A VIP fashion evening featured catwalks, welcome drinks and nibbles at the Chapel Street store on Thursday, May 5th.

Models showcased the new ROMAN summer collection and throughout the evening guests were given the chance to shop from the range.  50 tickets were sold in advance of the show which was in aid of Galloway’s Society for the Blind, making it a sell-out event.  A raffle was drawn on the night, with several local businesses, including the Latin Lounge, Pure Floral Designs and Barrett & Coe, donating prizes to boost funds raised from this event.

Anna Eddowes-Scott, Community Fundraiser for Galloway’s commented, “We are so grateful for the support that ROMAN has given Galloway’s by choosing to fundraise for us through this event.”

“It was also great to see some of our service users getting involved in the event and taking part as models for the fashion show. Kate and her team were great at putting them at ease and making sure that the shop layout was accessible for everyone attending the event.”

The evening raised £420, which will help Galloway’s continue to support people living with sight loss in the Sefton and Lancashire area. ROMAN manager, Kate Brazier reported, “We are always happy to support charities, like Galloway’s, that provide such an essential service to the local community. The event was a great success and we look forward to working with Galloway’s in the future.”
