Local Models Get Set to Sparkle in Fashion Extravaganza in aid of National Learning Network

20 January 2010

It's set to be the Midleton fashion event of the year and, with all proceeds going to the National Learning Network centre in Rosary Place, Midleton, it's also the charity event not to be missed in 2010. Preparations are now at an advanced stage for 'Glitz and Glam at the Movies: A Fashion Show with a Difference' which takes place in the Midleton Park Hotel on Friday, February 26 next at 8pm.

Guests will see local sporting heroes, popular faces, dancers from the East Cork School of Dance and even a superhero or two take to the catwalk as Hollywood comes to Midleton. The latest fashions are being showcased courtesy of a host of select Midleton stores, including Arcade, Angel Brides and Cummins Sport.

Tickets are on sale now from the Midleton Park Hotel for just €20 for what promises to be a great night out for all of the family. Guests at the event will not only gain insider knowledge on the latest fashions but will also receive a free goodie bag as well as have an opportunity to enjoy some music and dancing ‘til late.

Event organiser, Lynda Murphy, is encouraging members of the local community to come out and support the event:

“We have an incredible show lined up that’s not to be missed and, with all the proceeds going to National Learning Network in the town, it’s for a great cause. We’ve all experienced a bit of cabin fever with the bad weather lately, so this is your chance to enjoy a great night out right on your doorstep.”

National Learning Network, Rehab’s training and employment division, provides high-quality training, education and employment placement services which successfully support over 90 per cent of its 5,000 students in progressing to further education or employment every year. Its Midleton ‘Focus’ programme provides training to 14 people who are overcoming mental health difficulties in areas such as personal development, physical and mental well-being, community integration and vocational/occupational exploration. The aim of the training is to support people in becoming more involved in their local community, in going on to further training and education, or in getting back to work.
