Sue Huntington’s #fashionshow in aid of Wirral Hospice – Wed 18 March 2015, tickets £10 call 0151 343 0778

wirral_hospice_sue_huntington_fashion_show_flyer_2015We are super excited to be working with Sue Huntington on her next fashion show! Having seen the excitement first hand at her previous shows, we are privileged to have been selected by Sue to benefit from the proceeds of her latest show.

Sue has the most amazing shop in Heswall and her fashion shows have a reputation near and far for launching casual yet sophisticated seasonal outfits as well as high glamour dresses and outfits for glitzy occasions and weddings. There’s always lots of oohing and aahing in the audience and people queue around the block to get into Sue’s shop the next day!

Sue’s fashion show will held in the stunning Walled Garden Marquee at Thornton Manor, Thornton Hough CH63 1JB. Doors will open at 7 for pre-show drinks and the show will start promptly at 7.30pm.

We’ve got some wonderful raffle prizes lined up for our guests to be in with a chance of winning. Unfortunately we can’t say too much at this stage but let’s just say, there’s definitely a designer handbag and an overnight stay in a plush hotel in there!

We’re hoping to sell 1,000 tickets for the night, which is a tall order but with your help we hope we can! Please spread the word amongst your family and friends, we’d love to see you on the night and we that know Sue would too. She’s been a long-time supporter of Wirral Hospice St John’s so she’s equally delighted to be helping us to raise a fantastic amount of money for our patients, their carers and families.

Please call the Fundraising Office on 0151 343 0778 Mon to Fri 9-5pm or email hayley@wirralhospice.org or michellet@wirralhospice.org to book your tickets, which are only £10 each. Really good value for a fabulous night out!
