ANY fashion show from Milan to New York would be proud to have these women on their runway but it was Leven who was lucky enough to host them last week for a charity fashion show.

The women all met each other through cancer support group Breast Friends, and having themselves been offered support in their times of need, decided to do something to help others and raise awareness of the charity.

Sainsbury’s in Leven offered its upstairs cafe and clothes from its TU range and last Wednesday the women became models for the day and put on a show for 120 paying guests.

On the night, through ticket money and a raffle, over £900 was raised which will be split between the Breast Friends charity and Maggie’s Fife as well as Sainsbury’s own charity of the year Fife Young Carers.

Sainsbury’s spokesperson Donna Donnelly said she was delighted help out the women by offering the supermarket as a venue.

“The show was a great success. Everyone involved done really well and should be proud of themselves.

“We sold their charity calendars last year and they asked us to donate something to a raffle but we suggested they do a fashion show instead.

“It was great to have them all in. It highlights that there is a support network in this area.

“We wish them all well.”
