Models needed for Winston’s Wish event!

Date: Friday 31st March 2017

Venue: Mercedes – Benz Showroom, Whitefield, Manchester

Winston’s Wish, in association with Jane Clynes Events, will be hosting a Fashion Show with a difference at the Mercedes-Benz Showroom in Whitefield.

How would you fancy modelling on our Catwalk of Courage? After reading that you will either be brimming with excitement or running for the hills!

We want you to bear in mind that this event is about courage and for many it will take a lot to put yourself in the spotlight. What we want you to keep in mind is that everyone will be in the same boat and will need the same amount of courage, so let’s support each other to help raise funds for Winston’s Wish.

Each model will be asked to raise sponsorship for their courage in taking part. You can also take part in memory of someone and dedicate your fundraising to that special person in your heart.

We are looking for 10 men and 10 women to come and take part. We also need 20 children to be our Mini Models – so let’s get everyone involved and bring this to life!

You will be showcasing local boutique fashions with two sections to the event; one for daywear and other for evening wear.

Each adult model will be asked to look for a sponsor, which we ask for £250 each. Each sponsor will get their logo on the promotional literature and in the programme too. I will also be here to support you in finding a sponsor.

If you would like to know more or are feeling in the moment and want to sign up, please get in touch with me on 07867428914 or email
