Brave Niamh inspires charity fashion show
A RETAILER in Knutsford will be holding a night of fashion on Friday to support one of their employee’s daughters who is battling leukaemia.
From 6pm, M&Co, on Canute Place, will welcome guests to their store for their charity fashion show, with all proceeds going to the Ronald MacDonald House.
The charity has played a major role in eight-year-old Niamh Curbishley’s life since she was diagnosed with leukaemia this summer.
The Egerton Primary School student was diagnosed with cancer of the blood in July after receiving treatment for suspected meningitis.
Niamh’s family are hoping to raise £5,000 for Ronald McDonald House so one of the rooms at its Manchester facility will be named after the youngster.
The Ronald McDonald House has provided mum Schula and partner Glenn, as well as Niamh’s sisters Hannah and Cerys, with somewhere to stay while she is in hospital.
Schula, who works at M&Co, said: “We have raised £2,000 so far so we are nearly halfway there. We are hoping this event will take us to the halfway mark and closer to reaching our target.”
The evening will begin with a fashion show, giving the audience the chance to view highlights from the M&Co autumn collection.
After the show guests can browse their favourite items, with the chance to try on or make any purchases with the 10 per cent discount voucher they will receive on the night.
Tickets are £6 each, and are on sale in the M&Co Knutsford store. On purchasing a ticket, all attendees will receive 10 per cent off on the night and refreshments will be provided.
Limited tickets are available and will be sold on a first-come first-served basis. For tickets call Schula on 07949 343036.
