A fashion show event at a branch of Spanish eatery La Tasca has brought in close to £200 for charity.
A New Brighton branch recently held the fashion show event to help the Royal National Lifeboat Association (RNLA). This saw Helen Morton Morris, a local of the area, present a fashion collection with a Spanish theme.
More than 80 people came to see the show, and witness long-time designer Morton Morris' clothing.
They were all provided with sangria when they arrived, in another example of the Spanish theme coming to the fore.
"It was such an enjoyable evening and the response from attendees towards Helen’s designs was fantastic," commented area business development executive, Donna Davies.
"The team at La Tasca is very proud to support local charities, especially the RNLI ."
The RNLA has saved more than 140,000 lives since it was set up in the early 19th century.
Its volunteers man a rescuing service that is available 24/7 and involves more than 230 lifeboat stations. It provides over 1,000 lifeguards on a range of UK beaches, too, and has 4,600 lifeboat crew volunteers and 3,000 shore volunteers.
La Tasca has some 40 eateries around the UK, and recently launched a variety of Sangria cocktails onto its menu.
"We can’t wait to have our bars and terraces filled with happy customers, sampling a Sangria or two and enjoying our award-winning menu," said operations director James Picton, when the announcement was made.
People in restaurant hospitality jobs may wish to consider whether their own venue could host a charity event and help a good cause.
Just a word with the manager could be all it takes to kick start planning for an event that could be very beneficial for the wider world.
