Do you fancy attending a fabulous evening of vintage fashion whilst raising money for a deserving charity at the same time? Are you free on 2nd April and nearby to Caterham, Surrey? Then come to Joanna and her Vintage Violets Charity Catwalk show in aid of Invest in ME.
Not only will you have the chance to watch models dressed in beautiful vintage-inspired clothing from the 40s and 50s in the fashion show, but you can also get a mini vintage makeover and photo in exchange for a donation to the charity, put your best vintage garments on for a chance to win the “best dressed prize”, and boogie the night away at the after party.
Tickets include a complimentary glass of wine or beer and a goody bag. And if you want someone to join you later at the after party, tickets for this can be bought separately.
Early bird ticket (limited number available) £15 + £1.64 admin fees (this as at the bottom of the ticket options on Eventbrite)
Normal ticket: £20 + £1.79 admin fees
Ticket for the after party only: £5 + £1.34 admin fees
Why Invest in ME?
My mother, who is also a milliner who designs and makes vintage-inspired hats, is organising the event and had chosen this charity as both myself and my brother suffer from ME (Myalgic encephalomyelitis)
Currently, there is no treatment besides those aimed at managing symptoms or aimed at helping you cope psychologically. Biomedical research into this ME is urgently needed to help improve the lives of the 250,000 people in the UK left to suffer with this chronic illness.
This is what Invest in ME are doing. They are fundraising for the most promising areas of research for treatments and pinpointing the cause of ME. This illness steals lives. It leaves most sufferers so severely ill that they cannot work and struggle to carry out basic household tasks. Some can work, others cannot leave their beds. We need answers, and we need hope. We need Invest in ME.
