Charity Fashion Show Struts the Catwalk for Pendleside Hospice

Pendleside Hospice

A LOCAL insurance company is organising a charity Fashion Show and shopping event on 8th September,  as part of their ongoing fundraising efforts for the Pendleside Hospice Corporate Challenge.

Earby-based West Craven Insurance Services are hosting the event at St Josephs Community Centre in Barnoldswick,

As well as a glass of fizz on arrival and a charity raffle there’ll be the opportunity to buy clothes from top high street brands, like River Island, Next, Dorothy Perkins, Urban Outfitters and many more at up to 75% off.

After the success of last year’s Corporate Challenge, Pendleside Hospice are running with the idea again this year. The innovative concept of the Corporate Challenge sees the Hospice give companies £50 and asked them to turn it into as much as they can during a four-month period (1st June-30th September).

Lisa Parker West Craven Company Director, said: “We had such a positive experience last year doing the Corporate Challenge, we knew we had to take part again. As well as raising much needed funds for Pendleside Hospice, the Corporate Challenge benefits the businesses taking part,  providing great team-building opportunities, inter-departmental working, and a contribution to the company’s Corporate and Social Responsibility efforts, which we take very seriously. It’s also good to know that we’ve made a positive contribution to the continued work the hospice does in helping people living with a life-limiting illnesses”

Christina Cope, from Pendleside Hospice, added: “It’s great to see so many prominent local businesses like West Craven Insurance taking part in the challenge again and getting so much commitment from all their members of staff. We’re grateful for all the additional funds raised through the Corporate Challenge.”
