop Dee’s Den, in Halesworth’s Steeple End, to raise money to support people with life-changing illnesses and their families and carers.

The Dee’s Den fashion show will see all of the second-hand clothes that are featured on the catwalk available to buy at the end of the show, along with additional clothing and specially-chosen accessories from Dee’s Den, which is run by volunteers.

All of the money raised will go to the Pear Tree Fund and Kevin Vaughan, chief executive of the Pear Tree Fund, said: “This promises to be a fantastic evening of glitz and glamour which will give people the chance to see a catwalk show before purchasing some of the wonderful items which have been donated to Dee’s Den.

“We would encourage anyone who is interested in updating their wardrobe to get their tickets now and help us make a difference to vulnerable local people when they need it most.”
