Fundraising duo Jackie Gargett and Donna Kent are staging a fashion show to help a charity build two new homes in a deprived area of Mexico.

The friends and work colleagues at NFU Mutual in Camel Gate, Spalding, will run their show at Weston Hills Village Hall in association with Lincs Fashions.

The show runs from 7pm-9pm on Tuesday, March 28, and promises this season’s fashions from the likes of Next, Wallis and M&S with at least 50 per cent off the ticket value. There will also be local models on the catwalk so the audience can experience a great night out.

Jackie (57), from Weston Hills, decided to support M10 Missions because her nephew, Ryan Coe (15), will travel to Mexico with his school this summer to help with the charity’s work, which includes supporting orphanages and women’s refuges.

Jackie and Donna (30), from Sutterton, have been fundraising for a variety of good causes, including the Spalding-based Agape Care foodbank, for the last six years.

Jackie said: “There’s no better excuse to support charity when there’s fashion involved, especially when cheap as chips retail therapy is on offer.

“It will be such a fun night, and even better for knowing that great work will be done because of it.”

Jackie is originally from the north east and Ryan is at school in Newcastle.

He will go to Mexico in August with teenagers aged 16-18 years.

“Ryan says he will experience life in a Third World country for himself instead of watching it from behind a TV screen,” said Jackie.

On the fashion show night, all money from the £3 ticket price sales and the refreshments sold will go the charity.

“We will be selling homemade cakes and tea,” said Jackie.
