Shifnal school banks on the catwalk for stylish fundraising

Pupils, teachers and governors of Sheriffhales Primary School in Shifnal were delighted to hear that two local businesses and their bank manager have teamed up to put on a fundraising fashion show for them.

Supporting communities

30 September 2011

The event which takes place in the Sheriffhales Village Hall at 7:30 pm on 7th October was the brain child of Jenny Hill the owner of the Primrose Hill boutique in Shifnal. When Jenny's RBS business manager Zoë Greenway heard about the show, she immediately contacted another of her customers - Rizzos hair salon in Wellington - and the two businesses, together with Sally Western from the school, agreed to work together to raise money for the school.

RBS business manager Zoë Greenway said: 'When I heard about Jenny and Primrose Hill's plans, I knew Debbie Hinton at Rizzos would be delighted to be involved. Now with clothes being provided by Primrose Hill and hair by Rizzos we know we are onto a real winner and hope to raise £1,500 for the school. One of the commitments of RBS's Customer Charter is 'to support the communities in which we live and work' and I thought my involvement in the show would be an ideal way of showing this in action, but I hadn't bargained with being a model on the night!'

Tickets for the fashion show are priced at £5 and are available from Primrose Hill, Rizzos and Sheriffhales Primary School.
