Solihull’s very own British Heart Foundation (BHF) store, located in Mell Square Shopping Centre, is showcasing its fashion treasures for a good cause this Thursday, June 23, by holding a fashion show consisting entirely of wonderful charity shop finds.

It runs from 5.30 to 7.30pm at the charity's Mell Square store.

Talented fashionistas from BHF have created a wonderful collection of looks for all ages and occasions along with the help of volunteer hair stylist, Natasha Small from Reflections Salon in Shirley; from a day in the office to a night at the opera. The show aims to highlight the great quality and diversity of fashions found within BHF charity shops.

BHF shop workers hope to raise much needed funds for the British Heart Foundation and also encourage people to take their unwanted clothing into their local BHF stores and perhaps pick up something new whilst they are there.

Monica Bailey, the BHF store manager in Mell Square, is urging those who love clothes and fashion to come along and support the event: “We are delighted to be able to work with the local college to stage such a fabulous fashion event. We really hope as many people as possible come along and enjoy the evening and see the variety of styles that we have for shoppers of all ages!

“The evening will provide great fashion entertainment and all guests are entered into a free draw for a number of fantastic prizes.

“Whilst the evening promises to be lots of fun we are hoping to raise money for a charity which helps lots of people in the region who suffer with heart disease. Heart and circulatory disease remains the number one killer of people in the UK and the work the BHF does is vital in the fight against it.”

Monica and her assistant manager, Mischa Daniel will be compering the event and tickets, which cost £2, are available from the BHF Store in Mell Square or by calling 0121 711 3185.

Doors open at 5.30pm for shopping and complimentary fizz and nibbles. The main show starts at 6pm. All proceeds are in aid of British Heart Foundation.
