Fashion show tickets on sale across the town

TICKETS for a ladies fashion show which is raising funds for the Holy Cross Church are now on sale at various places in town.

The Daventry Express office is among the places selling tickets for the show, which will be held on Friday, July 6 at The Daventry Court Hotel on Sedgemoor Way.

Tickets can also be purchased at Belle Femme, New Image and Strictly Hair, which are located in Daventry.

The fashion show was organised in aid of the Daventry Holy Cross Building Fund.

The church needs to raise £129,000 before the end of the year to secure a £197,000 grant being offered by English Heritage.

The Holy Cross has been placed at risk because of the poor condition of its upper level stonework and balustrading.

So far more than £8,000 has been raised and it’s hoped the fashion show can be one of the key fundraising events for the year.

If the funds are not raised the church may be forced to close.

Secretary of the church’s building fund Steve Challen said: “Over 50 lines of ladies clothing from Next, Marks and Spencer, Wallis and more will be modelled and be for sale on the night at discounted prices.

“Complementing the fashion show will be a number of other sellers offering fashion handbags and jewellery

“There will also be demonstrations of beauty products and treatments on offer at the hotel.

“A raffle will be held with a number of generous prizes having been donated by the hotel and other local businesses including a spa day for two, reflexology therapy sessions and more.”

Tickets for the fashion show cost £5 which includes the first drink.

To book your tickets or for more information call into one of the shops or phone Lizette Hummel on 07867515610.

The Holy Cross Church will also be hosting a bingo night tomorrow (Friday) to help raise further funds.

Entrance costs £2 and a book of six tickets will be £3.

Sandwiches and cake will be available in the interval and the night will begin at 7.30pm.
