Last week we were busy at ER putting on a special Spring/Summer fashion show in aid of Friends of Sussex Hospices! 100 guests were treated to a sit-down catwalk show where professional models Jane, Barbie, Kayleigh and Sandy strutted their stuff in the latest styles from our amazing brands.
Some of the goodie bags waiting for the lucky guests.
Kathy Gore OBE DL, Chair of FSH, begins the show with a speech.
Each guest was treated to a goodie bag with treats kindly donated by some of our brands and suppliers including Brax, Gerry Weber, Michele, Miss Shorthair, Rabe, Partners in Fashion and Just White. There was also an amazing raffle with some truly incredible prizes including a £300 gift voucher donated by Joseph Ribkoff for an outfit of the winner’s choice, a £139 pair of jeans from NYDJ, and £209 towards an outfit from Georgede. Friends of Sussex Hospices also kindly donated some fab prizes themselves including John Lewis vouchers, National Garden vouchers and a beautiful flower trug from Pippin’s nursery. £560 was raised from raffle tickets alone, with a grand total of £2605 raised at the event including ticket sales!

We would like to kindly thank our customers who so generously purchased tickets – all proceeds are going directly to the 12 hospice and care-at-home providers supported by Friends of Sussex Hospices. We would also like to give a huge thank you and congratulations to those from the Friends of Sussex Hospices committee who came and worked so hard helping us host the event. Here at ER we thoroughly enjoyed taking part and feel priveleged to be able to work with such a worthwhile charity.
