Fashion show success may be repeated

ANOTHER fashion show is being planned to raise funds for the Holy Cross Church in Daventry, following the success of an event earlier this month.

More than £1,700 was raised at the Daventry Court Hotel at the charity fashion show on July 6, which around 280 people attended.

The church needs to raise £129,000 by the end of the year to activate a grant from English heritage and carry out essential maintenance work.

If the work is not completed the church may be forced to close. So far more than £12,000 has been raised.

It’s hoped the second fashion show will be held sometime in autumn.
