The recently held fashion show held in Firgrove Hotel, Mitchelstown was an excellent success. It was a hugely entertaining night and very beneficial to the Charity “Aware” who will receive a sizeable contribution towards the development of their organisation. The committee are to be highly commended for their professional approach to the event and special gratitude is extended to sponsors for their very generous gifts on the night. Well done to all who helped in any way to ensure the success of this fundraising event.
