Ripley Fashion Show is a Huge Success

The Monday night trip to the supermarket turned into a whole new experience this week, as the staff transformed the customer restuarant into a fantastic catwalk, complete with lights and even a band, for their charity fashion show.

The show was organised by Kirsty Hardy and colleague Laura Williams to raise money for Sainsbury's Charity of the Year, Dravet Syndrome UK. which works to support children and adults living with this neurological condition. 

It was a fantastic night, with Sainsbury's staff and their children modelling a wide range of clothes from the store's TU clothing collection. The team really got into the spirit and rocked the night!  In our opinion, there area a few who wouldn't look out of place on the top catwalks!  

and to add to the evening, local band Licksquid were on hand to keep us entertained whilst the models got changed.

But it was the kids who really stole the show, striking poses for the audience and clearly really enjoying themselves in casual clothing, nightwear and even a range of fancy dress costumes! 

Cakes and biscuits were on sale, as were raffle tickets and Dravet Syndrome UK merchanside and combined with money raised from the tickets themselves, the store raised a massive £364. 

Sainsbury's are great supporters of our local community and are always happy to promote local events and charities on their information board.  if you've got an event coming up which you want to promote, pop into the store and see the staff on the Customer Service Desk who will be more than happy to help.
