At Fuzzy Goose's most recent fashionable event, a host of local celebrities and big fashion names come together for a glamorous fund raising event for one of Europe’s largest cancer treatment centres.
Hosted by GMTV’s Jenny Powell and Key 103’s Chelsea Norris, Stepping Out for the Christie glamorous retailers including Fuzzy Goose, Forever Unique, Rumpus Resort, & Kiki Minchin Jewellery, graced the catwalk runway and turned fashion into fundraising for the evening.
Guests included Ryan Thomas, Lawrence Jones MBE, Armand Beasley, Miss Galaxy England, Sophie Tozer and British F3 Racing driver Oliver Webb (who also modelled in the show).
The show was arranged and launched by Cheshire based Fuzzy Goose founder Jo Brookes, who is bringing back a tried and tested formula that she has hosted over the past 10 years, with close friend Rachel Mamelok. Jo said: “Over the past 10 years, I have done many fundraising events like this with my good friend Rachel Mamelok. Together, we’re bringing back our fashion show at The Manchester Hallmark Hotel, this time to raise much-needed funds for The Christie, where Rachel is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.”
Rachel is being treated for an extremely rare form of breast cancer at the world-renowned hospital. Thanks to funding from donations and events like these, the oncologist treating her had recently been on a conference in America where he learned a new treatment regime for this previously poorly treated and researched form of the disease.
Fuzzy Goose owner added: “Without the funding for this training, Rachel would not have had the opportunity of this type of treatment. Fundraising and donations ensure that The Christie’s medical team have the latest knowledge and skills to treat even the rarest forms of cancer.”
The event raised over £10,000
