Little Black Dress Charity Event, great success

The Little Black Dress Fashion and Beauty charity Event was an absolute success and from what I gather everyone enjoyed the Temple Spa hosted event. There was a real buzz of excitement as over 150 fashion and beauty lovers filled the Alea Casino, Clarence Dock, Leeds.

Many ladies were secret santa’s bringing along gifts for 96.3 Radio Aires Cash For Kidz Christmas Appeal in association with Asda. Every year thousands of children across the region wake up on Christmas morning with no presents, its heart breaking and sad to know this really is happening. I don’t think people realise quite how much the Leeds Fashion scene does for charity its constant. Christmas Kisses and the Raffle raised almost £300 – thank you to everyone for your kind support.

Proceeds from the raffle will go to Temple Spa West Yorkshire’s chosen charity, Mercy, a national charity helping young women between the ages of 18-28, suffering from life controlling issues, such as eating disorders, self-harm, depression, and the effects of abuse in all its forms, providing support that tackles the root causes of these issues. Mercy seek to break the cycle of destruction, by helping one young woman at a time find freedom and restoration in a beautiful and safe home-like environment.

Well done to everyone involved in planning and organising the event, what successful and enjoyed evening out with the girls!!
