007 Bond Glamour Comes to Our Ladies Convent School
Under the careful guidance of organiser Mrs Linda Lambert, Our Lady’s Convent School Parents’ Association recently hosted a glittering ‘007’ themed fundraising fashion show. Retailers from Loughborough were generous in their support of this event; outfits and accessories were supplied by NEXT, Devine, Rumours, Pink, Guitars and Glad Rags, Lavender Room, All Things Cute, Hadley Green, The Little Boutique Co. and Amour. Whilst Lee’s Girls of Shelthorpe produced stunning hair styles and The Body Shop crafted exquisite make up.
Models were recruited from OLCS students and ranged in age from three to 18, and were joined by some older boys from local schools. Overall the event raised nearly £850 with £137 raised by the raffle specifically identified for Rainbows and Riding for the Disabled Centres in Somerby and Keyworth. Speaking after the event, Mrs Jo Baker, Chair of the Parents’ Association said, “One of the many highlights was seeing the creativity and flair from the senior girls who took up the challenge to ‘upcycle’ old outfits into something fashionable and new.” She went on to say, “I would like to thank Mrs Lambert and everyone who supported us in producing this show.”
