Former patient steps back in time to help Clatterbridge

A former patient is stepping back in time to raise money for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

Caroline Davies joined the Radio Clatterbridge Coffee Club to tell listeners all about her upcoming vintage fashion show.

She was treated for breast cancer at the health park from 2009 to 2010.

Caroline received chemotherapy and radiotherapy from the experts at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre for a particularly malignant strain of the genetic disease.

She now wants to give something back to the people who helped her.

"The staff were fantastic. I don't know if I'd still be here if it wasn't for them." - Caroline Davies, organiser

Caroline is using her interest in vintage clothes to get local businesses and crafters together to hold a glamorous evening of forgotten fashions at the Laurie's Centre, Claughton Road, Birkenhead.

Guests will be able to view genuine vintage clothes and accessories from the 1930s to the 1970s on the catwalk and then have the opportunity to buy many of them.

Radio Clatterbridge presenter Ian Grant is hosting the event on Friday 24th June from 7.30pm and will give the history of each era to the audience.

A number of craft stalls will offer a range of items from jewellery and scarves to vintage lamps.

There will also be music courtesy of Morecambe-based singer Becksy Owens.

 

Caroline explained to Steve Evans how she still needs male models to appear in the show.

In particular, she needs men of any age to appear in a wedding scene wearing a 1940s uniform and a 1950s dinner jacket.

For more information or to buy tickets, call Caroline on 07976 935384, email  or visit Vintage Interior Fairy, Market Street, Birkenhead.

50% of the £5 ticket price will be donated to The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.
