WOODEND HOLDS FABULOUS FASHION SHOW
The residents, staff and friends of Bupa’s Woodend Nursing and Residential Centre, Bradgate Road, Altrincham, were treated to a fashion show on Sunday 27 September. The show was held in memory of Pat Morris and to raise funds for the new Altrincham General Hospital. The show took place at 2.00pm and attracted over 100 visitors to the home. Clothes were donated from fashion retailer Rackhams and all visitors received refreshments and nibbles. The event included two shows, each lasting approximately one hour and they featured fashions for children, men, women, young fashion and brides-to-be. All outfits were superbly modelled by Pat’s relatives and friends and staff members and their family from Bupa’s Woodend. Goody bags, which included gifts from Bupa and Rackhams were given to all visitors and a raffle was held to support the hospital. Tours of the home were available on the day to those guests interested in viewing the residence. The late Pat Morris, a resident of Woodend, sadly lost her battle with cancer earlier this month. She was an avid health campaigner who fought for improved hospital services in Altrincham. She campaigned tirelessly to the end and led the organisation of the fashion show. The event raised £406.39 for her chosen cause. Claire Harty, home manager at Bupa’s Woodend, said: “Pat was a resident who was loved by all and she will be sadly missed. The day was a fantastic success and I think Pat will be extremely proud of what was achieved. The residents, relatives and visitors at Woodend have had a great day in memory of Pat and her cause to raise money for the new Altrincham General Hospital.” Bev Lam, Bupa’s sales and marketing executive, said: “The event was a great achievement and I am sure Pat would have been very pleased with the outcome. A special thank you goes to Rackhams, especially Sheila Rowlands from Coast and Karen Hobbs from Cheska who offered an enormous amount of support. Everybody involved with the day should be enormously proud of their efforts and the amount of money raised for the new Altrincham General Hospital.” For further information or to make a donation to the new Altrincham General Hospital, please contact League of Friends of Altrincham General Hospital on 0161 941 3264.
