Roll up roll up for the annual KEMP Hospice Fashion Show

Preparations are well under way for KEMP Hospice’s annual Fashion Show which will be held at Kidderminster Town Hall on Wednesday 22nd October from 7:30pm Organised by KEMP’s Donations Centre team based in Lisle Avenue, Kidderminster, this event is a high spot of the Retail team’s year. Lynne Jones, Head of Retail said: “This is a great community event. Our volunteers at the donations centre decided the theme as soon as last years’ show was over, and have been picking out suitable outfits ever since. This year it’s ‘Thank you for the music’, so no prizes for guessing there will be an ABBA element! “We raised over £5,000 last year, so the pressure’s on to beat that. All the shops pitch in and help, and we are very fortunate to be sponsored once again by Barclays Bank. Dickie Dodd from Signal 107 will be our compere, Kidderminster College will be, as always, helping with the sound and lighting and we have volunteers from local companies including Marks and Spencer and Vision Labs modelling for us. It’s is a sell-out event every year, so please buy your tickets early!” Following the show there will be a Shopping Hall and bar available open until 10pm, with the Shopping Hall continuing again on the Thursday 23rd October. KEMP Donations Centre manager, Lilian Griffiths, commented: “We all look forward to putting on this event, it’s one of the highlights of our year. As we sort we pick out outfits, then match them to the models, decide on music etc. It’s great fun! “We are actively recruiting volunteers for our Lisle Avenue Donations Centre, and we hold an open morning on the last Tuesday of every month, so anyone interested in volunteering for KEMP, please pop in and have a look round, and enjoy a coffee and a cake – we would all love to meet you.” A ticket only show; tickets can be purchased from all KEMP shops, KEMP Hospice or from the Town Hall for £5 which includes a glass of wine within the price. Doors open at 7 with the show starting at 7.30pm. For more information about the event or to find out how you can help support KEMP Retail, please contact Lynne Jones on 01562 228487 or email:
