shopaholiCs were able to bag a bargain and do their bit for charity at a fun-filled fashion show.

Around 100 people gathered at the Glasshouse in Kirk Sandall to support Home-Start Doncaster, a charity that helps parents to give their children the best possible start in life.

At the event women were able to buy a selection of designer high street and top-range catalogue garments at a fraction of the normal price.

This is the third time the charity has held the event and although a final fundraising figure is not yet available as money is still coming in organisers are hopeful they should have raised around £400.

All the money raised at the event will go towards this year’s Home-Start Doncaster Christmas party held for children and families across the borough.

Julie Cade, scheme manager for Home-Start Doncaster said: “I’m really pleased with how the event has gone people have been very generous and everyone seems to have had a good time.

“We want to say a big thank you to the Glasshouse who have let us have the venue free of charge for the third time.”

Home-Start Doncaster offers a unique service, recruiting and training volunteers who are usually parents themselves to visit families, with at least one child under five, at home to offer informal, friendly and confidential support.

The charity is currently looking for more volunteers to help out with families across the borough. To find out about becoming a volunteer visit www.homestartdoncaster.org.uk or contact 01302 340856.
