Roll out the red carpet for hospice fashion show

12th September 2017

Roll out the red carpet and dress to impress for the St Richard’s Hospice fundraising fashion show this month.

The catwalk show will be held at the Bank House Hotel, Spa and Golf in Bransford, near Worcester, from 6.30pm on Thursday, 21st September.

Hospice volunteers will model a carefully curated, Autumn/Winter collection of clothes from Déjà Vu – the St Richard’s designer dress agency in Malvern.

The event will be a great opportunity for guests to enjoy a private shopping experience – picking up luxury brands such as Armani at a fraction of the original cost, all in aid of hospice care.

Alice Brunt, Fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “Following the success of the first St Richard’s Déjà Vu fashion show last year, we are delighted to hold an Autumn/Winter show at the Bank House Hotel later this month.

“It promises to be a really fun – and stylish – evening, so come along, enjoy the show and see if you can pick up a bargain too.”

On the night, there will be a raffle boasting top prizes such as a champagne afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace and a white gold diamond pendant on a silver chain, donated by ICE Fine Jewellery.

Helen Wheels, formerly of Free Radio, will compère the evening while Jane Brooks, a consultant at personal styling franchise House of Colour, will give top tips on what to wear.

Included in the ticket price of £15 is a voucher for 25 per cent off a spa day for two at the Malvern View Spa, within the Bank House Hotel.

Fashion show guests who wish to stay at the Bank House Hotel can enjoy a special rate of £75 single occupancy and £95 double occupancy, inclusive of bed and breakfast.

Contact the hotel directly by calling 01886 833551 or emailing to book a place. Spaces are limited to book quickly to secure your room.

To book tickets for the fashion show visit, pop in to Déjà Vu at Belle Vue Terrace, Malvern, or call the shop on 01684 577890.

The fashion show is sponsored by Knight Frank.
