A charity fashion show will take place in Ashington next week.

Style conscious bargain hunters are being invited to Scope’s first ever catwalk event, which is being held at the town’s football club.

Designer labels being modelled with an offer to buy on the night include Gucci, Ben Sherman, Bench, Jane Norman and French Connection.

Angela Hemsley, the manager of the Ashington outlet, said: “It’s going to be a great night and those attending can enjoy a guilt-free shopping spree, safe in the knowledge that all the money raised is going to support Scope’s vital work with people with disabilities.

“At Scope we’re all about changing society for the better so that disabled people and their families can have the same opportunities as everyone else.”

A special wedding section will be also showcased on the night.

The fashion extravaganza is at the football club’s Woodhorn Lane ground on Thursday, October 24, from 7pm.

Tickets for the fundraiser are £2 and available from Scope at 13 Station Road, Ashington, or on the door.
