News Putting on the autumn style at hospice shop’s first fashion show PRE-LOVED clothes will be in the spotlight this month, as St Peter’s Hospice hosts its first ever fashion show at its Gloucester Road store. The ‘Autumn Affair’ event – being held on October 8 – will feature womenswear, menswear and childrenswear with brands such as Topshop, Boden, Ben Sherman, Dune, Zara, Laura Ashley and Next all on display. The show will be raising money for Bristol’s only adult hospice, while giving shoppers a glimpse of this year’s autumn/ winter trends. St Peter’s Hospice shop area manager Victoria Canavan said: “We are really looking forward to our first ever fashion show in October and we’re busy now picking out all the very best winterwear for the event. “Guests will be treated to an exciting fashion show as well as the chance to shop for bargains and they will also be entered into our raffle.” She added: “We are lucky to receive


hundreds and hundreds of fabulous quality clothing, shoes and accessories every season, so this event will give people the chance to refresh their wardrobes at a fraction of the original price. “With designer and high street brands available, it will be the perfect time to get together with friends and shop for a good cause. Money raised will go towards caring for those with life-limiting illnesses in Bristol.” As Bristol’s only adult hospice, St Peter’s cares for more than 2,670 patients each year as well as supporting family members. All services are provided free of charge but this care costs around £18,000 a day. Tickets are £5 each and are available in store now. Guests will be able to redeem their ticket price against any purchases made on the night and will be automatically entered into a prize draw. Doors will open at 6pm, with the fashion show running from 6.30-9.00pm. For more information visit uk
