A fashion show is to be held at Open on Bank Plain in Norwich tonight and tomorrow night in aid of a breast cancer support group.

Keeping Abreast’s show will feature as models 26 women who have their own breast cancer stories.

The charity, which has just reached its fifth birthday, was set up in September 2007 by patients Anna Beckingham and Beverley Birritteri and breast reconstruction nurse specialist Ruth Harcourt who recognised a need for women to meet and talk to other women who have been through similar experiences.

The models will be wearing fashions from shops and boutiques in and around the city, as well as having their hair styled by The Gallery hairdressers. Victoria White, fundraising and development manager for the charity, said the models were “really excited” about the show, and said the choreography is “an amazing sight to see.”

She said: “It’s going to be an emotional night, and it’s so important to do the show to raise the profile of breast cancer.”

There are limited tickets left, at £12 for a standard ticket, which includes a welcome drink, or £20 for a VIP ticket.

For more information call Victoria White on 07799 258084.

And don’t forget to buy tomorrow’s paper for full coverage of the show, as well as moving stories from breast cancer survivors.
