The sell-out show, held at The Woodman Inn, Thunderbridge, Huddersfield, was enjoyed by 146 guests and saw a range of fashion displayed by independent retailers from the region.

Members of the Huddersfield Volunteer Group and two of the group’s supporters joined models from the boutiques on the catwalk.

The event was an amazing success. A huge thank you to everyone who bought tickets, The Woodman Inn, boutique staff, models and local businesses. The money raised will help to fund life-saving research to help prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer in Yorkshire.”
