Charity Fashion Show Hosted by the Ladies at Bethany City Church Sunderland

16th June 2019

For the 3rd year running this fabulous fashion show proved to be a spectacular event. Utilising clothes donated to BBK, the models on the catwalk really knew how to strut their stuff. During the interval, guests enjoyed homemade cakes, and the tension built over who would be quick enough to snap up the Hugo Boss shirt or Monsoon maxi dress. 
Alongside the fashion show, a sale table was available with beautiful items from the BBK store, and a short presentation was given by trustee Maureen Nevitt, who took us through the projects BBK serves. The event brought in a combined total of £1667 which was a wonderful achievement by all.
