Fashion goes on show in Downham Market in aid of Mind

Three businesses in Downham Market are staging a charity fashion show in aid of the mental health charity Mind.

It's being held at Downham Town Hall on Saturday night, from 7.30 - 10pm. Admission to the event is free, including drinks and nibbles.

The show was the idea of Jane Harper, of Moda woman's clothes shop in Downham.

She has teamed up with fellow Downham retailers Parker Optometrists and Smiths Menswear.

'Jane decided the evening should be in aid of the Mind Charity, in an attempt to raise awareness of mental illness,' said david Cole, from Parker.

'Indeed this is a charity close to my heart having suffered from depression myself and realising what a taboo subject it seems to be.

'This is great opportunity for three local businesses to come together in these difficult financial time to raise the profile of themselves, Mind and ultimately Downham traders and hopefully it can become a regular event.'
