Nearly £6,000 was raised for Manchester charity Variety, which helps sick, disabled and disadvantaged children, when it partnered with Mercedes-Benz and LSH Auto UK for a fashion show.
The charity was supported for the first time by Mercedes-Benz and LSH Auto UK at the Whitefield dealership, with around 150 people being entertained by Bollywood dancers and models showcasing women’s, men’s and children’s wear.
Mandi Rawlings, marketing manager of the Fashion Show Fundraiser and Mercedes-Benz of Birmingham & Manchester, said: “It was a fantastic evening and I couldn’t be happier to have raised so much money for such a worthy cause.
“We hope to continue the thriving partnership between LSH Auto UK and Variety, the Children’s Charity, which is a charity close to everyone’s heart.”
Variety were inaugurated in the UK in 1949 and was one of the UK’s first charities to be founded especially for children and young people. They have raised more than £270 million and funded over 5,000 Sunshine Coaches, wheelchairs and thousands of grants to individuals, helping with life-saving support for children’s hospitals, hospices and youth clubs.
