At the cutting edge for charity

CUTTING edge clothing will be on display in Morpeth in aid of a youth charity.

Fashion stores at Sanderson Arcade are showcasing their spring and summer collections during An Evening of Entertainment at Riverside Lodge in High Stanners.

As well as a stylish fashion show, there will be music from talented North East singer David Ball.

The event has been organised to promote and raise funds for Barnabas Safe & Sound, which runs the Youth and Activity Centre at Wellwood House in Morpeth and provides vital support services to vulnerable young people.

Its Manager Chris Menzies said: “Working in partnership with Sanderson Arcade has enabled Barnabas Safe and Sound to raise awareness of its activities.

“This event demonstrates that businesses in the town share our vision for a community that enables young people to thrive.”

Students from King Edward VI School will be showcasing their own fashion creations and a silent auction is being held, along with a raffle.

Sanderson Arcade Manager Debbie Anderson, said: “We are looking forward to a great evening.

“It is a real opportunity to promote the work of Barnabas and I can’t wait to see some of the fantastic summer styles that our stores here at the Arcade will be showing.

“We’re particularly excited that the team at Monsoon are taking part as they will have just opened their new store at the Arcade the day before.”

The event is taking place on Thursday, March 24. Doors open at 7pm.

Tickets cost £10 per person, including a glass of bucks fizz and canapés.
