ABOUT 100 women enjoyed a clothes swap event which raised £1,255 for charity.

Ellen Chisholm, of Ermine Way, Stamford, organised the event which took place at the United Reformed Church Hall in Star Lane, Stamford.

The event was sponsored by Phase Eight, which has a shop in Ironmonger Street, and included a demonstration by stylist Sandi Lindley, who demonstrated how to wear clothes to flatter your shape.

During the event, women were able to buy clothes, have their own style consultation, enjoy a mini facial and try out Avon products, as well as enter a raffle.

Ellen was fundraising for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, a disease which affects her friend Ned Cullen, of Queen’s Walk, Stamford.

She said: “We raised £1,255 which was almost double the amount from the event last year, so I was absolutely thrilled. Everyone seemed to enjoy the night and many people updated their wardrobe.”

She thanked the helpers, everyone who attended and the businesses which contributed raffle prizes.
