SHOPPERS feeling the credit squeeze can buy designer clothes and high street labels at discount prices while helping raise money for charity at a fun fashion show in Barnstaple on Tuesday, September 22.

The event is being staged by the Barnstaple branch of the British Red Cross and hosted by St John's Garden Centre at Newport, which has donated its restaurant premises free for the evening.

All the clothes on offer are new season stock, discounted to half of the high street price. Local ladies of varying ages and sizes will be modelling the outfits and there'll be plenty of opportunity to try clothes on. There is no pressure at all for people to buy, but if they do choose to, payment can be accepted by cash, cheque or card

"All money raised during the evening will provide vital funds for our services in Devon and we're all looking forward to a fun evening," said Paul Willerton, Barnstaple Red Cross branch co-ordinator.
