Soroptimist International (SI) of Bristol is staging a Fashion Show on Monday 7th March at the Hilton Hotel, Bradley Stoke, in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

With new season’s fashions from Phase Eight and supported by the House of Colour and Bespoke Finery, stalls selling fashion-related items and a raffle for the charity, the evening will celebrate the eve of the centenary of International Women’s Day.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is a cause close to the heart of SI Bristol President Sally Tullett.

Sally, a local business manager at Barclays Bank, said:

“Cystic Fibrosis is one of the UK’s most common life-threatening inherited diseases; it affects my family. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust funds research, it ensures appropriate clinical care and it provides information, advice and support to families affected by the disease. What better way for women to celebrate International Women’s Day than to combine beautiful clothes with raising funds for such a vital cause?”
