Pied Piper struts its stuff at catwalk show

Fashionistas were able to bag a bargain and do their bit for charity at a fashion show at Blade Honda in Quedgeley, in aid of the Pied Piper Appeal childrens charity.

More than 100 guests arrived fashionably suited and booted to the fun filled event which saw guest of honour, Gloucester Rugby player Alex Brown, make his catwalk debut.

The professional athlete has chosen to support the Pied Piper for his benefit year, and is keen to raise as much money as possible for the Gloucester based childrens charity.

Speaking at the event Alex said: I have two kids so I wanted to support a childrens charity, and Pied Piper was my first choice. They really are doing some amazing things for the children of Gloucestershire.

Alongside Alex, a group of volunteer models took to the runway to show off a variety of donated clothing, all up for grabs for as little as 50p a pop.

An expert team from Cream Hairdressers made sure the models were catwalk ready by providing all the hair and makeup for the glamorous event.

The show was compered by Nick Broady of Avenue cars and Gloucestershire Under 18 Volunteers Hero Charity Person Of The Year Annia Fabian, who entertained the guests and talked them through each of the catwalk looks.

Speaking after the event Nick Broady vice Chair of the charity said: It was great fun, a really brilliant event for The Pied Piper. We have had great support from the team at Cream and lots of amazing clothes donated.

Id like to say a big thank you to Blade Honda for providing the venue, Attwoolls for the chairs and stage and of course all of the Pied Piper team who have spent months making sure all of the clothes are clean and ready to be sold.

Its been an amazing evening, with some really great clothes and fantastic bargains. Ive seen lots of people running around and shopping like crazy, raising lots of money for The Pied Piper Appeal.

The event was a roaring success, with shopaholics bagging themselves bags full of bargains, emptying the rails and raising over 2,000 for The Pied Piper Appeal.

All of the money raised will go towards providing services and equipment to Gloucester Royals Childrens ward. For more information or to make a donation visit www.piedpiperappeal.co.uk
