Over 100 ladies attended Lady Captain Jane Schofield ‘s fashion show held at the Lightcliffe Golf Club last week in aid of Overgate Hospice.

The ladies on arrival were treated to prosecco and canapés followed by an evening of style and grace.

“Christie Lea” of Hipperholme provided the beautiful outfits ranging from stunning formal wear to smart holiday attire.

Four Lightcliffe Golf ladies, Margaret Marshall, Jane Bedford, Karen Tyler and Judith Crowther modelled outfits with two regular models from “Christie Lea” showing them the way.

The evening was compared with wit and humour by Jane Killian.

“Ka Ra” of Northowram tempted the ladies to buy from their wide selection of modern jewellery and gift ware.

Anyone in doubt over what colour suited them could book a consultation with Julia Sunderland who could provide them with a colour portfolio to suit. A very enjoyable evening ended with a generous donation going to the worthy cause of Overgate.
