Cheshire based children’s cancer charity, The Joshua Tree, hosted an evening of summer styling at the new purpose-built support centre in Sandiway on Thursday 28th April.
The successful event attracted 40 ladies who dined on cocktails and canapes while entertained by Abi Fisher Boutique and Running Bear Sports Fashion.
Independent fashion boutique, Abi Fisher, housed in a barn conversion in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, showcased the latest handpicked summer collection, creating truly unique looks with classic statement pieces. “We were absolutely delighted to be involved in such a rewarding and enjoyable event organised by The Joshua Tree, who do an amazing job working closely with families affected by childhood cancers. The new Support Centre was a stunning setting to showcase our Spring/Summer 2022 collection and provided an excellent area for the fashion show. It was great to see people coming together and having such a great time whilst raising money for such an excellent cause” commented Abi Fisher, from Abi Fisher Ltd.
The evening raised approx. £1500 to benefit the The Joshua Tree in continuing to help families affected by childhood cancers. The funds raised will help deliver over 30 family support sessions providing emotional, practical and psychological support.
Pippa Watson-Peck, Communications and Fundraising Manager for The Joshua Tree, said: “As a small, independent charity working across the North West and North Wales, we simply couldn’t provide the service to the families who are affected by childhood cancers without the support from the local community and our corporate sponsor for the event Cobalt Wealth based in Knutsford. We are excited to be running a more events this year with an upcoming Golf Day, 100 Cheshire countryside cycle ride and a Ladies Lunch.”
Children’s cancer charity, The Joshua Tree was founded in 2006 by Lynda and David Hill after their son was diagnosed with leukaemia and discovered a distinct lack in support services for all family members during the traumatic experience of childhood cancer.
The charity provides bespoke programmes of support to improve the emotional well-being and mental health of all immediate and extended family members who are affected by childhood cancers, across North-West England and North Wales, for as long as they need it.
The Family Support Team are dedicated to working closely with families to the charity in recognising that every family’s cancer journey is unique, tailoring the services to suit the family’s specific needs, by means of emotional and practical support, such as counselling, art and play therapy, health and wellbeing advice, support in and around the home and educational liaison where required.
