Model performance at fundraising fashion show
The sixth annual Breast Cancer Fashion Show at the Grand Arcade in Cambridge has taken place.
On Thursday, October 17, 20 breast cancer patients modelled clothes that are available in the shopping centre.
The show helps to raise funds for Addenbrooke’s to aid those with breast cancer.
The event was organised by Jenny Mason and Natalie Emuss.
Jenny, who is also the manager of the Grand Arcade’s Rigby & Peller store, said: “The reaction to it was absolutely amazing – everybody said it was the best one.
“It’s the models who make the show.
"When you’ve got ladies who have been through what they’ve been through and they come out and you can see the smiles on their faces – and they’ve got their supporters there – it’s just empowering to see these strong, amazing women.”
Over the years, funds raised from the Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal have helped renovate quiet rooms, buy specialist ultrasound scanners and support a cutting-edge research programme to help make treatment more targeted and effective.
Last year, the fashion show raised £11,125.57.
