THE INNER Wheel Club of Dursley has raised thousands of pounds for charity after holding a fashion show at Swinhay House in Wotton-under-Edge.
By kind permission of Renishaw founder Sir David McMurtry, guests were welcomed with a choice of wine and tasty canapés donated by Waitrose at the futuristic mansion.
The event was supported by fashion advisers from John Lewis at The Mall in Cribbs Causeway, with their models showing a full range of clothing from casual to evening wear to suit all tastes.
Accessories company Daisy Accents from Southampton brought along a selection of their merchandise which attracted a great deal of interest and gave a percentage of their takings to charity.
In the interval, guests had the opportunity to look around Swinhay House on Thursday, September 12.
The evening concluded with the drawing of the raffle which included prizes from Waitrose, John Lewis, Daisy Accents, and The Daffodil in Cheltenham.
President of Dursley Inner Wheel, Gill Davis, said the evening was an enjoyable and successful event.
“We’ve had so many emails in thanks since,” she said.
“I think it was well received and people had the opportunity to see Swinhay House.”
With over 150 guests, the evening generated more then £2,500 for The Severn Freewheelers, a voluntary organization providing a free out of hours courier service transporting anything from blood to x-rays for hospitals in Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties.
Some of the proceeds also went to Cotswold Care Hospice, Emmaus Bristol and other Inner Wheel charities.
