Old Catton grandmother’s charity fashion show
A grandmother from Old Catton who smashed her charity fundraising target last year is continuing her efforts to help sick children by holding a fashion show.
Wendy Alcock's grandson, Jackson Robinson, who suffers from a rare illness of the immune system, is supported by East Anglia's Children's Hospices at Quidenham.
Mrs Alcock, of Billing Close, raised more than �55,000 for the charity last year, and the retired head teacher of Catton Grove First and Nursery School is organising a fashion show at Old Catton Junior School on Friday, April 27, starting at 7pm.
Jackson, who will be three in August, suffers from Autoimmune enteropathy, which means that he is fed using a tube and pump, and struggles to gain weight.
The fashion show will include a formal wear showcase by Dreams of Sprowston and new and nearly new donated high street labelled clothes will also be modelled and sold at charity shop prices.

There will also be a chance for the fashion conscious to take part in make-up, hair and nail demonstrations.
Jessica Hiscocks, Norfolk fundraiser, said: 'We're really excited by the fashion show as we know how good Wendy is at organising events and this is an opportunity to pick up a real bargain and raise money at the same time.'
