A charity fashion show was held at the M&Co shop last week in aid of the Salvation Army in Brighouse.

Young and old members of the corps - some as young as three - acted as models for the evening as they paraded various selections of clothing on the catwalk in front of a large crowd.

The successful evening raised a total of £350 for the Brighouse Salvation Army Corps.

Spokeswoman Gillian Greetham said the money raised will help with the ever demanding needs of the people of Brighouse who regularly call upon the help of the Brighouse Salvation Army with food parcels, hot meals and those families who need the Salvation Army’s help this Christmas with toys for their children.

“A big thank you goes to M&Co for their help with raising this amount of money from the charity fashion show,” she said.

The Brighouse Christmas Toy Appeal begins on Monday, December 1. Drop-off points around town are Wilkinsons, Superdrug and Boyes, as well as the Salvation Army.

Children’s names are already coming in from social workers and health visitors for help for families in need this year.

Gillian said: “Let’s try and spread a little joy to them. Let’s remember the true meaning of Christmas, the greatest gift of all - Christ.”
