When local businesswoman Jackie Calder visited Rwanda earlier this year as part of an exchange programme, she was touched by the strength & courage of the people she met.
On her return, she set up the Wish For Rwanda charity, with a goal of raising one million pounds for projects to help those whose lives have been adversely affected by events there.
The first event to be held in aid of Jackie’s charity is a Christmas Fashion Show taking place at noon on November 28th in the Balmoral Hotel.
In what promises to be a glitzy and glamourous lunchtime treat, John Lewis will showcase their new winter collections and Boobytrap Boutique will model their latest ranges of luxurious lingerie after guests have been welcomed with champagne and treated to superb food and wine.
Places are limited to 200, with tickets priced at £60 each or £600 for a table of ten. Places can be booked at www.wishforrwanda.com.
