A group of Carlisle women held an 'incredible' fashion show last weekend, raising £2000 for Motor Neurone Disease Association. 

The organisers, Isabel Hurst, Annette Oxley, Evlyn Goddard and Jane Jones raised just over £2,000 from a fashion show which showcased clothes from Label of Brampton.

The event took place at Wetheral Village Hall on Sunday, November 26 and was organised after Isabel's niece was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. 

Over 100 people enjoyed a lively couple of hours of Prosecco, canapés and a showcase of fashion by Label of Brampton.

Regional Fundraiser David McDonough said: "I would like to thank everyone who organised the afternoon which was absolutely fantastic and was a really positive event filled with laughter and smiles. The incredible amount raised will make a huge difference and help us to care for those living with MND, it means so much to us. Thank you to the whole community for their support."

Motor neurone disease (MND) is an uncommon condition that affects the brain and nerves.

Isabel Hurst said: "The MND association event at Wetheral Village Hall went amazingly well. 

"This money will be a tremendous help for Motor Neurone Disease Association and will be a great benefit for those who are fighting this disease.   

"I really couldn't have done it without the help and support from my friends Annette Oxley, Evlyn Goddard, Jane Jones and Sue Hopper.  Evlyn and Jane made 900 canapes for the event which is just amazing.

"The feedback from all those who attended, was that the event was a resounding success.  The venue complemented the occasion.  The clothing and all the models were fantastic.  Label Preloved clothing and dress agency has some beautiful clothing for every occasion. "
