Millbry Hill fashion show boosts Macmillan Cancer Support

STAFF and customers at Millbry Hill raised more than £2,400 for Macmillan Cancer Support after they joined forces to stage a fashion show.

The event was the brainchild of Liz Jones, Marcia Sanderson and Christine Swiers.

Liz is a member of the Jones’ family, owners of Millbry Hill, and Marcia and Christine were competitors in Ride of their Lives at Macmillan Race Day at York – the oldest and largest charity event of its kind in the UK.

Race day features a full card of professional racing alongside charity lunches, auctions, raffles and collections.

The highlight is the Best Western Hotels and Macmillan Ride of their Lives.

Marcia and Christine were among 12 amateur jockeys who each pledged to raise at least £2,500 for Macmillan to take part in the race.

To support the two women in their efforts and help boost the charity funds, more than 400 guests packed into Millbry Hill’s Richmond store for a fashion show featuring a wide range of country clothing for all the family, including Equestrian clothing.

Willing volunteers – including staff and daring friends – modelled clothing from the Millbry Hill range.

Money poured in from ticket sales, a raffle, hog roast and a charity auction.

Marcia said: “The amount of money raised was incredible
and will help provide a family with a Macmillan support worker for eight months.”

Liz said: “We were delighted to be able to help

“As soon as we announced we were holding the fashion show it sparked a huge wave of support.”

Christine Garrett, Richmond store manager, said: “Our customers were hugely generous, we even had donations instore from those who were unable to attend but who wanted to show their support.”

The Macmillan Race Day at York is into its 44th year and has raised more than £5.8m over the years.
