A corner of East Hampshire was treated to a night of haute couture as dozens gathered around the catwalk for a fashionable fundraiser.

The Petersfield branch of Save The Children (STC) hailed the success of another Fashion Show and Big Sale with hundreds snapping up bargains over three days.

There was standing room only in Tithe Barn in Ditcham for the opening fashion show with the brilliant models donning a fabulous array of outfits.

Most were snapped up on the night while the audience was also treated to a rendition of Children Will Listen by Jenny de Long and a beautiful debut public performance of Grow Up by ten-year-old Eloise Metters.

The event has become a firm fixture for the Petersfield charity since being launched as a good-as-new clothing sale in 1963. The sale features a dazzling array of high-quality fashion, pre-loved and vintage clothing with something to suit all budgets.

Organisers are finding it tougher to secure clothing due to competition from the likes of online outlets like Vinted, but there’s a major reason why people remain keen to help.

Funds from the sale, which have yet to be confirmed, are split 50/50 with vendors getting half and the remainder going to improve bleak lives for children around the world.

For instance, the price of one modelled outfit could send two children to a STC friendly-space to help them recover from traumatic experiences, while proceeds from on-trend tops can buy a basic hygiene kit for a displaced family in Syria.
