A GROUP of glamorous ladies gave Naomi Campbell a run for her money on Tuesday afternoon, as they took to the catwalk in Milford Haven.
The town’s Inner Wheel Club held a fun fashion show and afternoon tea at the Pill Social Centre to raise much-needed funds for the Paul Sartori Foundation.
The models strutting their stuff were Lynda Brown, Brenda Peake, Liz Courie, Alvis Warrington, Joan Walters, local councillor Guy Woodham and Tim Davies.
They were introduced to the stage by compere Colin Sharp and all the clothes on show were available to buy at Paul Sartori charity shops.
£1,500 was raised through the raffle and a donation from Barclays Bank, and a further £800 was made from ticket sales.
The event was organised by Jean Cooke, President of the Inner Wheel Club of Milford Haven. She said: “All the members have worked really hard to put this on, and we’re delighted with the response. Paul Sartori is such a wonderful foundation, and we’re so fortunate to have it here in Pembrokeshire.
“I’m delighted with how the show has gone. The models are all volunteers and they’ve done a great job. Our oldest member Alivs is a founder member of the Inner Wheel, and has been involved with the Milford Haven club for more than 50 years."
The Mayor of Milford Haven, Yvonne Southwell, said: “It’s a wonderful event for the Inner Wheel; the hard work has really paid off with a great turnout.
“The models look fantastic, they could be professional.
“The clothes are lovely, and a reminder of just what bargains you can pick up at charity shops.”
A warm welcome is extended to anyone wanting to join Milford Haven’s Inner Wheel Club. Members meet on the first Thursday of every month in the Starboard Club.
